Hola!

I was in Hammersmith the 24th april. It was just the day after my 39th birthday. I enjoyed every second of this unbeliveable meeting with my/our youth idols (too young to see them in the eighties). Sometimes life is so kind and easy!

I'm admired of the activity of this site. Thanks.

Home, Alex! Benvingut al forum llavors!!! Jo tambè vaig anar a Hammersmith (i Edinburgh, Glasgow, Bristol), i va èsser fantástic!! Una experiència única!!

Perhaps you know already, there's a bar in Gràcia called "Demodé" (at Mozart 13). The 3 guys who run it are really nice + friendly. They have a band called ASTRADYNE, hahahaha!!!!! Their own music is very eighties but really good!

Bueno, espero que te guste el foro. Hay gente muy MUY maja aquí, muy pacífica, madura e inteligente.

Un saludo,

Isabel

Hi everybody. Thank you for your kindness.
Hoping to learn a lot of things about ultravox and keeping it alive with your nice group.

I like to see vintage merchandising on Ultravox. Is there any place here? I have a set of badges very nostalgic (and not for sale!).

Alex

Hola Isabel,

I know about Astradyne group already. I found them in Myspace! Interesting people!

O sigui que faré una visita aquest bar que em dius, al musical carrer Mozart. Vaig viure uns anys a Gràcia i vaig ser veí d'un lutier, un home sorrut i modest, que es va traslladar a aquest carrer Mozart (sota Rius i Taulet). Espero que algun dia ens hi trobem. Hi ha tant poca gent interessada en Ultravox, aquí!

Àlex

Hola Àlex,

tenim sopar a casa del nostre cap aquesta nit. Viu al costat del C/ Mozart, doncs és possible que hi anem (perdona, no conèc el subjunctiu del verb "anar" àra mateix, jajaja!!) desprès. Ja veurem.

Si hi ets, avisa al Pepe Astradyne, que'm coneix!

O sino, fina un altre!!

Saludos,

Isabel

Hola Isabel,

No hi podia anar. La meva xicota, que és cantant (d'òpera), feia un recital el mateix vespre. Però vull visitar el bar en qüestió i espero que tinguem ocasió de conèixer'ns.

Alex

Hi!

Sorry about the messages not in english with Isabel. I'm not sure that is really correct. Please understand hapiness about talking about Ultravox from Spain, that is somethig very uncommon (not to mention that I have to improve my english).

I promise to send pictures of my memorabilia. I remember that I also have the score of Hymn, with a beautiful Rage in eden cover.

Alex

Wellcome to the forum Alex. I live in Madrid and I also was at Hammersmith gig.

I did not know there was that bar in Barcelona. I usually visit Barcelona because of my job. Next time I will go there.

Tenemos que montar algo ibérico. En el concierto de Londres había unos chicos muy majos de Almería que eran fans de la banda.

Adeu

Hola Seagull!

Yes, I had the impression that the audience in Hammersmith was very international, but I don't find spaniards... Here are you. Fine!

Somebody saw them in Spain in the eigthies? I Have a friend that remembers Ultravox with John Foxx in Canet Mar Festival... But he's not a real fan...


We have to do some spanish meeting someday... and explore this Demode bar with lavaocean and others...

Saludos! (y qué bien encontrar gente de por aquí... y entendereis mi inglés un poco macarrónico)

Hola chicos!!!!!!!!!

Apparently, it is not a problem to post in other languages; Cerise some time ago - if my memory serves me well - even created special threads in German, Italian etc. As long as we don't start insulting each other, it is OK to communicate in one's own language, I guess.

Seagull, tu no serás por casualidad el amigo de Gustavo, no? laugh Es que mi amigo Gustavo en Madrid (de tiempos de The Chameleons, fíjate) tiene un amigo allí que también se fue a Hammersmith. Pues el concierto fue la bomba. Yo no paré de bailar, jajaja!!!

Si, cuando vengas a BCN a ver si quedamos todos! Ya nos dirás algo. Aunque yo este mes imposible.

El Démodé es un bar musical. Los findes está a tope. Tampoco ponen necesariamente a Ultravox. Lo mencionaba simplemente porque los 3 chicos que lo llevan le pusieron el nombre de ASTRADYNE a su grupo. Eso sí que es curioso. smile

Los de Almería no serían Luís (de Málaga) con su hijo José Luis y con Carlos (de Alicante)? Los conocí antes del concierto de Bristol, supermajos!

Bueno, chicos, ya toca playita este finde!

Un abrazo!

No, I don't know any Gustavo who likes Ultravox. Now I live in Madrid but I am from Bilbao, where I grew up and. I missed their concert in San Sebastian in 1984 because I was too young (and I had no money)

It is a pity UV are not going to play at Sónar. What are those guys thinking about (I refer to the organizers)

On the other hand Magazine are going to play in Benicassin (FIB)in July. That´s taste. What happens with UV in the continental Europe?

Alex, I have heard about the concert in Canet Rock festival (Ultravox with John Foxx) I even had a photograph from that concert. I will try to find it .

See you both in Barcelona.

Isabel. The guys from Almería were no the ones you mention. They came to London from Almería that day and it was their first UV concert in their lives.

Nos vemos en Barcelona. A ver si se acerca John Foxx por la península

Abrazos

Magazine reunited also? Great band and Devoto great artist, despite a limited voice.
Send your Canet Rock Photo if you find it!
And see you in Barcelona, some day, I hope!

Bueno chicos, qué pasa, nos vemos o qué??? Que la semana que viene ya tengo el próximo viajecito (Bélgica) y no volveré hasta el 20 de julio.

Estuve en en concierto de Manu Chao el sábado pasado y me ha repuesto las pilas, la verdad. Es que el Manu en directo siempre es una pasada.

OK, ya me diréis algo. Alex, qué pasa, no te envía a BCN tu empresa o qué??? jajaja

Hola Alex!

Veo que no tienes activado en tu perfil la opcion de "PM" (mensaje personal) para quedar. Si quieres, enviame un correo a [apodo]1967 arroba yahoo punto co punto uk, asi ya nos podemos de acuerdo.

Esta semana me voy a UK por trabajo, pero la semana que viene, si te apetece, podriamos quedar el miercoles por ejemplo. En las terracitas de Rius i Taulet para empezar. Que te parece? Que se apunte tu novia tambien, no?

Saludos!!

Isabel
