Well, obviously I have to see this.
Jean-Paul Gaultier (who stopped designing all men’s & women’s ready to wear for couture only) keeps the legend alive by writing, directing and set designing a production that brings us behind the scenes into his world filled with excess, poetry and magic.
From the press release I received: “From his childhood to his early career, from his greatest fashion shows to the wild nights in Le Palace or London, Jean Paul Gaultier shares his journal of the times and pays tribute to those who have inspired him in fi lm (Pedro Almodovar, Luc Besson), music (Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Mylène Farmer) and dance (Régine Chopinot, Angelin Prejlocaj)”. Like a giant party, he designed new clothes and incorporated many of his iconic pieces and collaborated with genius that is Nile Rodgers for a soundtrack filled with disco, funk, pop, rock, new wave and punk.
- Al secondo album "Circostanze" arriviamo nel 2006, dopo 4 anni ininterrotti di tour (e aneddoti da scriverci un libro...), arricchiti dal confronto con band straniere, non solo per aver suonato al Sziget di Budapest ma anche per aver diviso il palco con gruppi americani, francesi, lituani, ucraini e polacchi al Venerelettrica International Female Rock Festival di Perugia.
Non è facile conquistare pubblici lontani e sconosciuti ma è l'unico modo per "sprovincializzare" il proprio approccio alla musica, per aprirsi ad ascolti apparentemente lontani dal proprio background (ma in realtà parte di intrecci e radici inaspettati) e per mettere a fuoco la propria personalità, al riparo da comode evanescenze musicali ("comodo ma come dire poca soddisfazione").
"Circostanze" è l'album del nostro primo contratto discografico, firmato con la Otium Records di Franco Muciaccia, da allora rimasto tra gli amici più cari.
Vinciamo altri 7 festival, in giro dall'Emilia alla Sicilia per un nuovo tour di 42 date, anch'esso completamente autogestito, impreziosito dalle bellissime parole dedicateci da Paola Turci e Ellade Bandini.
I Negazione cantavano: "collezione di attimi per le sensazioni più belle" e certamente molte tra quelle che ruotano attorno a "Circostanze" caratterizzeranno il lavoro per il nostro ventennale.

fThe Cure played Camden's Electric Ballroom on November 19th 1985 for MENCAP, the organisation for the mentally handicapped. Part of the show was broadcast live on BBC 'Whistle Test'. ⠀
A much shorter set than normal for this one-off gig before the start of their European tour.⠀
"This was quite a difficult one to play actually because we'd become used to playing festivals and big places like Wembley and here we were confronted by an audience in such a small place. I felt really nervous for the first time in years."⠀
Robert Smith, Ten Imaginary Years⠀
"THE CURE have been responsible for several of the most turgid evenings in (I daresay) many of our lives. Records with names like "Faith" and "Pornography" spring to mind a ready-reckoning indices of monotony, mist shrouded expanses of opiated sloth. Dull they most certainly were. Therefore, the new quick-witted Cure is welcome and amazing. Robert Smith, daft as brush and dressed like one as usual, told a quite comical joke about bills in between (days) leading his current quintet through a quicksilver survey of many of The Cure's best bits. Lol Tolhurst is now installed as a synthesist while there is a drummer called Boris, who gives the skins some hammer. Simon Gallup, restored bassist, looks like something made of old J-Cloths but fits the bill to a tee. Above all, The Cure seem to be enjoying themselves and pride themselves on their accuracy."⠀

a l̶a̶m̶e̶ ̶a̶n̶d̶ ̶i̶r̶r̶e̶l̶e̶v̶a̶n̶t̶ fun and interesting fact about myself is that music is at the very center of my universe (in case you haven't noticed??) & I have a wonderful, obsolete collection of hand-me-down CDs that I still cherish dearly 🖤🎶 was rearranging some stuff today & decided to snap a picture of a few 💿
