Thus, on this record you’ve got in your hands a compendium of Black Flag, Black Sabbath, Brant Bjork, Kyuss, Desert Sessions, Zefirina Bomba, Pixies, Queens of the Stone Age, Sonic Youth, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Melvins, 1960/1970 garage rock, desert landscapes of the Brazilian Northeast countryside, automotive etc. Depicting themes in their lyrics such as loneliness and mystery ("Estrada Deserta"), addictions ("Una Ranchera Romantica"), the hustle and bustle of everyday life ("Tudo"), travel through the desert stoner ("Mais Um Morto No Deserto ") and more addictions (" Coma ").
