Sangre Y Fierru
A precursor band of the punk-oi!-folk in Spain, this is one of the most brilliant and original recordings of the style. With the Asturian bagpipe as a banner and sung almost entirely in Asturian language, the band reviews in the lyrics a great part of the topics of oi! and the Asturian mythology. Aggressive and combative music in a historical album. Coinciding with the twentieth anniversary of its release in CD format, "Sangre i Fierru", by the Asturian band Oi! n'Ast ("Oi in Asturian"), an iconic record of the Spanish punk-oi!-folk scene, is released remastered on glorious vinyl. Following in the footsteps of Dropkick Murphys, the band was formed in the late 90's to combine punk spirit and Asturian soul, quickly gaining a loyal and fervent local following. In 2002 "Sangre y Fierru" is released in CD format (first reference of the label Guns of Brixton Records) obtaining good repercussion, which leads them to play in Spain, France and Switzerland during the following years. The band ended their career in 2006 with a certain bitter taste for the end of an era, but their only album has created a legacy and has grown in importance in these two decades. It is not surprising the presence of their songs today in full vindication for the official nature of the Asturian language.
