In an innovative way, this event will have an impact object that despite the (national and international) cult around it, remains largely to study in an academic context – Facadas na Noite [Stabs At Night], a Portuguese cassettes publisher, located between Porto and Braga, dedicated to ‘radical’ sounds and whose activity mainly took place between late 1980 and mid-next decade.
