Spanish bombs.. yo te quiero infinito.. !!

The Clash payed a great homage to the victims of the terrible Spanish Civil War...

and The Clash were not a demagogic band ..

Joe Strummer was trying to bring into attention some injustices of the past and the present..

They were the only ones who ever talked about this terrible episode..

The lyrics remember Federico Garcia Lorca, the late poet shot and killed by Nationalist militia on 19 August 1936.

World War II would began shortly after...

George Orwell who participated in the war as a volunteer would write "Homage to Catalonia" which is another book I yet have to read...
