NZZN began as a Rock covers band, who played in the Cascais area. The group formed by Necas guitar, Zica drums, Zé Nuno bass and Armino vocals at one point began to compose originals. NZZN rehearsed at the Associação Popular de Paço D´Arcos, Lisbon, and had already done several songs and because Vedeca label was betting on Portuguese Rock bands, the group contacted them in order to get a contract. Follows the edition of their 1st single "Vem Daí" in 1981, and months later their 2nd one "Trip Fixe". The band played live everywhere. On February 1982 NZZN goes to the Valentim de Carvalho studios, with the production Mike Sergeant, and recorded what would be their first full lenght, "Forte e Feio". But due to the inexperience of the producer in the Rock music, the band is not satisfied with the final result. Began some internal problems which leads the band to disintegrate.

  1. Mike Sergeant inexperient in Rock music, that's a funny one.

  2. Luís in this kind of Rock music (Heavy Metal) in that time, you can bet he was! And the result is the lack of "power" on the record production.
