"Our band could be your life. And it was. A book that dives in the wild 90's to reveal de defenitive photo about a the first wave of explosion by band of Leiria, Marinha Grande, Alcobaça or Caldas da Rainha" - Jornal de Leiria
This work resulted from the material collected for the master's thesis of the author. The case study fell on the cultural supplement of Jornal de Leiria (JL), whose research work gave a tremendous joy to do, rediscovering news of the 90s, in a basement with mask and gloves, not only because of the dust, but so as not to damage the specimens handled. Being news of a newspaper, accessible to everyone from the moment they are published, it is certain that they were scattered, and of course by the time of the public domain, for a few years have gone by and all this happened in a time before the massification of the internet, where the digitization is scarce.
The work - simple but very time-consuming - resulted in taking thousands of pictures in short paragraphs or in-depth interviews, reminiscent of a spy in the movies. He then joined the pieces of the puzzle and constructed a narrative in the form of a book.
In this book, among some curiosities, may have here and there a more exhaustive description, but it was precious information and it would be imprudent to lose it (again), and so it has been registered and compiled. This work was not done, and was now more accessible. Several interviews and articles that I wrote to the service of Preguiça Magazine, from January 2013 to December 2016, and more recently for Vice Portugal, among other sources from various authors, also served as sources of information.
The expenses relate to the time of writing and research, pagination, design, proofreading, printing, promotion, PPL commission and shipping charges.
