GeoffLawes Songs in English about the Spanish Civil War (215* d) RE: Songs in English about the Spanish Civil War 28 Jun 17

In the latest newsletter of the International Brigade Memorial Trust came news of two new songs dedicated to British international brigaders John Longstaff and Bob Cooney. These songs appear on the new album by The Young'uns, entitled 'Strangers', which is to be released on 29 September.

The song 'Cable Street' is about John Longstaff, a Tees-sider who took part in the anti-fascist Battle of Cable Street in London in 1936 before going to Spain. 'Bob Cooney's Miracle' tells a story about Aberdeen International Brigader Bob Cooney's time in Spain.

The album can be pre-ordered here: And is reviewed here.
