5 stars I've known Mario Neto during the 80's. I could hear the tapes of Depois do Fim before it was released, during a night in which he had invited some fellows to his house. I was one of those (few) fortunated ones.

On that time (1983) he had just finished his graduation in Civil Engineering at the Federal University from Rio de Janeiro. Like me. Then, he looked very enthusiastic about his Bacamarte project.

Although the other musicians were quite good, the band was idealized by and spinned off around Mario Neto and his musical talent to compose, arrange and play. Unfortunatelly, when finally he had the support from a influential rock radio to show his music to people, it was already the first half of the eighties, those songs, composed in a relatively short period around the middle seventies, probably were considered old- fashioned by the rest of Brazilian midia, which were betting their shirts on shorter and easier-to-memorize songs.

I lost contact with him by the middle of the eighties, but I can imagine Mario frustration by the lack of reception to his music, after a very hopeful beginning.

Having past twenty-five years from it, recently we have changed a couple of e-mails, and he told me the bad news: the master tapes of Depois do Fim were lost. I'm not quite sure, but it appears that someone has stealed it from him.

I'm afraid that this is not reversible. It is a hard loss for me and all of people who admires this masterpiece.
