If you thought that after so many initiatives we could not add the name Juicy to something else, you thought wrong.
Here it is, the Juicy Podcast. The first of many, we expect, but the truth is that this "first" thing comes with some trials and tribulations, after all we are trying some new ground, never explored before by us. After being announced for November, we finally made it happen just in time for Christmas, and we made just like we wanted it: a collaborative project.
With this new project we want to communicate music in a different way, creating an alternative to the depersonalized mass media, and also create a new room for dialog about music. Juicy Podcast will aim to be interactive, dynamic, will have very few pre-established rules, will mutate from episode to episode, and will above all be completely open to ideas from whoever wants to join and collaborate.
But click on the play button or the image above and check it for yourself. Sorry foreign friends, but the main language is Portuguese (but keep posted, cause next episodes we may have international guests).
It is important to mention that in this first episode we had the help of our friend Calisto in choosing the songs, and also another friend, Rafa, in the rubric "Music with Content"

“Death is a binding creature, reminder of what we all have in common.”
Life is a finite line, with moments of light and darkness, of doubt over our choices and certainty about a destination that is constant for all beings.
The choice was made: joining two bands with distinct sonorities on the same theme, the same record, where the duality is vanished on creativity and the binding role is relayed on the music and the concept of the release. And if any doubts remained, the result now comes in vinyl 7” format, with Utopium, promising grindcore band who’s been moving mountains national and internationally, bringing two new tracks and a cover (RIP Kevin Mahoney) for this edition, and Lifedeceiver, bastard children of the blackest hardcore you can find in Portuguese land, finally sharing with the world 3 tracks that have been causing damage in their visceral live sets.
With this split 7”, Juicy ultimately reveals the breadth and diversity of its releases and embraces its dark side for the first time. Emulating the ideological matrix of this record, we’re also collaborating with a label from a different scene in this release, Escaravelho Records, once again with the conviction to unite the underground music and break false barriers and stereotypes.
We will have 40 discs in cream colour, exclusive to Juicy Records.

Yes, we have new records, and from new labels also. Besides brand new releases from Deathwish (some first presses too), we also brought relevant stuff from other labels this time.
So please check our JUICY DISTRO and see if there's something you like there. We are now shipping from the UK, since our brother and Portugal's very own shipping handler PZ is going to Palestine for a few months (all the best to him), but we do promise to keep the shipping cost to the very minimum, and no raises in the overall prices of the records.
If you like the sound, buy the record. It supports not only Juicy but the bands, and their original record labels who put in the effort and serious amounts of money into creating an everlasting object that traps moments and feelings.

A month ago, there was a Northern presentation for our 5th release, the book from Nuno Sousa.
Things were expected to be a bit more organized, more formal maybe...but what no one expected, not even Nuno himself, was to have dozens and dozens of people turning up for our small event.
Was this the final chapter to the adventure, where the boy returns to his childhood village and celebrates amongst his friends and family? Maybe so, maybe not. What we know for sure was that this was a night to remember close to the heart. If the first presentation was cosy and familiar, this later one had nothing to owe in those aspects, and that's just how it was meant to be.
To everyone that turned up, thank you. To everyone that bought the book, whose first edition is now sold-out, thank you. Here are some photos from this evening:
