G2: Miami-Cuban Punk Rock Goes Hard In the Magic City
G2 band practice.
Miami New Times editor-in-chief Chuck Strouse has limited us to six F-words per post (what is he, the state police?), so we'd just like to say fuck communism, fuck Fidel, fuck censorship, fuck political repression, fuck the system, and fuck the tyranny of evil!
We salute the hell out of Gil for using music to take on a murderous dictator. The exile musician's contributions to the writing and performing of anti-conformist, anti-establishment, dissident music while he was living in a country where it can get you locked up or killed are courageous and inspiring. That's more real than anything we've ever done, and his story makes for one hell of a read.
