In July 1988 the group released their debut album "Mão Morta" via Ama Romanta a Portuguese indie label, run by João Peste, considered by many one of the country's best alternative rock albums. Later that year the group had the opportunity to open for Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds on their two Portuguese shows, in Lisboa and Porto.

Mão Morta were the band most likely to become the Swans' Portuguese followers and brethren. Even their formation is reportedly due to a tip-off given to Joaquim Pinto by Swans' bassist Harry Crosby, when Pinto attended a Swans concert in Berlin.
