Saturday Matinee – Yotuel, Gente de Zona y Descemer Bueno; Santana, Golden Earring & The Skids

by

Cuba Libre.

When the people of Cuba took to the streets by the thousands in protest over the past weekend, the mainstream media in our county fired up the spin machine. It’s about COVID and shortages, they said.

They were all lying.

This video is credited with helping inspire the uprising. It says everything about the human desire to be free and Cuba’s desire to throw off the shackles of communist tyranny. If you don’t speak Spanish, make sure to watch it with the captions on.


Carlos Santana & Everlast from the 1999 Santana album Supernatural, one of my few impulse purchases. Good stuff.
(Sí, sé que Carlos no es cubano, pero aun así…)

Golden Earring was active from 1961 to 2021, and were the best known and internationally most successful rock band to come out of the Netherlands. [h/t Feral Irishman]

The Skids. The vocals are notoriously unintelligible so the song works for just about anything.

Lotta heavy stuff coming down the road, so stay alert and be safe while I go get a haircut. See you tomorrow.
