Love Of An Unknown Soldier

[April 2004]
Lyrics and music by David Rovics
From the album, or song collection, "For the moment"
David Rovics' Official Website


"For a beautiful Salvadoran woman I saw in a photo on the cover of the New York Times. I was sitting in a café in Seattle in November, 1989, while she was trying to overthrow the US-backed fascists in El Salvador. Standing majestically on a rooftop in San Salvador, dressed in fatigues and an AK. Too bad those SAM's got intercepted en route from Nicaragua." -David Rovics.

April, 2005

I had a great show a while back in Olympia, Washington and met Pat Maley there. I was recording a few new songs at his studio to put on the web, and at some point he suggested that I put out my next CD on his label, Yoyo Records. Thinking that to be a great idea, I went about figuring out what I wanted to do about that, and this is the end result.

Four cities were involved... (continua)

Lysistrata's War

Music by Mark D. Williams
Lyrics by David Hamilton

An original Rock Opera by
David Hamilton and Mark D. Williams
Adapted from Aristophanes’ Lysistrata

Official Website

Libretto

Aristophanes' anti-war comedy Lysistrata, written in 411 BC, has female characters, led by the eponymous Lysistrata, barricading the public funds building and withholding consensual sex from their husbands to secure peace and end the Peloponnesian War. In doing so, Lysistrata engages the support of women from Sparta, Boeotia, and Corinth. All of them are at first aghast at the suggestion of withholding sex, but they finally agree and swear an oath to support each other. The woman from Sparta, Lampito, returns home to spread the word there.

The play also addresses the contribution that women could make to society and to policy making, but cannot because their views are ignored: All such questions are considered... (continua)

In The Spirit

"So this song is my first anti-war song. This song is basically about the war and how it sucks and all that kind of stuff, but it's also about keeping a good attitude about how we have to change things and basically, kind of, rebuild our entire country from the ground up. From square one. And trying to keep a good attitude about it, 'cause there's a lot of work to do. But if we stay in a good mood and have a good time doing it then we have a better chance of pulling it off."

How Far Is It From Here To Nuremberg?

[2005]
Halliburton Boardroom Massacre

Here are fifteen songs I wrote between January and July,
2005. I recorded them at Sugar Hill in Houston with John Griffin on the board on the afternoon of July 28th. I guess there's another bunch of songs here which are continuing the ecological theme that was heavily represented in Beyond the Mall (and to one degree or another in all of my other recordings). Some of the songs are definitely inspired by the musical sensibilies of TV Smith ("Crashing Down," "Boardroom," "Before the Oil Wells Run Dry," "Waiting For The Fall"). I don't know if any of these songs approach TV's brilliance at writing stuff with great universality to it, nor whether the melodies are as catchy as his, but in any case, his music has been a focus for my own songwriting over the past couple months.

Apparently, tens of thousands of men from Jordan were volunteering for the Iraqi armed forces, wanting to serve the cause of anti-imperialism.

Luis Posada Carriles è un noto terrorista. Meno noto di Bin Laden ma con un curriculum di tutto rispetto e sicuramente con più esperienza sul campo.

"Men in a War" is about missing a piece of yourself, whether it's a physical piece or a part of your will or spirit.

The man is feeling something he doesn't have, and the woman is not feeling something she has."

Claudio Varalli aveva 17 anni, abitava a Bollate in provincia di Milano, frequentava l’Istituto Tecnico per il Turismo che oggi è intitolato a suo nome ed era un militante del Movimento Lavoratori per il Socialismo.
Giannino Zibecchi aveva 27 anni, abitava a Milano, insegnava educazione fisica alla Uisp ed era un militante del Coordinamento dei Comitati Antifascisti.
Non erano figure eccezionali: erano due ragazzi, divisi da 10 anni d’età, uniti dalla passione politica, sostenuti dalla speranza di migliorare il mondo, protagonisti come migliaia di altri del lungo ’68 italiano. Claudio e Giannino hanno avuto la sfortuna di non riuscire a sopravvivere all’esperienza di quegli anni e noi - compagni ed amici di allora e di sempre - ci auguriamo che raccontando,... (continua)

