Unlike what the 1990’s music trends and industry dictatorship tried to establish, Rock n Roll doesn’t have to be self-pitiful, innocent and pale.
After years of stage and studio hard work building a proudly ruined reputation – gathered on renowned acts within the Portuguese scene like Dawnrider, Divine Lust or Attick Demons – J.P. “WildHearted” Costanza, Rick Rivotti and Tony “Rattlesnake” Misfortune eventually clashed with each others and decided to team-up. Under AFFÄIRE moniker they’re fulfilling an urge remaining since teenage days, coming up with the band that Portugal owes to the world since the 80’s.
By late 2011, the debut single “Born Too Late” was released in 7” vinyl format, limited to 300 handnumbered copies. Short after that, Filipe “Rooster” Cascata is announced as AFFÄIRE singer.
Four restless characters driven from 70’s Punk Rock street decadence, fuelled by NWOBHM rush, finally crashing on the Sunset Strip glamour & sleaziness.
AFFÄIRE was born too late and proudly raises their middle-fingers to the music trends and to whatever the next-big-thing is. No ‘nu’! No ‘alternative’! No shame!
