Hear Me Now: Porno Para Ricardo Perform A Love Song to the Castros

"The Most Famous Band in the World for Not Playing" that's Porno Para Ricardo, the dissident punk rockers from Cuba. Led by the eccentric Gorki Aguila, the band has essentially made a career out of creating music to irritate the Castro regime and because of their efforts, it's become harder and harder to actually hear them play anything, anywhere.But luckily, Gorki and the band's guitarist, Ciro Diaz, have been hanging out in Mexico City lately. And we were lucky enough to coax them into performing a song for Fusion's Hear Me Now series. Click on the video above to check out Gorki and Ciro playing one of their more recent critiques of the Castros, "Los Dinosaurios," featuring the bands mix of humor and caustic complaint.In case your punk rock Spanish is not up to snuff, here's an idea of they're saying:Todos creemos que no existen los dinosauriosWe all think that dinosaurs don't exist.Que se extinguieron hace millones de aosThat they became extinct millions of years ago.Pero en esta Isla estn acabandoBut on this island they are still runningEchan races y estn reventandoTaking root and bursting openComen mucha carne y estn reflexionando They eat a lot of meat and are pondering.Darwin lo dijo que de los monos somos hijos Darwin told us that monkeys are our childrenPero a los dinosaurios no les gusta ese estrbillo But to the dinosaurs don't like the chorusLa ciencia la inventaron en reuniones del partidoThe science invented in party meetingsSon nuestros padres y estn gobernandoThey are our parents and they are rulingEs una teora que todava estn probando It's a theory they are still testing.La evolucin que est involucionandoThe evolution that is devolving.Tirano tirano tiranosaurioTyrant tyrant tyranosaurusNo hay mal que dure cien aosThere is no evil that last 100 yearsNi cuerpo que resista el engaoNor is there a http://Aurora-Monroe.blogtur.com - Aurora Monroe - body that can resist cheatingGorki and Ciro are in town rehearsing and gearing up for a sort of European tour. In July, the band is expecting to reunite all of their members for shows in Warsaw and then continuing on to Prague, Barcelona and Madrid. That is if the Castros give travel permission to the two remaining members and if they can raise enough money for the plane tickets, neither of which is a given.If your interested in hearing more or helping them out with a few dollars, check out their crowdfunding site and very entertaining explainer video at Pornopararicardo.info