Avanti popolo [Poiché non vogliamo sfruttati]

Testo di Gualtiero Bertelli
ispirato e sull'aria di "Bandiera Rossa"

Mai e poi mai avremmo pensato di inserire una versione di "Bandiera Rossa" nelle CCG/AWS, un canto che, in una delle sue (numerose) versioni presenta strofe come questa: "E se la Russia ci dà il fucile /Guerra civile, guerra civile/E se la Russia ci dà il fucile/Guerra civile vogliamo far". Mai lo avremmo pensato, finché non ci siamo imbattuti (nella "Musica dell'Altra Italia", come sempre...) in questa bella versione di Gualtiero Bertelli nella quale è presente una strofa così chiaramente contro la guerra, da giustificare appieno il suo inserimento. Ci piacerebbe davvero che questa fosse la versione di "Bandiera Rossa" cantata universalmente...

La versione fu interpretata dal Nuovo Canzoniere Veneto. Riportata da G.Vettori nello storico tascabile della Newton-Compton "Canzoni italiane di protesta 1794-1974", edito nel 1976, fu incisa nell'album "Canti della sinistra di classe" pubblicato dal Manifesto.

Rwanda

(2000)
dall'album "Rancid"

La canzone si riferisce al terribile genocidio ruandese del 1994, una delle tante guerre praticamente dimenticate.

Il genocidio avvenne in un clima di totale indifferenza da parte dell'ONU e di molti paesi occidentali che mandarono i contingenti con l'unico scopo di salvare i propri cittadini. Fra questi spicca la Francia, che non solo non volle fermare la folle barbarie assassina (negli anni precedenti aveva armato e addestrato le FAR), ma anzi la fiancheggiò mandando contingenti a supportare le truppe hutu in ritirata dopo l'arrivo del FPR (tutsi). Ancora oggi, dopo dieci anni dal genocidio, rimangono aperti numerosi interrogativi ai quali forse non verrà mai data risposta.

Wooden Ships

(1969)
dall'album "Volunteers"
anche in "Crosby, Stills & Nash", primo album di Crosby, Stills & Nash (senza Young)



Scritta dal leader dei Jefferson Airplane Paul Kantner assieme a David Crosby e Stephen Stills. Per questo è anche nel repertorio di Crosby, Stills & Nash. Sia CS&N che gli Airplane la eseguirono a Woodstock nel 1969.

In questa canzone il popolo degli oppositori si appresta ad abbandonare il mondo dell'establishment con "navi di legno", la stessa idea di fuga che sarà ripresa ed estesa (verso lo spazio) nel successivo album (firmato Jefferson Starship) Blows Against The Empire.
(adattato da Musica e Memoria)

Le navi di legno possono essere in realtà paragonate a tante Arche che portano via i sopravvissuti a una catastrofe atomica (o comunque a qualche guerra), come spiega bene Piero Scaruffi, per raggiungere un mondo utopico dove si possa vivere in... (continua)

Mau Mau (Amerikon)

da "Blows Against The Empire" (1970)

Brano d'apertura del primo album dei Jefferson Starship, dopo il grande successo di Volunteers degli Airplane.

Così presenta l'album in un interessante articolo il critico Riccardo Bertoncelli (che stavolta non "spara cazzate"...):

da "Jefferson Starship - Blows Against The Empire" di Riccardo Bertoncelli

[Del nucleo originale dei Jefferson Airplane] nel '70 ritroviamo solo Paul Kantner e Grace Slick, all'inizio fra l'altro di una tenera (effimera) storia d'amore. Mentre gli altri si tirano indietro o vanno in tour o fanno vacanza (Jorma e Jack passano settimane in Scandinavia dedicandosi al pattinaggio), i due entrano ai Pacific High Studios e cominciano a stendere bozze per quello che potrebbe essere il nuovo disco dei Jefferson o forse no. Non è ben chiaro se il gruppo sopravviverà e, nel dubbio, Kantner decide di trasformare le idee in un progetto... (continua)
