CUBA: Porno Para Ricardo tribute to the Ladies in White

If everything was so hunky-dory in Cuba now, dissidents like the Ladies In White would be closing shop right now. But they’re still protesting and still getting curbstomped.

The rafts? They’re still washing ashore around here. Guess they didn’t get the memo from the White House.

And real anti-authoritarian punk rock remains alive, defiant and perhaps suicidal in the continued output of Porno Para Ricardo.  In case you don’t know, I’ve been harping about them since 2007 and covered a couple of their tunes to boot.

So I was pleasantly surprised to discover they dropped a tune in tribute to the Ladies in White over at their Bandcamp. This is subtler than most of their catalog but the punk intensity remains. Key lyric, “ni mil ejercitos podran pararlas” (“not even a thousand armies will be able to stop them” — which may end up being what Castro, Inc. sends after them).
