ashes to ashes

 «Concerts are the real thing. There isn't a more personal, intimate and intense experience. Words don’t make them justice, not even pictures, movies or tapes. It’s all in your mind, in that moment. What we want with this blog is not to bring you back to the venue or take you there. The live audio recordings that we will post here are supposed to be ashes of your memory, stolen fragments from that feeling that you can never experience again. We will also post mixtapes, photos, random stuff. Everything we love and we're into. Don’t expect long texts. This is mostly a place for sharing and that's what music was and is all about.»

As palavras não são minhas, mas eu própria não teria dito melhor. São sim da Charlie e do João, progenitores do Ashtapes, um novo blogue dedicado essencialmente, e como já terão percebido, à perpetuação desse hábito tão salutar e algo nostálgico (que é feito do saudoso MiniDisc?...) que é a gravação áudio amadora - e subsequente partilha - de concertos.
Visitem-no em ashtapes.blogspot.com. Com certeza irão encontrar alguma coisa do vosso agrado.
