    Fri 5 Oct – The Fixx
    In all those years that I know The Fixx, they only played the Netherlands once and that concert I never visited. So I was very eager to see them on this tour, and I can tell you I certainly was not disappointed.

    It seems to become a trend to play several sets during an evening. At half past eight the band opened with Deeper And Deeper and from the start the atmosphere and enthusiasm was there, both in the band and in the audience, to turn this evening into a very special one. The band played tide and inspired, and the setlist was well chosen making every number a highlight. Cy Curnin sang very good, Jamie West-Oram's guitar playing was inspiring, the bass of Dan Brown was tight and his playing inimitable. Rupert Greenall conjured the most beautiful sounds from his synthesizers and Adam Wood played tight as well.

    For sure the audience was aware that this concert wasn't going to be a trip down memorylane. With the new album Beautiful Friction out for just over a month…
  • 20 Melhores Músicas de 2010...

    Ah, 2010... 2010 que está indo e 2011 que está chegando. Isto posto, resolvi agrupar algumas das melhores canções que, particularmente, gostei nesses 300 e poucos dias. Os gêneros são diversos, desde o indie/rock até o eletro/pop, com leves incrementos dances intercalados pelo pouco presente, mas ainda assim marcante rock. Esse ano optei por escutar artistas naturalmente, sem a influenciável interferência de revistas digitais ou revisões pelo mundo. O resultado foi a maciça presença de músicos pop, tais como Keane, Kylie Minogue e até mesmo Katy Perry, contrastados por outros indies como Vampire Weekend, Arcade Fire e Delphic. Além disso, esse ano foi relativamente mais autêntico e divertido por parte deste que aqui escreve, fato que certamente conotou muitas das preferências expostas a seguir.

    Embora eu tenha em mente preparar o TOP20 Álbuns de 2010 em uma futura postagem…

    Veronika (1996: Original Language, 2004: English)
    2003 Adaybeforetomorrow (Original language version only)

    2) Speaking of this "unusual phanomenon", here's a Slovenian band:
    Siddharta 2003 Rh- (2003 original language)
    Siddharta 2006 Petrolea

    3) Rare Finish bands:
    Shake:
    2005 Shake EP
    2005 Remember EP
    (saw them live and want it as a memory, maybe i should wait for their album, i don't know)

    Lemonator:
    2004 Yesterday Was Good
    2000 The Waltz
    1998 Maison Rilax
