O Começo do fim do Mundo (The Beginning of the End of the World) was a punk festival that took place at the SESC Fábrica da Pompéia, in São Paulo, Brazil on November 27th and 28th, 1982, which was captured live and raw to cassette for a compilation LP of the same name featuring most, if not all of the bigger names in ‘80s Brazilian punk — INOCENTES, CÓLERA, LIXOMANIA, OLHO SECO, and RATOS DE PORÃO — as well as tracks from 14 other lesser-known bands, many of whom never recorded or released another song. With copies of the original compilation LP commanding three-figure prices today (if you can even find one and especially for clean copies), this expanded 2LP reissue, timed to coincide with the 35th anniversary and reunion of the original festival was much needed. Included in this mammoth are the original 19-song LP, an additional 23-song LP of tracks taken from the festival including tunes from SKISITAS and [the great] ULSTER, two bands that were absent from the original, a 36-page booklet of photos of the event captured by Paul Constantinides, repros of the original program and 90cm x 60cm poster, and a write up by Antonio Bivar, one of organizers of the original O Começo do fim do Mundo festival.
