An Interview to Manu Chao (read the last part) If anyone wants the whole interview, just ask me 4 it...

"Chirac da un asco que te cagas"

En el primer bloque del programa el ex cantante revolucionario de Mano Negra se despachó a gusto con la situación política que vive el país que le vio crecer, Francia. En alusiones directas a Chirac, el futurible presidente de la República Francesa, dijo: "Da un asco que te cagas. Hemos pasado la vida luchando contra ese señor y ahora resulta que viene otro peor (Le Pen)". Y es que Manu Chao augura un futuro triste a la "enferma democracia" -como él la define- "Desde que tengo 18 años y puedo votar nunca lo he hecho para alguien sino contra alguien. Y cuando ahora me toque votar en Francia lo tendré que seguir haciendo". Su anarquismo lo esgrime como espada de Damocles contra política y políticos e, incluso, hasta cuando habla de fútbol hace gala de un profundo sentimiento antifascista "Mis equipos preferidos son aquellos que no permiten entrar cruces gamadas en el estadio: el Depor, el Bilbao, el Osasuna, el Marsella."

Sorry 'bout that...

"Mis equipos preferidos son aquellos que no permiten entrar cruces gamadas en el estadio: el Depor, el Bilbao, el Osasuna, el Marsella."

My favourite teams are those in which stadiums people are not allowed to show swastikas: Deportivo de A Corunha, Athletic Club, C.A. Osasuna, Marseille

Sorry mate. I don't have a English version. By the way, Manu's mother is from Bilbo, in'she??

Salut

His music is great. It is great quality. He is my favourite individual musician. I have both CD's: Clandestion and Esperanza.

I didn't knew he has Basque roots. He speaks so many different languages at his CD's.

In the cover of his first album he also says something positive about Galicia and of course he sings: me gusta la coruna.

BTW, Puto Iosu I would like to have the whole text. Could you tell me where you've found it please :)

His mother is from Basque and his father from Galicia ig I`m not misstaking. He growed up in France, but lives since many years back in Barcelona where he has his own bar etc.

I like his music, but I`m not very found of him as person. Anyway, I`ve seen two concerts with him. He sometimes has concerts for free in Barcelona.
