Album Notes
The Soaked Lamb is a band of roots music with strong influences of pre-war
blues and jazz. The band was formed in 2006 and it¹s composed of six
members. Miguel Lima plays reco-reco, that idiophone instrument that sounds
great due to the friction of a small stick on a piece of bamboo. He also
plays an actual musical instrument: drums. Vasco Condessa plays every key of
the piano. Gito is responsible for the lower notes. He¹s able to play
upright bass like any other good performer, but with less strings. Both Gito
and Vasco spend their days, when they¹re not playing, working in advertising
as a consuming hobby. Afonso Cruz ­ a director and illustrator that brews
his own beer ­ plays guitar, blues harp, ukulele and banjo. He also sings
and writes the lyrics and songs. Sometimes he wears a mustache, sometimes he
doesn¹t. The main vocals are the responsibility of Mariana Lima, one of the
most feminine members of the band. Her voice brings memories over seventy
years old and lyrics often written in iambic pentameters (or so). Tiago
Albuquerque plays sax, clarinet, guitar and concertina, and because his days
are longer, he also illustrates and directs animation movies. He uses --
like all the other members of the band, except for one -- a hat.
The first CD was recorded on Sundays, calmly during a whole year. During the
sessions a typical Portuguese recipe of soaked lamb was served, hence the
name of the band. If you listen carefully, you can actually notice the songs
recorded with a breath scent of cumin, wine and mint.
