Atitude Gira 

They tempt me with violence
They punish me with ideals
And they crush me with an image of my life
that's nothing but unreal
Except on the goddamned slaveship
of failure

When I get my hands on some money
I'll kiss it's green skin
And I'll ask it's dirty face
"Where the hell have you been?"
"I am the fuel that fires the engine
of failure."

(Michael Gira, "Failure" - Álbum White Light from the Mouth of Infinity)

Apocalypse Jukebox - TOP 10 

David Gahan escolhe as 10 canções que gostaria de ouvir uma última vez, estivesse o fim do mundo na eminência de acontecer.

1 - Three Days
Jane’s Addiction
«I first heard this song at a particularly destructive time in my life. (...) the level of destruction in this song still gets me excited.»

2 - Flugufrelsarinn
Sigur Rós
«This must be the most apocalyptic music I’ve ever heard, and the most beautiful. (...) It sounds like it comes from outer space.»

3 - The Desperate Kingdom of Love
P.J. Harvey
«This is like an old Johnny Cash song. I tend to believe everything P.J. Harvey says – she sings with such honesty. I’m drawn to her music, even when it’s pretty hard to listen to. You can hear the damage in her voice.»

4 - It Serves You Right to Suffer
John Lee Hooker
«His voice really speaks to me. He uses it like an instrument. It has so much emotion, and is so affecting that it helps pull me out of myself.»

5 - Hiding All Away
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
«He chuckles at the beginning of this song, which is just perfect. The man’s a genius.»

6 - London Calling
The Clash
«Like a lot of the songs on this list, "London Calling" helped me escape into the realms of fantasy. I’ve had to escape into fantasy for great chunks of my life.»

7 - Moonage Daydream (Live)
David Bowie
«Bowie was the first person who made me want to perform. I like the Ziggy Stardust version, but I much prefer the one from David live.»

8 - Search and Destroy
Iggy & The Stooges
«It's the most revitalising song I’ve ever heard. Iggy is a hero.»

9 - A Man Needs a Maid
Neil Young
«This song really does it for me. We all need a maid in life, don't we? Especially when things get dark.»

10 - God only Knows
The Beach Boys
«On the surface, it sounds so carefree. Listen closely, and it’s pretty fucked up.»

Posta de Escuta Suíça====Nova Iorque 


Foi uma longa viagem, desde os pueris anos dos colégios internos suiços até à grande metrópole. Foram ficando cada vez mais animados, mais sujos e mais impacientes. A melodia faz barulho e corre que nem mel.

#4 A Lisboa de Adolfo 

Rodeando a cidade, descendo as colinas, saindo dos bosques
Eles aproximam-se!...
É a invasão dos veados! Dos veados com fome!
Se és moça solteira e vives sozinha
Corre lesta, sorrateira, a fechar a porta da cozinha!...
É a invasão dos veados! Dos veados com fome!

("Veados com Fome" - Mão Morta, Álbum Vénus em Chamas)
