In 1989, 5 rockers fed up with an amorphous city, decided form a band. Name? Tédio Boys (Boredom Boys). They transformed a city, Coimbra, Portugal, and became a myth of Portuguese pop culture. Chaos, police, rock’n’roll!
Always acting against the current, Tédio Boys were the visible face of an attitude that implied since playing in the street in concerts improvised and interrupted by the police. The same attitude that took them on three tours in the United States being invited in one of them by Joey Ramone to perform at his birthday party and lived the moment of greatest national media impact when some of his members acted in the “Queima das Fitas de Coimbra” naked, with body covered with blood curds and plucked chickens tied around the waist!
In 1994, Toni Fortuna (voice), Victor Torpedo (guitar), Carlos “Kaló” Mendes (drums), André Ribeiro (bass) and Paulo Furtado (guitar), release the debut album “Porkabilly Psychosis”. In this iconic album are some of the great classics of Tédio Boys “Billy the Kid”, “Tedio Curse” or “Lost in the Jungle”.
