Bonde do Role: Bondallica
Bonde Do Role; With Lasers (Domino) BEST OF ELSEWHERE 2007

The little I knew of Bonde do Role on the release of this was this much: they were from southern Brasil. Oh, and this -- they are mountains of eclectic fun.

They sounded as if they had thrown some rock guitars, funky beats and hip-hop into a blender and pushed the button which says "random chop".

They mashed it all up with some obviously local flavours, had a track called James Bonde (of course), and another which crashed in with metal guitars called Bondallica.

Best cheap and unashamed fun since the Mika album (which doesn't appear on this "best of" list, because these people do -- but feel free to have camp fun with Mika in your own goodtime.)
