UHF - No Jogo Da Noite (Ao Vivo Em Almada) 1985

This combo is another favourite one which we enjoy very often and they are quite popular in their country and make music to this day. UHF were formed in the late 1970s in Almada by António Manuel Ribeiro (vocals, guitar & keyboard), Renato Gomes (guitar), Carlos Peres (bass) and Zé Carvalho (drums). They have released numerous singles and albums and a complete overview can be found here with a small biography (although in Portuguese). Musically not really punk but they celebrate on this mini-album, recorded live at 23, 24 and 25 of November at the Cultural Center Alfeite in Almada, six decent goodies in forty minutes. The album is released only in order to complete the contractual obligations between the band and Radio Triomphe. Unhappy with the publisher UHF refuse to deliver more original songs and propose the final year of contract recording a live album. Shortly after the release Radio Triumph declare bankruptcy. Renato Gomes, guitarist & founding member, left the band and was replaced by Rui Rodrigues. This is the first live album of the band and remains today as the most rare and expensive record, a gem for collectors. Reason enough listen to!
