I #TheClash canta la Guerra Civil amb "Spanish Bombs" #18J #recuperarlamemoria

Ahir vaig piular a Twitter: Mentre uns premien l'accelerador de la democràcia i la republica, d'altres van estirar el fre de mà per estrellar-nos durant 40 anys.

Avui, 75 anys i un dia després de l'"alçament", voldria posar-hi música...

The Clash publicava, l'any 1979, un disc per a la història: London Calling. El disc, un doble elapé, incloïa aquest tema sobre la Guerra Civil espanyola... Spanish Bombs

Spanish Bombs

Spanish songs in Andalucia,
the shooting sites in the days of '39.
Oh, please, leave the vendanna open,
Frederico Lorca is dead and gone,
bullet holes in the cemetery walls,
The black cars of the Guardia Civil,
spanish bombs on the Costa Rica,
I'm flying in a DC 10, tonight

Spanish bombs, yot'quierro y finito
Yote querda, oh mi corazon
Spanish bombs, yo t'quierro y finito
Yo te querda, oh mi corazon

Spanish weeks in my disco casino,
the freedom fighters died upon the hill.
They sang the red flag,
they wore the black one,
but after they died it was mockingbird hill.

Back home the buses went up in flashes,
the Irish tomb was drenched in blood.
Spanish bombs shatter the hotels,
my senorita's rose was nipped in the bud.

The hillsides ring with "Free the people",
or can I hear the echo from the days of '39?
With trenches full of poets,
The ragged army, fixin' bayonets to fight the other line.
Spanish bombs rock the province,
I'm hearing music from another time,
Spanish bombs on the Costa Brava,
I'm flying in on a DC 10 tonight.

Spanish songs in Andalucia, Mandolina, oh ma corazon
Spanish songs in Granada, oh ma corazon.

The Clash

És clar que The Clash ja havia fet una cançó, publicada l'any 1978, sobre la seva guerra civil...

Música per recuperar la memòria...
