The riotous party music played by international ensemble Fumaça Preta (pronounced "Foomassa Pretta" and meaning "Black Smoke") combines deep, fuzzy psychedelic funk inspired by everything from Brazilian macumba, batacuda, and latter-day tropicalia to James Brown, analog electronica, Turkish psychedelia, garage rock, and post-punk. Through his many travels, Portuguese-Venezuelan producer and drummer Alex Figueira -- founder of Amsterdam's Music with Soul Records -- made the acquaintance of Stuart Carter (guitars, Moog, organ) and bassist James Porch, both of the U.K. garage funk unit the Grits, after catching a gig, and later, met São Paulo native-cum-American citizen Joel Stones (owner of the iconic Tropicalia in Furs record store and barter shop), who became lead vocalist.

Mudhoney is an American alternative rock band. Formed in Seattle, Washington in 1988 following the demise of Green River, Mudhoney's members are singer and rhythm guitarist Mark Arm, lead guitarist Steve Turner, bassist Guy Maddison and drummer Dan Peters. Original bassist Matt Lukin left the band in 1999. Mudhoney's early releases on the Sub Pop label, particularly their debut single "Touch Me I'm Sick" and the Superfuzz Bigmuff EP, were massively influential on the Seattle music scene. More than almost any other release of the era they inspired the dirty, high-distortion sound that would become grunge. Later on, Mudhoney also mixed heavy blues rock and punk rock into their sound at various stages. Although the band has found little commercial success during its long career, which has yielded nine studio albums, it has inspired countless grunge and alternative rock musicians.

Calamity Jane was an all-female American grunge/punk band, formed in Portland, Oregon, United States, in 1989. Gilly Ann Hanner (vocals/guitar) and Lisa Koenig (drums) started playing together as a band in 1988 along with Ronna Era (bass). After a few live appearances Hanner's sister Megan took over on bass and the band was renamed Calamity Jane the following year.[1] Their first gig was supporting Scrawl. The band then supported Fugazi on their 1990 tour.[2] The band released three singles and an album Martha Jane Cannary[3] with their original line up, and a final single with Marci Beesecker (aka Marci Martinez - later of Team Dresch) on drums and Joanna Bolme (later of Quasi and The Jicks) on bass. The band played two support slots with Nirvana. One of these shows, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, ended in Calamity Jane being booed off the stage, which motivated Nirvana to intentionally sabotage their own performance.
