O ALFAIATE LISBOETA

“(…) A nossa indumentária carrega consigo um conjunto de signos e símbolos que, goste-se muito ou pouco, serve de plataforma de comunicação com quem nos cruzamos.” @ O ALFAIATE LISBOETA: O casaco desportivo

Found this post in the middle of a research for my final event at Restart and instantly felt compelled to mention it over here.
Do a favor to yourselves and click on the link after the quote. Brilliantly written, showing a sense of charm and culture not often seen online.

The post was a grabber, and the blog now has my attention…not saying I’m gonna be a close follower (fashion is probably at the bottom of my list of interests lol), but I think at least it’s worth a weekly check-up.

JR #01: NEVER FAIL & PxHxT – Split 7″

Two different bands, the same record, 6 new tracks.

There was no better way to officialy start a record label intended to have no barriers, than with a record that mixes styles, sonorities and messages. NEVER FAIL and PxHxT prove in this record that what matters the most is people, leaving differences on the background and uniting themselves with Juicy to release a threesome record, but with a single idea. Crossover baby.

JUICY RECORDS

Juicy Records begins to leave its mark in 2010. Not to reinvent, nor to divide in worthless categories of genres and aesthetics, but to serve as a platform for projects that transport contents through music.

Music with content is music that transmits something. Values, messages, emotions, stories…all of these have been brought to us over many years by music, and now it’s time to gather some friends and give something back.

It’s official, JUICY RECORDS, my own record label, is out. Check the site for all the relevant info.

You may or may not have heard about it in the last couple of weeks, you may or may not have helped me in some way to put it together, but right now it feels good just to see it take form.

Some people have asked me why am I doing this, why drag my money, my time and my energies on something that can  be a total failure just by looking at the state of things nowadays…my answer: I’m just doing me, I’m just following an old dream and creating something to share with everyone.

All my life I have been inspired by music. Not only by the bands playing on stage, their words, but also by the  people standing on the backstages, working hard to make things happen. I have been on both sides, but most of the time I am just a kid in front of a stage waiting for that burst of sound that makes me feel alive…to all those kids, I bring JUICY RECORDS to life.

It’s kinda my way to say thank-you to hardcore and music in general. It was all a dream…but maybe it is finally coming true.

Ready for another post of stuff-I-find-online-cause-I-really-have-no-time-to-write-decent?

Nahhh, don’t worry, this time I bring you not the usual music videos and artistic discoveries, but some references to news from my fellow bloggers and friends.

Organic Anagram Industries – new site, products and online store!

I’m diggin’ the new hoodies, and the prints look awesome too. Miguel has been busting his ass on this project, and I’m starting my project too so I know the effort put in building something from scratch.
Support if you can, or at least subscribe the mailing list, it’s not one of those annoying ones :).

the.argument – Nuno, the new INDIAna Jones

Follow Nuno, the vocals from the notorious Step Back! on his journey across India…he makes very personal descriptions of the reality down there, always with a good dose of humor and a positive attitude. Outlive!

Vicious Noir – new (small) track online.

Tim, who I interviewed here, has this ongoing experimental musical project full of quality and  diversity.
“Um” is the most recent addition to his myspace, and surprised me a lot, it has a hip-hop touch, different from the previous tracks.

Be on the lookout cause this won’t be the last time you’ll hear about Vicious Noir on this blog ;).

And that’s all for today folks, sorry for the slow rhythm over here.
Maybe with tomorrow’s post you’ll understand why I’ve been so busy lately.

Hope for Haiti

It’s not much, but it’s what I can give for now.

I decided to give to this site firstly cause I saw it on TV the other night, but also mainly due to the fact that they have everything explained in terms of fund distribution and partnerships.
It was very easy to donate, I even payed with paypal, and I felt my money will go to the right place.

Donate here, or just choose another organization like AMI or Unicef, I will try to donate to them also in the upcoming months.
If you don’t have a credit card, a paypal account or any other way to donate online, get in touch with me and I’ll arrange a donation for you, with receipts and everything.

HOPE FOR HAITI NOW
