Se eu fizesse uma lista das coisas que me influenciaram, certamente este show estaria nela.

Na década de 90 – enquanto eu tentava lidar com as primeiras armadilhas da adolescência – existia na minha cidade natal uma videolocadora especializada em música. Entre os CDs e VHS disponíveis na Alphaveloca, este VHS certamente foi o que eu mais loquei (até conseguir um VCR emprestado e fazer uma “cópia não autorizada”).

E foi assim que eu me apaixonei pela atmosfera dark…

Assista: The Cure: In Orange – gravado no antigo teatro romano da província de Orange – França, em 9 de agosto de 1986.

A couple of days ago I took a trip with my girlfriend to some places in UK.
The place I was more excited to know was Manchester, for obvious music-passion reasons.
You can ignore my terrible face (not-so-terrible because of my dream-come-true smile) and see me in 5 important places in Manchester – the music Factory. ^^

Salford Lads Club

Salford Lads Club: where the legendary photo for the cover of “The Queen Is Dead” Smiths’ album was shooted.

(former) Fac 51 The Haçienda

(former) Fac 51 The Haçienda: (was) a legendary nightclub, born place of “madchester” movement and acid culture.

Macclesfield Cemetery

Macclesfield Cemetery: Ian Curtis’ memorial stone.

King's Road 384

King’s Road 384: Morrissey’s old house.

The Iron Bridge

The Iron Bridge: mentioned in “Still Ill” The Smiths song.

The Scottish band formed by the Reid brothers in the 80’s are a tough one.

Mixing introspective, chaotic, drugged, nihilistic lyrics with noise guitars, Jim Reid (the singer brother) said once that the band was influenced by the bad music from the 80’s…once it was just crap music running on the radios, he and his brother (William) decided to start a band. The result: The Jesus And Mary Chain

Last year, I finally could see them live. Probably that performance was far from one of the best J&MC’s concerts, with a lot of sound return problems annoying Jim, besides some interruptions to little fight/chats with William, but magic also happens: At the first chords of “Happy When It Rains”, started to rain!!!

It will be always a beautiful memory for me. You can see the entire concert here:

And, if you want to really know the subversive of J&MC, I recomend you to listen at least the first 3 records:
– Psychocandy;
– Darklands;
– Barbed Wire Kisses.
