Intervenzione‘ was an anarcho HC/punk band from Aveiro with some people of ‘Inkisição‘: Helena Burbuleta singing, Rui Maia on drums and Miguel Angelo Marques Tavares doing bass (+ vocals). João Filipe Escudeiro & (later) Tiago joined in on guitar. They did a split-7″ with ‘Yuppiecrusher’ on a Finnish label (1998) and album (entitled Wall Of Shame) on the Portugese label (Rastilho recs) in 1999. Their song Words appeared on the Animal Liberation compilation-LP that Philippe ‘Boezie’ Buze (Awakening recs) released. After the band had quit there was the CD Last Screams with unreleased studio and live tracks.

I reviewed this as follow in Tilt! #9: >>This is the new band of Inkisiçao’s Helena & Rui. They’re hitting jackpot again: their enraged melodic HC/punk will without doubt thrill a lot of people. Musically they remind me a lot of ‘Subway Arts’. The dual vocals are also full of conviction. When the vinyl’s out, I’ll be able to tell you about the lyrics…<<


This was a time in my life that I felt a big joy, that I met wonderful people and had the opportunity to make a difference through music. I was a young girl full of ideals 😍 and I wanted to change the world. Somehow I still do…
