Seminal Brazilian rock band inspired by Pink Floyd and Yes, the Bixo da Seda, led by Fughetti Luz, was with the Liverpool (from which it derived), the first rock groups from the Rio Grande do Sul state to have a nationwide reputation. Formed by Fughetti (vocals), Pecos Pássaro (guitar), Mimi Lessa (guitar), Renato Ladeira (keyboards), Marcos Lessa (bass), and Edson Espíndola (drums), the group started in 1967 as Liverpool Sounds, then changed for Liverpool (influenced by The Beatles and the Rolling Stones), and in the early '70s adopted the definitive denomination, moving to Rio de Janeiro. Their only two albums were Hei, Menina (1971) and Bixo da Seda (1975). In 1976, they became the supporting group for As Frenéticas.
