This book, organized by João Sardinha e Ricardo Campos, is about music, youth and mobilities. It is a book that seeks to interface between these three themes, having as the connecting element the concept of mobility. Like people, music also travels. Linked to multiple territories and fulfilling diversified functions for groups and individuals, music is capable of being anywhere, at any time, able of fulfilling whatever function a given group or individual wishes to have fulfilled. This book contains a chapter by Paula Guerra e Pedro Quintela, entitled: “From Coimbra to London: To live the punk dream and meet my tribe”. This chapter intends to discuss the importance of these dynamics, namely for the constitution and maintenance of Coimbra’s music scene, found by the emblematic Tédio Boys who, in the 1990’s, took the Coimbra punk abroad, having had the United States as
their place of destination, a mobility that has perpetuated to the present day, particularly in the first decade of this century, through such bands as The Parkinsons.
