In this Podcast#2, Paula Guerra talked to António Antunes, known as Tó Trips. Tó Trips was born in Lisbon, in the parish of Castelo, in 1966, and is registered in Benfica, where he lived during his childhood and youth, in a street between Praça de Espanha and Sete Rios. Tó has rock’n’roll incorporated from an early age, much because of Rock Rendez Vous and Johnny Guitar. Tó Trips is clearly one of the most interesting Portuguese musicians of the last decades. He started in the 1980s with Amen Sacristi and participated in Santa Maria Gasolina in Teu Ventre!; in the 1990s, he lived intensely with Lulu Blind; in the 2000s, from the happy meeting with Pedro Gonçalves he created Dead Combo, participated in Ladrões do Tempo and has made constant solo incursions. Talking to Tó Trips means taking a trip to contemporary Portugal with stops in punk/hardcore, no-wave, jazz, Carlos Paredes’ guitar, noise, world music. It is also a journey through the everyday arts to resist the pandemic. As always.
