I Fought The Law

The red strike the blues

Esto son tres curritos británicos que, a primeros de los 80, les da por montarse su grupo y contar historias de la calle, de sus trabajos, de la realidad. Nacen The Redskins. Con sus Harringtons, su pelo cortito, y su amor por la música negra, golpearon las listas británicas. Conciertos por los mineros británicos en huelga. 28 de noviembre 1983, la Revolución empezará en el Hammersmith de Londres. I'm not in love with Margaret Thatcher. ¿Cómo que la sociedad no existe? Cuando cientos de chavales cockney de los barrios de londres se unen por algo más que no sea la bebida, el fútbol y leer The Sun, se demuestra que Maggie no es que se equivoque. Lo que pretende difundir la inhumanidad, el individualismo, el pisar cabezas, el capitalismo salvaje y sin mano invisible. Pobre Adam Smith, al lado de esta queda como un peligroso utopista.
Neither Washington es, usando el tópico manidísimo, un disco redondo. Militancia y danzas de guerra a ritmo de soul, pop y rock. El no querer ser engullidos por el sistema les llevó a su fin. Les rompieron la cabeza. Pero sus ideas no. La Internacional del Rock no ha muerto.

KEEP ON KEEPIN' ON

I ain't found what I'm looking for
I ain't found what I'm looking for now
But I've found something
And I'm going to change em

Keep on keepin' on yeah
'Till the fight is won
Keep on keepin' on yeah
'Till the fight is won
Alright

Can't remember such a bitter time
The Boss says jump! The workers fall in line
I'm not down, but I'm feeling low
The whip us into line
With the threat of the dole

Time & time when the workers rise
The fightback's stabbed by a neat backstab
& the papers lies
Leaders lead us into blind retreat
One by one we take the money
Ten by ten we face defeat

Keep on keepin' on yeah
'Till the fight is won
Keep on keepin' on yeah
'Till the fight is won
Alright

The bosses make us pay for their crisis
They blame us for daring to challenge things
Keep on keepin' on now
Keep fighting daring yeah yeah yeah
'Till the fightback begins

I ain’t won what I’m fighting for
Full-timers backslide to the cries of sell out!
We've got to get the reins in our hands ourselves
Stand firm! Hold tight! And fight!

The bosses, they hit
While we're taking it
In turns to spit
Divide & lose now aaarrhhhhhhhhh!
No point in fighting anyway (no point)
If we don't win the day (hold tight)
No point if we don't shoot
The bastards afterwards

Keep on keepin' on yeah
'Till the fight is won
Keep on keepin' on yeah
'Till the fight is won
Alright

It is better
To die on our feet
Than to live on our knees
If we fight as one
Then the fight is won
Til that day we’ll keep keeping on yeah

Keep on keepin' on yeah
'Till the fight is won
Keep on keepin' on yeah
'Till the fight is won
Alright

Keep on keepin' on oh yeah!
K-e-e-p I'm keepin' on yeah!
Like a red machine
We gotta keep a keep a stay out
Maybe 5 or even 6 months yeah
7, 8, 9, 10 and if it takes a year
We got to last a year

Me encanta leerte, pequeño. Pones de manifiesto mi ignorancia, incultura y falta de léxico. Qué bonito es tocar de pies en el suelo!!!
