The Indie Anthology 1: essential songs

We start a new section of the blog today, with the only purpose of "rescuing" songs (one on each post) that no one should miss, and build a very special Indie Anthology while we rediscover or enjoy for the first time this not so well-known indie gems. 

Song: Revolutionary Spirit
Band: The Wild Swans
Year: 1982

Our first song is a wonder that celebrates its 30th Anniversary this year. The debut single (never to appear on a regularly released album) of The Wild Swans, the cult and damned band from Liverpool, who disbanded in 1990, but luckily returned to music in 2011. Leaded by the ridiculously talented Paul Simpson (former member of the also essential group The Teardrop Explodes). Post-romantic, epic lyrics, with one of the best melodies post-punk/new wave's style has given to music. Thanks to Pete de Freitas (Echo and The Bunnymen, Simpson's friend and flatmate) who funded, produced and played the drums on the single.
