Started when the first pandemic confinement hit, this is content that celebrates my past and informs a fresh vision forward. I have a fascination for subcultures, specially those with a close-knit relationship with leftfield and challenging music, so music does take center stage here. Glad if it resonates with you in some way and you discover something new here, in which case you should explore more and support the artists. Moving between London and Porto. Curated by Jorge Sampaio.

Once there was ony Radio. And Radio hits recorded onto Cassettes. And then I started spending more time awake at night and the radio changed. There was Sex Pistols and Joy Division, The Cure and Siouxsie & The Banshees. And then there was The Sound. To call this album special is an understatement. Let's call it seminal. It is for me. In an era where you bought albums by word of mouth and cover art alone this album stuck with me for many reasons. It is still one of the albums I recommend the most to folks when talking about post-punk. Yes, most folks didn't pay attention to the band or the genius that was Adrian Borland. I was living in London when I got the news of his passing on 26 April 1999. It was a sad day. RIP
