Afterboltxebike - Pavlichenko

  "Fell by your gun, yes, Fell by your gun, 

For more than three hundred Nazis fell by your gun"

   Afterboltxebike are a hardcore punk band from San Nicolás de los Garza , Mexico who formed in 2015 with the intention of sharing their Communist ideology. Their name comes from a song by Basque punk band Kortatu and roughly translates as After Bolsheviks. As well as putting across their message via music, they're also involved in various political initiatives.

  They're a 3 piece comprising of Gabriela (drums), Andrea (bass/vocals) and Diego (guitar/vocals). As far as I'm aware, they've only recorded a couple of songs so far, one of them is called De Que Lado Estas and asks which side are you on? The bosses or the workers? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EoTFqsndBlA 

  The other song, which you'll find below, is about Lyudmila Pavlichenko, the World War 2 Red Army sniper who was credited with over 300 kills and is the most prolific female sniper in history. She was the subject of a 1946 song by Woody Guthrie, a sample of which was used to end the song  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SHKjOl9ocR0


  This is Pavlichenko.....

Afina su mira, recarga su arma 
Su objetivo es la peste parda 
Respira hondo y dispara 
Otro nazi ha muerto por sus balas 
Defendió Odessa y disparo en Crimea 
Lyudmila Pavlichenko era toda una guerrera 
Esperando en la nieve inicio el infierno 
De los fascistas que invadieron 

Trecientos nazis murieron 
Pavlichenko los cazó 
Oficiales y sargentos 
A ninguno perdonó.
