Partigiano Hans

Chanson italienne - Partigiano Hans - Popinga

Hans Amoser était un soldat parachutiste autrichien, enrôlé dans l'armée nazie qui à un certain moment déserte, mais ne fuit pas. En effet, il passe de l'autre côté, du côté de ceux qui combattent le nazisme. Il se range aux côtés des partisans et des alliés anglo-américains pour ne pas laisser tomber le monde, son idée de monde, dans de mauvaises mains. Hans trahit son pays, il l'aide à se libérer de ce qu'il pense être le mal. Pour cela, nous avons choisi son point de vue pour notre chanson : celui qui lutte pour la liberté doit dépasser l'idée de patrie comme nation et se mettre au service de tous pour que le monde soit plus juste et civilisé, car c'est seulement dans ce contexte qu'on peut être vraiment libres.

Venable

[2010]
Lyrics by Larry Ludwick
Music by Jon Bushaway

"This is all true. Nobody is protected, not even myself. A part of 'the dead company' project.."

"This is my response to wonderful review by Andreas of The Frankfurt Dialog Company which pretty much summarizes the story behind the song:

Thanks Andreas... I hope you don't mind, but I would always submit something like this to you because I know you will listen to and understand the lyric. Yes it is hard and especially because it is a perfectly true story. Every detail is as it happened to me and Venable.

The only thing that maybe you misinterpreted is the part about what happened to me when Venable went off to the war... because actually I enlisted... I enlisted for my own reasons and not because I had any thought of the war, it was just that my own life was in a shambles. But I did not want this song to be as much about me but more... (Continues)

Ho visto un re

Mi spiace contraddire l'amico Claudio Cormio, ma la canzone c'era anche nella prima versione di Ci ragiono e canto. Allora era cantata da Ivan Della Mea e da uno del gruppo dei Piadena, credo Amedeo Merli. A questo proposito ne ho parlato un Bruno Fontanella, uno dei protagonisti dello spettacolo, proprio all'ultima festa a casa del Miciu a Pontirolo perché ricordavo la canzone, ma non esattamente da chi era cantata. Per controllare basterebbe ascoltare i nastri dello spettacolo depositati all'Istituto Ernesto De Martino di Sesto Fiorentino.

The Eton Rifles

Album: "Setting Sons" (1979)

"The Eton Rifles" as such, do not exist: the cadet corps of Eton College is the Eton College Officer Training Corps[2], Eton being a famous English public school in Berkshire that is regarded as the epitome of Britain's privileged 'elite'. The song itself recounts the difficulties faced by the unemployed and lower paid working class in protesting against a system loaded against them.

The song recounts a street battle Paul Weller had read about in the newspapers concerning elements of a Right To Work march going through Slough in 1978 breaking off to attack pupils from Eton College who had been jeering the lunchtime marchers (hence Hello, Hooray, an extremist scrape with the Eton Rifles), rashly thinking that a bunch of 'posh schoolboys' would be an easy target: only for the outnumbered but far fitter college pupils to give them a beating. As the lyric put it:... (Continues)

This Losing Game

[2004]
Lyrics & Music by Tracy Jane Comer
Album: Quietly There

An anti-war song, written on Memorial Day 2004… "I was pondering both Memorial Day and Father's Day, so close together...
…and thinking of all the families that have to be apart now because of the war". -Tracy J. Comer.


"Tracy Jane Comer's song "This Losing Game" is a thoughtful, well-produced and haunting anti-war song, worthy of the great Joan Baez or Joni Mitchell. Come to think of it, Tracy Jane’s voice is just as powerful and clear as those ladies as well. This is a wonderful work and worthy of a good listen. -International Acoustic Music Awards, January 2005-

Exit Strategy

Exit Strategy ou La retraite victorieuse

Chanson française – Exit Strategy ou La retraite victorieuse – Marco Valdo M.I. – 2012

D'habitude, je le sais bien, Lucien l'âne mon ami, j'ai toujours l'air de me traîner dans le temps et d'avoir un regard sur le passé. D'abord, c'est vrai... Je scrute le passé, mais pour comprendre et le passé et le présent. Ce dernier découlant du précédent... Il y a dans tout ça, ce qu'on appelle le paradoxe temporel. Je te l'explique ou je te le rappelle. Le passé n'est plus, le futur n'est pas encore et le présent est déjà passé au moment où j'en parle ; bref, il n'est nulle part et pourtant, c'est lui qui fait les deux autres et toutes nos existences. En fait, on est dans un présent continu qui s'appelle la vie... Elle a toujours un début et toujours une fin. Je vois à ton œil noir fluorescent que tu te demandes où donc je vais pouvoir encore t'emmener...

Just a Few Questions

[2002]
Lyrics & Music by Evan Herzoff
Album: Disillusioning [2010]

A song about the legitimate questions rarely heard in mainstream media about all 9/11s. There was one in 1973 in Chile, one in 1988 in Haiti and more, and the song reflects on the war crimes and terror that always seem to follow these 9/11 tragedies..

"I wrote this song originally in 2002 and then revised it in 2009. The song was inspired by journalists like Greg Palast, Amy Goodman, John Pilger and Robert Fisk, as well as the documentary filmmaker Michael Moore, all of whom asked tough questions and did exhaustive investigations into not only 9/11 but the state terrorism that followed.

It is all too often we hear only about our own 9/11, however there were many 9/11s. There was 9/11/88 in Haiti, 9/11/90 in Guatemala, and 9/11/73 in Chile. In all of these the US spy agencies' allies in those countries committed atrocities,... (Continues)

To Afghan War Escalation We Say NO

"Pictures and footage, in this video, are all from my camera and they are from various anti-war demonstrations in recent months, held in Denver, Colorado in 2009. Some pictures are from an anti-war demonstration in 2005 (black & white).

The music is a little homemade improvised piece I call "Jamming with myself". To record the rhythm and lead guitar I actually placed my camera, switched to the audio feature, about a foot in front of my little practice amp. For the lead guitar wah sound I ran the signal through a Cry Baby wah pedal. Then I smoothed out the sound using the processing software on my laptop, added a little compression and reverb, then I composed the drums and bass using MIDI software instruments".

Warrior

‎[1989]‎
Album “9”‎



"That's precisely how I see myself - fighting off, instead of the U.S. Cavalry, boredom and ‎oppression.” […] “I'm making my case quite clear that this is my land and I'm not gonna surrender ‎it easily. I'm sick of damn big businesses just burning up everything, destroying the food, ‎destroying the sea, polluting the air. You know, I've got an actual birthright to these things - I'm ‎damned if I'm gonna surrender it lightly." (John Lydon in due interviste rilasciate su BAM e MTV ‎nel 1989)‎

Rise

‎[1986]‎
Album “Album” (!)‎

La più famosa canzone dei PiL aveva originariamente come sottotitolo “South African Song” ‎perché il testo traeva spunto dall’oppressione dellla maggioranza nera nel Sudafrica dell’apartheid ‎per trasferirsi poi alla realtà quotidiana nella “perfida Albione” dell’epoca.‎

‎“I read this manual on South African interrogation techniques, and 'Rise' is quotes from some of the ‎victims. I put them together because I thought it fitted in aptly with my own feelings about daily ‎existence.” (da un’intervista a John Lydon pubblicata su “Smash Hits” del febbraio 1986)‎

Il fatto che la famosa, delirante clip del brano con questo significato non c’entri pressochè nulla, ‎non vuol dire niente… E’ il punk (anche se post-), bellezza!‎
