The Alan Parsons Project’s darkest secret

Written on the 13th of April, 2015 If you thought I was done writing about The Alan Parsons Project, you were dead wrong. I still haven’t written about their darkest secret. It was around 1979 and the band and Arista Records were having some trouble in reaching a contractual agreement. Parsons and Woolfson wanted a … Continue reading The Alan Parsons Project’s darkest secret



Written on the 23rd of March, 2015 Busy life, no time, short post. I know I’ve been saying the same thing for the last four months, but last year I had way too much free time so I could spend a lot of time writing. Let me stress again, last year. Anyway, this post is about a … Continue reading Sodade

The Spanish Sugar Man

Written on the 13th of March, 2015 This time I’m not really going to write about a band or artist I love; this post is more about a man who was... more successful than he thought at first. Let’s face it, I’m not even a fan of the artist, but I think many of you … Continue reading The Spanish Sugar Man

This should be a serious dissertation about surrealist poetry, but instead I’ll be saying how I liked this album when my father played it in the car fifteen years ago. However, some people should find this interesting. People … Continue reading Poetas en Nueva York: when surrealist poetry becomes music


Dire Straits (II): so good, so short

Written on the 24th of January, 2015 Mark Knopfler didn’t waste time after Communiqué, and Making Movies, the band’s third album, was ready only months after their sophomore effort. His brother Dave left the band before finishing the album and, although most of his guitar parts were ready, Mark re-recorded them. The sound is more mature than … Continue reading Dire Straits (II): so good, so short


Simon & Garfunkel (II): from disbandment to success

I’ve been itching for more and more Simon & Garfunkel lately, so I suppose it’s time to back to them, after writing about their debut album a two or three months ago. Although Wednesday Morning, 3 AM was a lovely bunch of songs, the duo were not successful, and Paul Simon went to England, where he … Continue reading Simon & Garfunkel (II): from disbandment to success
