THE UNQUIET is a Modern Rock Duo from Oporto, Portugal, the Duo consists of
Lyricist and Singer Filipe Costa, and the guitar player Nuno Carvalho taking care of all
the Guitar and Bass.
THE UNQUIET came together in the beginning of 2019 when Nuno decided to take a new artistic
endeavor, and found Filipe, a young and talented Alternative Rock Singer.
They’ve been around the Portuguese Music scene with Several Projects. Since the ideas for new compositions came together in a very natural way, they headed to the Acclaimed Rec’n’Roll Studio, with the Producer and Drummer Luís Barros (Tarantula, Barros, Secrecy) to record their Debut Single “Against the World“.
I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot!
My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!'
The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;)
Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
