Chapel Hill

[1992]
Nell'album "Dirty"

Nel 1981 a Chapel Hill, nei paraggi dell'Università del Michigan, venne fondata la libreria "Internationalist Books". Il progetto intendeva fornire un luogo d'incontro, di confronto e di controinformazione per tutti coloro che credevano "that we have no country: we do not support mindless patriotic pleas for 'national unity,' nor are we interested in keeping America number one. We support the unity and liberation of oppressed people worldwide and are working toward the day when all oppression and inequality will be removed from the earth." (it.wikipedia). Questo era, nelle sue parole, il pensiero del fondatore dell'"Internationalist Books", Bob Sheldon.

Per tenere in piedi il suo progetto, Bob Sheldon fece per anni i lavori più disparati, poi riuscì a dedicarvisi per intero. A metà degli anni 80 l'"Internationalist Books" fu il motore della campagna contro il... (continua)

Turntables

(2020)
Scritta da George Peters II, Nate “Rocket” Wonder & Janelle Monáe
dalla colonna sonora di All In: The Fight for Democracy, il nuovo documentario di Liz Garbus e Lisa Cortés che racconta la storia della soppressione dei diritti degli elettori delle comunità di colore negli Stati Uniti.

“Turn the tables” è un'espressione inglese che significa prendersi la rivincita, ribaltare la situazione, cominciare una rivoluzione. Come cantava Tracy Chapman, "finally the tables are starting to turn". Ma turntable è anche il piatto del giradischi, su cui suona una base vintage che riporta all'epoca d'oro della musica nera negli anni '70.

«Che rivoluzione sarebbe senza una canzone? Ho iniziato a pensare a chi era in prima linea. Che regalo potrei fare loro? Eccolo il regalo, una canzone che ricordi che i tempi stanno cambiando. Che stiamo facendo progressi, anche mentre affrontiamo eventi... (continua)

Who Do They Think They Are?

[2003]
Lyrics by Cynthia Cockburn
Music by Ros Brown

Cynthia Kay Cockburn, sociologist and peace activist, born 24 July 1934; died last year, 12 September 2019.
In 1993, she was key to establishing WiB in London and was instrumental in sustaining it over decades as an organiser and participant in weekly vigils at the statue of Edith Cavell in Trafalgar Square. Cynthia joined the street choir Raised Voices in 1994. The political choir Raised Voices was another important part of Cynthia’s local political engagement. As well as singing in the choir, she wrote the lyrics to several of the songs that have made up its repertoire.

It’s a Fire

Amanda Palmer & Rhiannon Giddens - 2020
Cover di una canzone dei Portishead - 1994 (dall'album Dummy)


I can't breathe through this mask

Le due cantanti trasformano il pezzo dei Portishead in «un dialogo tra amiche chiuse in uno sgabuzzino che si fanno forza l’una con l’altra e sussurrano: usciremo di qui». È una canzone perfetta per questi strani giorni

C’è una canzone nascosta in Dummy, l’album d’esordio dei Portishead. Non è celebrata quanto i singoli Glory Box o Numb. Anzi, nelle prime stampe europee dell’album, nel 1994, non era nemmeno inclusa nella tracklist. Scritta principalmente dalla cantante Beth Gibbons, parlava di errori e sogni, paura e salvezza. Era suonata con un organo Hammond e aveva un beat stranamente sensuale per il tema del pezzo. Conteneva uno strano passaggio nel ritornello: “Questa vita è una farsa / non riesco a respirare con questa maschera / come una stupida... (continua)

An Emigrant's Daughter

[1998]
Testo di Barry Taylor
Sull'aria dell'antica ballata inglese "The Grenadier and the Lady"
Il testo racconta degli avi dell'autore, che nel 1842 emigrarono in Canada dalla Contea irlandese di Tyrone. La loro figlioletta, la più piccola di quattro bimbi, non sopravvisse alla traversata...
Trovo una bella versione in "Land of my Soul", un album di un gruppo italiano, i "Túatha Dé Danann" (dal nome di un popolo preistorico leggendario che si racconta abbia colonizzato l'Irlanda prima dei Gaeli...)

Album: The Argument

When asked about the meaning of the album's title by Guitar World in a 2001 interview, singer/guitarist Ian MacKaye described it (and the song title from which the album name comes), as "an anti-war manifesto."

MacKaye expanded upon this by stating, "A main point of the song is that I will not agree with war across the board. It also talks about a greater argument: that these giant airplanes are dropping tons of homicidal weaponry, blowing the shit out of everybody, and guys are running around with guns. And that is an argument of colossal scale."

Die Gedanken sind frei

Leon Rosselson's New version
A musical challenge to the antizionism = antisemitism lobby. Based on “Die Gedanken Sind Frei” as sung by Pete Seeger.

“Let’s not mince words. The Labour Party is now the witch-hunting party led by a Zionist puppet. What the Israel lobby tells him to do, he will do. What the Israel lobby tells him to say, he will say. Shouldn’t we worry that the leader of a major parliamentary party in this country is the creature of a foreign power? And not just any foreign power but a criminal state, a racist state, an apartheid state, a state with one of the worst human rights records in the world. The Labour Party has had some dodgy leaders in its time but surely never one so vapid as Sir Keir Starmer.

