In the mid-1980s, Porto began to open to the cultural, musical, and aesthetic change announced by (post)-modernism. Resistance – and the search for the new – also began to make itself felt through radio programmes, fanzines, concerts, and bulletins. Important was the motto ‘for the right to difference’. In these movements, besides some musicians, certain authors/publishers stood out. António da Silva Oliveira (A. Dasilva O., 1958) was a central figure. He published, assisted in publishing, and promoted projects in the most diverse areas of cultural intervention. Through A. Dasilva O.’s underground ‘cursed’ trajectory, we will trace a portrait of the Portuguese society in its transition to contemporaneity where the arts, music and their subversions played a central role.

Keywords: Porto, 1980s, underground, resistance.
