Contra-Ataque - Demos and Lost Tracks (????)

I'm starting to run out of rare bands but this time I bring ya another gem from Brazil. The land where the girls are beautiful and where football is more than just a sport, I bring you 'Contra Ataque'. Formed in the late 80's in the city of Porto Alegre, Contra Ataque became an icon for the Carecas (Brazilian Skinheads) as well with Carbonario, Virus 27, and Histeria Oi!. The band appeared in 2 Brazilian Oi! compilations, 'Oi! um Grito De Uniao vol 2 and 3' released by Rotten Records. Influenced by British Oi!, the band made a name all over Brazil, but the punks never had a chance to see them due to divisions in the scene between punks and skins. By the mid 90's the band split up and guitarrist Ze Loco formed a continuation of Contra Ataque under the name of 'Corrosao', but until now the band has not released any full lengths, only demos.
