Magic.

 

 

I can´t really describe the impact these four albums by The The made on me back in the late 80s and early 90s. I know them by heart and yet they are still as good as the first time I heard them. The lyrics, the music, the conceptual ideas and the artworks are truly unique and amazing. #TheThe

I finally did get to see The The live in concert in Stockholm the past weekend after having waited for that moment for 30 years…… #TheThe

Matt Johnson of The The made a film of the Infected album in 1986, which featured a video for each track on the album. The film had been gathering dust for 30 years. The ICA in London screened the film along with a Q&A session with Matt Johnson and Tim Pope and others over three nights in September 2016. This film recounts stories about the making of the film, like when Tim and Matt needed police protection to film in Spanish Harlem and in a brothel in New York. The album Infected was visually, musically and lyrically far ahead of its time and so were the political ideas expressed that still ring true today.
