Gora eusko gudariak!


This blog is currently experiencing some connectivity problems, so the usual tomfoolery is a bit more sporadic than normal. We ask readers to bear with us.

In the meantime, here’s a little number from our Basque friends, who haven’t let the humble art of the protest song die out.

    Okay I’ll bite, what the hell is the song about about other than dead ETA members?

    If I could speak Euskera, I’d tell you. But that’s linguists’ idea of an extreme sport… What I do know is that songs like this abound in Basque nationalist circles, and the lyrics may or may not have anything to do with the video.

    Actually, somewhere I have a double album of Basque punk. Even those bits sung in Spanish are a bit obscure in their references.

    I was just curious, enjoyable song though.