Brooklyn Bridge

[2002]
Lyrics & music by W. Frederick Stanton AKA Bill Frederick


How the Brooklyn Bridge was built, and the continuing march across it..


“The air is unusually healthy”, noted a visitor, passing through the small village of Brooklyn in 1794. The 100 mostly one-story houses were “chiefly along the shore or scattered without plan”, he noted, and the streets were “bad, heavy, and unpaved, so that the smallest amount of rain makes Brooklyn muddy”.

The village of Brooklyn, directly across the East River from Manhattan, was the funnel through which the food grown on Long Island's rich farmlands passed to New York City. As New York City flourished, so did its nearest neighbor. Rowboats, sailboats, and horse-powered ferries plied the waters of the East River, and speculators and merchants began to buy land along the waterfront. The U.S. Navy opened a shipyard on Wallabout Bay in 1801, and... (continua)

“I was told this story of London dockworker and union activist Harry Constable by my friend Martin Ralph on Thursday night, just after the close of the Woody Guthrie Folk Club..


A great proportion of the British working class emerged from the Second World War determined that they would not allow a “return to the ‘thirties,’ with the poverty and unemployment that this phrase conjured up. In the first two and a half decades after the end of this war, there was a stormy period of strikes and struggles.

There was a desire for big advances in wages and conditions of living and work; an anti-capitalist feeling that was expressed politically by the return of a Labour Government. In mining, engineering and transport, a complacent and settled bureaucracy in the unions attempted to block struggle, and the discontent... (continua)

All That Is Different ....

[1990]
Lyrics by Chris Foster & Leon Rosselson, based on a poem by William Blake
Music by Chris Foster & Leon Rosselson
Album: Intruders [1995]

Presented on Intruders as a coda to provide a positive ending to the album, "All That is Different" was one of two songs originally written for Chris Foster's A Sting in the Tale stage show. Based on a line from William Blake's book, America A Prophesy, the song looks at the world of the future and revolves around a question: does it have to be that way? (Leon set more of Blake's lines to music in the 1960s - the poem, "The Garden of Love" - later recording it for Love Loneliness Laundry (1977).

This song was recorded separately from the rest of the album, with Leon not present (it features just Chris Foster and Sianed Jones). We might therefore speculate that it was originally intended for release as a Chris Foster recording, for whom it was originally written (No Chris Foster release is known to this reviewer).

2020
Album: Shabrang

“Oh My God” is Dutch-Iranian, singer-songwriter Sevdaliza’s first release of 2020. Based on the announcement and explanation of the song that Sevdaliza shared to her Twitter, the song alludes to and reflects on the concurring tensions between the United States and Iran.

This song isn’t the first time that Sevdaliza has used music as a way to convey her message and opinions on cultural tensions between the United States and the Middle Eastern world— releasing the Persian-language single “Bebin” in 2017, as a response to President Donald Trump’s Muslim-directed travel ban, which included Iran among other countries.

Sevdaliza was born in Tehran, Iran and soon after relocated to the Netherlands where she grew up. However, her Iranian past and culture have still held a prominent presence in her music sonically and lyrically.

Album: We Can Make The World Stop

“We are constantly misinformed that power in any society is held by those with money or those who sit in government.
Of course, that's nonsense, as any group of workers who take strike action proves.
In any society the real power – social power – belongs to the people who make things happen. And that's us.
Bosses may own the machinery, but they need us to work it. Governments may give out orders, but they are without power if we do not obey.
We are the powerful, and every time we take strike action, we pose the question "Who governs?"
An awakening of our understanding of the huge amount of power that we hold is the first step to wielding it, and is why I wrote this song.
Dedicated to workers everywhere who refuse to lie down and be treated like dirt..”

On this 1972 album featured the song "The Chicago Conspiracy" (Apple Records # SW 3391) which addressed both the 1968 Chicago demonstrations and the "Chicago Eight" - the narrator listed all eight of the high-profile protesters arrested and charged, including Bobby Seale, which many other songs excluded in favour of the "seven". The song placed blame on the Chicago mayor: "Daley made this place a city of disgrace". The narrator said that the arrests and trial revealed that "we're not free in this society". It encouraged the listener to "kill..fight...never run" and to keep "marching against the great injustice".

Hu Man

segnalata su Stop The War Coalition

YOU man, me man, WE MAN.
Hu Man is an exploration of self and our attachment to identity, especially in this modern age. Hu Man is a war cry from the battlefield of mind, calling to the divine Mother to take this ego, take this head, to remove all these words and man made constructs and take me, take us, back to centre. Back to oneness, forward to unity. In Lak'ech Ala K'in, I am you you are me, is a Mayan saying I encountered during a Ceremony in Mexico and it's stayed with me always. I find it very fitting for the times we find ourselves in, such shifting paradigms.
