VOLKSMACHT, Chile Venceremos, 1974

Again I found this last week for 50 cents in a local thrift store. It was released by a group of Berlin communists in support of the Chilean people who were massacred by the military Junta in 1974.

Chile Venceremos (we shall overcome) is a folk song but the singing is very similar to that of   Ton  Steine Scherben, Germany´s most radical-leftist Krautrock group. It features some cool commie lyrics about overthrowing the capitalist system and fighting violently to the end…
