Marla’s Musical Archive | Bloc Party @ Paradiso

Marla 29/01/2021

Marla’s next episode in her mini-series on legendary gigs that have taken place in Amsterdam and around. This week was everything but silent. We listened to Bloc Party’s 2005 concert promoting their first album Silent Alarm. One hour of great British sounds at the Paradiso and a lot of personal insights into Marla’s connection to the band, as well as interesting background knowledge to one of Bloc Party’s best albums of all times.
