20-N: A Weekend in Madrid

So much to say, so little time and ridiculously late is still better than never, so heres a very superficial roundup, mainly in pictures, of our all expenses paid weekend in Madrid (thanks again to the Coordinadora Antifascista de Madrid).

-First evening: Met with the guitarist of the glorious „Guardia Negra,“ who I hadnt seen in about 5 years. Ate mushrooms and meat at some incredible bar. Never paid so much for so little food…and been so happy about it.

-Speaking of Food: So much of it, all of it so good. Ribs with honey barbecue sauce, paella, flan, tortilla, mushrooms, you name it…we ate it.

-The presentation/discussion with comrades from Rome, Moscow, and Göttingen (held by the ALI folk present) was interesting and successful. Well over 100 people in attendance, about three hours of presentation, and more than one hour of questions and discussion.

After the seriousness, the stupidity. We went to the „Rolling Stones Rock Bar,“ which gave my little Argentine rocker heart neverending joy (I even stole myself the menu). Discovery of the evening: Italians look at a beer…and the singing starts (annoyingly…it never ends).

-Saturday was spent preparing for the demonstration in the evening. We spent the day in the „La Traba“ squat. Some artistic impressions:

The Class War Kids, „Reflection! Rage! Rebellion!“ CD (FFM027) Out Now!

„Reflection! Rage! Rebellion“ is The Class War Kid`s debut album for Fire and Flames Music. Straight out of Newfoundland (Canada), the Kids deal in, as they put it “über-catchy, melodic, politically charged, socially-conscious, activist posi-punk-pop.”

“Reflection! Rage! Rebellion!” is 14 tracks of riotous and raucous rebel music, it`s a collection of seditious and subversive sing-a-longs. These are songs of anger and songs of joy, songs of defiance and songs of dissent. It`s mood music for the Movement and the soundtrack to the Struggle. It`s for those on the blockades, the barricades, the front-lines and the picket lines.

“Reflection! Rage! Rebellion!!” is a matchless mix of music and message. The songs are upbeat and infectious punk rock rallying cries; the lyrics are insightful and inciteful calls to action.
Rock the Boat, Rock the System, Rock the Dance Floor!
