Poison Street - New Model Army



New Model Army tomaron el nombre prestado del Ejercito Revolucionario Ingles de Oliver Cromwell (1645)y desde 1980 han evolucionado y han tocado multitud de estilos, desde el post punk al indie rock o desde el gotic rock al Folk, un grupo nacido para crear música con mayúsculas y llenarla de mensajes tan humanitarios como poéticos.
No hacen canciones, sino himnos, a base de post-punk, gothic-rock y folk-rock. Una mezcla explosiva que deriva en “The Hunt”, “Vagabonds” (menudo papelazo tiene aquí el violín), “Green and Grey” o “Poison Street” que hoy coloco aquí, todas unas joyas musicalmente hablando.
En breve iré poniendo perlas de estos grandes de la musica de los 80's.

Letra:

We were singing in the rain
Like we invented singingThere's a light in the
sky
From a million street lights
And we danced all the steps
From all those old time movies
Rolling down the hill
With laughint hearts
In Poison Street the guard the gates
With bitter, bitter tongues
In Poison Street we'll laugh out load
Till the shadow go melt away

And I love you now
Like I love you always ever
Kissing in the dark
Like a couple of Kids
You gave me life
You gave me light and thunder
Like a blind man sees
For the very first time
In Poison Street we'll go cracking
Through the walls that history made for us
In Poison Street we'll spring the traps
And race away
So just a Kick
For this dark damned city of ours
And a kiss
Yeah a kiss for you
And just a drink
A toast to the days to come
Now Poison Street won't break us anymore

We were singing in the rain
Like we wrote that song
There's a light in the sky
From the streetlights all around
You gave me life
You gave me light and thunder
Like a man makes fire
For the very first time
In Poison Street...
