“Brazilian girl please look at me… was singing the man in Portuguese”

In the summer of 1990 I was invited to Sao Paulo, Brazil to meet the members of the band Metro. They had been widely popular in South America, playing football stadiums and large venues. The singer had gone solo and they wanted to try something different. It was a party. After a few weeks of rehearsals, recordings, artsy parties, and a meeting with a Mother Of All Saints (who approved of me and our partnership), it was decided that we would settle in Belgium and make it happen.

Recorded in 1992 at Pyramid Studios, Brussels, Belgium by Gilles Martin. Produced by Gilles Martin and The Passengers.The Passengers are: Dany Roland (drums), Yann Laouenan (keyboards), Denis Moulin (bass), Diako Diakoff (vocal, guitar). Management by Olivier Daube.
