“à queima roupa” (ou segunda feira dos infernos)…

“Point Blank”

Do you still say your prayers little darlin’ do you go to bed at night
Prayin’ that tomorrow, everything will be alright
But tomorrow’s fall in number in number one by one
You wake up and you’re dying you don’t even know what fromWell they shot you point blank you been shot in the back
Baby point blank you been fooled this time little girl that’s a fact
Right between the eyes baby, point blank right between the pretty lies that they tell
Little girl you fell

You grew up where young girls they grow up fast
You took what you were handed and left behind what was asked
but what they asked baby wasn’t right
you didn’t have to live that life,
I was gonna be your Romeo you were gonna be my Juliet
These days you don’t wait on Romeo’s you wait on that welfare check
and on all the pretty things that you can’t ever have and on all the promises

That always end up point blank, shot between the eyes
Point blank like little white lies you tell to ease the pain
You’re walkin’ in the sights, girl of point blank
and it’s one false move and baby the lights go out

Once I dreamed we were together again baby you and me
Back home in those old clubs the way we used to be
We were standin’ at the bar it was hard to hear
The band was playin’ loud and you were shoutin’ somethin’ in my ear
You pulled my jacket off and as the drummer counted four
You grabbed my hand and pulled me out on the floor
You just stood there and held me, then you started dancin’ slow
And as I pulled you tighter I swore I’d never let you go

Well I saw you last night down on the avenue
Your face was in the shadows but I knew that it was you
You were standin’ in the doorway out of the rain
You didn’t answer when I called out your name
You just turned, and then you looked away like just another stranger waitin’ to get blown away

Point blank, right between the eyes
Point blank, right between the pretty lies you fell
Point blank, shot straight through the heart,
Yea point blank, you’ve been twisted up till you’ve become just another part of it
Point blank, you’re walkin’ in the sights,
Point blank, livin’ one false move just one false move away
Point blank, they caught you in their sights
Point blank, did you forget how to love, girl, did you forget how to fight.
Point blank they must have shot you in the head
Cause point blank, bang bang baby you’re dead.

white men in hammersmith palais…

MAM, monumento d’aTRIPA, é um fissuradaço aço aço em the who… daqueles que residem, há anos, no fundo da piscina de pete-roger-keith-john… pois bem, ontem, a peça mandou pra gente (sem maiores explicações) estas fotos onde aparecem pete townshend, bruce springsteen e o U2…

u2.2

u2.1

sentiu a tchurma? os cornos de serial killer de pete, à direita? o de óculos nas duas fotos é paul mcguinness, “dono” do U2.

como eu não conhecia as imagens, bateu uma vibe tipo: “caramba, isso aí é deve ser num show do U2 já que boninho tá todo suado enquanto bruce e pete estão secos… e as fuças de todos eles são as mesmas de quando a xeretinha registrou U2, bruce e pete (solo), em maio/junho1981, em londres…

U2doisbruce.detapete2

no que caiu a ficha deles todos estarem juntos na mesma época, na mesma cidade, dei uma pesquisada na web… e apareceu a informação, num diário do U2: “pete townshend e bruce springsteen estiveram no camarim do U2 no show que aconteceu no hammersmith palais, em londres, no dia 9 de junho de 1981”.

e fui confirmar o dia em que eu havia testemunhado os irlandeses no hammersmith palais… BINGO: dia 9junho1981

HAHAHA… ou seja, estávamos todos juntos sob o mesmo teto do santuário hammersmith palais, numa terça feira inesquecível… ainda mais agora com essa informação inútil mas que nos mantém de pé… obrigadão, MAM!

o escambo (ou bruuuuuuuuuuuuuce)…

fernandão veio de BH seco pra colocar as garrinhas na fotoca que xerê fez de bruce no lançamento do disco “the river”, em londres/1980… mas, segundo as regras do escambo internacional, deveria trazer ao rio algo tão inoxidável quanto. sob as asas de nosso ídolo chegou a super caixa “the ties that bind (the river collection)” com quatro cds + três dvds + livro cascudaço. segura o momento…
