From the liner notes by Gordo:

Song no 2: Private Affair by The Saints, Australia.
"Originally released in 78 in the album Eternally Yours, this is my favourite song, of course, it is the Saints, the best of all 77 generation."

Comment by Justin Barrington-Higgs:

This album would at least be of curiosity value no matter what it sounded like-a Brazilian hardcore thrash band performing their favourite punk songs including both obscure European and seminal Anglo/Australian/American punk and thrash bands, contained in a cover that cleverly parodies Guns'n'Roses' "Spaghetti Incident?" ("Feijoada" is a Brazilian stew consisting of black beans and pig parts...)

As it turns out, the album is also quite listenable-the band does a capable job of recreating the sound and energy of the originals. The Saints song is a case in point - Ratos de Porao copies the original from Eternally Yours pretty faithfully (including cross-channel vocals!) until lead singer Gordo lets rip with a vocal reminiscent of Max Cavalera from Sepultura, Ratos de Porao's friends and compatriots.

It is also interesting to hear their version of (the Saints' rivals) Radio Birdman's arrangement of the Hawaii-Five-O theme...
