If only we could all take a big field trip and visit all these places ~
Hahaha I like this idea! I nominate David as the tour guide  :D

Why not? ;) We should definitely organize a field trip to those places some time! There's lot of history in those places...

An intense Italian band that I have seen a few times by now is Ufomammut. I heard about them somewhere in 2012 and they remain one of my favorite bands. Especially their 'Oro - albums' I am fond of.
This got me into the band: https://youtu.be/5hzQr4uXsFc

I don't know too many Italian bands or music (unfortunately) but this song from Ars Manifestia is amazing:

And this is really good as well imo:

I am pretty certain I saw an article back in the day about "Cure places" in/around London... probably it was in the official "Cure news" mag (which I'd received from around '96-2000) or maybe it can be found online too. I'll let you know if/when I find anything...

Early on in the year 2016, I went to see an Italian band playing (it was a spontaneous decision; I'd only heard of their show hours before), I only knew their name and a few snippets of music from the internet... It turned out to be one of the best gigs I ever went to! They (Sacri Cuori) played a crazy mix of instrumentals (soundtrack-like), surf music, garage rock, blues, bar jazz and were later joined by vocalist Carla Lippis for a few songs.
Since then, I kept stumbling over them or their 'maestro' (Antonio) again and again (they played with musicians I already liked and so on).

This is a nice catchy "pop song" which should've been a big hit!

MM, I was just gonna say (in reply to dsanchez), that you might end up all alone on an island if you try that... ;)

well...you gotta change that. get surrounded by people who make you a better person (personally, professionally) and keep distance of those who don't. life's already hard and having the wrong people around you will just make it harder.

Well, as I said before, everybody's "damaged" in their own special way.
Of course most sane people will try to keep distance from those who don't treat them well. I try too.

On the other hand, if anyone close needs my help, I will try to help (and I suffered sometimes, e.g. when I borrowed stuff or money and didn't get it back). I don't really care if they "make me a better person" - in the end that's up to me and nobody else.

I remember years ago I knew someone who was always moaning that he had no money and was in debt. When he proudly told a story of how he "threw money out the window" (in my view), of course I reacted angrily. I did not write him out of my life though.
Thus, this guy is still a friend in a way, he now lives in Stuttgart and is in a wheelchair (health problems), but I do visit him from time to time.  :cool
And I think he knows he receives an honest response from me if he asks me anything...

Oh, I do David and I did it all the time. I had my neighbors in mind when I mentioned it.
Some of them died last year surprisingly and relatively young - others are depending from
alcohol and cigarettes and another one (a female) has been "damaged" by a stalking ex-friend.
Good people don't stay forever and letting go was the hardest lesson I must have learned. Family
and school don't teach that. I'm getting older now and if nobody "good" is around, I prefer to be
alone.
