Industry

Industry, un disco del secolo scorso, uno di quelli che riesce a commuoverti e farti incazzare allo stesso tempo; gli argomenti sono le vertenze di lavoro nell'acciaieria, i bambini al lavoro nelle miniere di carbone, la desolazione della dissocupazione, il paesaggio che cambia dopo la fine dell'era industriale e ancora picchetti di donne e potenziali operai sabotatori ipnotizzati dalla mostruosa macchina che oramai governa completamente la loro vita. Un disco anche memorabile musicalmente grazie al contributo di Danny Thompson, altro "grande vecchio" del folk inglese.
Flavio Poltronieri
The song of wheels is in my head and mutiny in my hands
The song of wheels is in my head and mutiny in my hands
I'll go down to the dark place and kill it where it stands
Be still, be still

My body sings the mill-song but my hammer takes its choice
My body sings the mill-song but my hammer takes its choice
Oh, joy of peace descend upon me as I stop its voice
Be still, be still

Beauty takes my breath, I see the shining of the steel
The hand of man steered by God to make the wondrous mill
Piston, pulley, shaft and spindle, every spool and reel
And I can't raise my arm to throw my hammer in the wheel
Rules me still, rules me still, rules me still
