Gala Drop

“How’s he living?
With all of that unforgiving
See him on the dance floor go now
Boy those moves I just don’t know how “

Gala Drop – Drop

DROP (from Gala Drop) from Antonio Contador on Vimeo.

Last summer I took my 17 year old brother and his girlfriend to Lisbon’s John Malkovich owned Lux Frágil to see DJ Harvey. Beyond that sentence there’s a whole thesis on weird waiting to be written. Anyway…for the first few hours Harvey was good but not amazing, running through most of the current releases including about 7 tunes apiece from Justin Vandervolgen and Eric Duncan. It was only when, at around 5am, when my two young charges for the night had retired to some conceptual furniture on the roof terrace that Harvey got really good. When I descended back into Lux’s roomy basement space for the last hour Harvey seemed to be playing Santana. The local crowd were going nuts to a record of gliding guitar solos. As it turns out the record in question is by the Lisbon band Gala Drop. I’ll play it the day my little brother walks into Moustache bar.
