Tom Zé - Gloria

Tom Zé - Gloria

I once found myself in Hackney DJing Brazilian tunes for a wedding for a lovely bunch of young Brazilian poets. They plied me with two bottles of red wine and were such great fun. It was only by the end of the end of the evening that I realized I was the oldest person there by some considerable distance when I let on I had not been in that part of Hackney for over ten years.

Every time I go back to Hackney I have barely remembered flashbacks of buildings and people I knew there. It was a big chunk of my life a long time ago.

Tom Ze I used to play this track lots. He is probably one of the few human beings ever to have got away with featuring an anus on an album cover. Not this album.
