about

das=the(german), yutes=youth(italian, jamaican slang)

in the early mid 90's all ages venues were uncommon enough but rarer still was the all youth run, all ages venue. "das yutes" was just such a venue. this was 1995.

das yutes initially existed as a music venue. that lasted a little more than a summer. das yutes really became a youth force, to be reckoned with a year later. a 'collective' group of youths cleaned the place up. painted it, so they could have meetings, host band practices, a zine library, screen printing room etc. This all happened at Das Yutes the 2nd generation.

"food not bombs" and their numerous benefit shows were products of meetings at das yutes. diy art shows, poetry slams, actions against police brutality, music shows too.... other events.

the movement created by all of this youth run activity was not unlike a march of sorts. a relatively sustained march( a year?) a collectfve of young folks, working together, moving forward. a youth march against boredom, a march against authoritative ugliness. a march somewhere. to something.

the melody of this song i feel represents the 'movement". it's resolute, stoic even. never wavering throughout the song, even as the rhythm section breaks down often.

the rhythm marches on though!

the break down in the middle, of the song is just ridiculous! like some mariachi horns on guitar. triumphant! morricone meets maiden! the power. the majesty, its glory, successfully holding of a battalion of soldiers at bay to win the war. some war.

youth culture war?!
