CHUMBAWAMBA - still fighting the fences-live @ vrankrijk squat,amsterdam-the netherlands february 10th,1987 (U.K.)

painting from the glory days of Vrankrijk by Patries van Elsen

just found her website,GREAT art!!!! & more go check it out

03-tired of mild
04-come on baby
06-Mr. Hesseltine
07-angry words
08-next question
09-on the day the nazi died
12-slag aid
14-the history of rock 'n' roll

We're told that after the war
The nazi's vanished without a trace
But the italians (not only italians....) are fascist
Still dreaming of a master race

The history books they tell
of their defeat at '45
But they all came out the woodwork
On the day the nazi died

They saw the prisoner at Spandau
was a symbol of defeat
Whilst Hess remained imprisoned
And the fascists,they were beat

So the promise of an aryan world would never materialize
So why did they all come out the woodwork
On the day the nazi died

The world is riddled with maggots
The maggots are getting fat
They're making a tasty meal of all
The bosses and bureaucrats

They're taking over the boardrooms
And they are fat and full of pride
And they all came out the woodwork
On the day the nazi died

So if you meet with these historians
I'll tell you what to say
Tell em that the nazi's never really went away

They are out there,burning houses down
And peddling rascist lies

And we'll never rest again...
Till every nazi dies....

Not really what you would expect on here musicwise...,but this was on the B side of the DONA NOBIS PACEM/CHUMBAWAMBA live split tape released by the YURA Collective in the late 80's
promised to cut up the one track,took me awhile (10 hours...yeah sucks,but when your half way done quitting is no option...so it was a long night yesterday.
And im not familair with the sound of chumbawamba so only raised volume in the songs,vocal parts were really low in some tracks...splitted channels,and than equalized volume for all songs...so its louder!
this grew on me while working on it,first time i really hated it,boring ass stuff lol...but it had some nice moments...
but after awhile,i started to like it,the sound got carried by the bass/female vocalist (Petra?)
punk/new wave stuff  with good lyrics
and when playing "next question" i have to shake my booty
come on baby too,great songs!
nazi/nicaraqua are a capella,really nicely done,good lyrics are all you need...
but i wont annoy you any longer

here ya goooo
