It came on the radio in the van yesterday as I was waiting to go in to physio, and perked me up a bit. My early teen years were heavily invested in the little 6 transistor radio.

One of the best bands ever. Saw the Damned at the Palladium - Night of a Thousand Vampires just before we moved to the Philippines. What a fantastic night

One of my favourite singers in one oof my favourite places in Portugal.

Ana Moura shot the video for "Andorinhas" (Swallows) in Olhão, in the Algarve............... the "cubist city".
The Portuguese love to see swallows, even though they cause havoc, building their nests on any overhang.

The very burka-like dress she wears is a copy of the "Bioco", which was the common dress for the fishermen's wives until it was banned 100 years ago.

SWALLOWS
I spend my days
In long queues
In Villages, Towns and Cities.
Swallows are the queens
Flying the lines of freedom

I want to lift my feet up off the ground,
I want to fly away from here
Leave on an aeroplane
And only return someday!
I'll put my suitcase in the hold
To savour the Springtime
In a standby for the season.

One day a swallow said
"Girl, the world is turning,
Use the wind to your advantage.
Life tells lies,
But the sun warns you before it sets".

I want to lift my feet up off the ground,
I want to fly away from here
Leave on an aeroplane
And only return someday!
I'll put my suitcase in the hold
To savour the Springtime
In a standby for the season.

My mother always said
"Spread your wings.
Turn away,
Be strong, head for the sea,
Climb slopes, take a bet
On luck, not on chance".
