Brutus’ Daughters is a punk-folk band which was born in a southern county of Madrid. Having a classic punk band formation, they introduced both an Asturian bagpipe and a fiddle as a way to create the kind of music from which they have taken great influence. All of the members once belonged to other national punk, hxc, oi! and folk bands coming from different parts of Spain , and that’s why their influences are so many. The songs are written in languages such as Castilian, Asturian and English, not being narrow-minded if having to deal with other dialects. Concerning the subjects, some of the lyrics reflect the value of friendship involved in the ‘shebeen’ culture, while others contain a socio-political message, dennouncing the mistreat underpriviledged people has to suffer because of the abuse of authority. Literature from ethnical minorities, autobiographies, and traces from mythology deeply rooted in celt tradition have served as a source for many of them. The rescue of endangered languages is one of their concerns, the cultural richness and the linguistic variety is such that the need of preserving them, together with a social view of what is around them, is a must for their song’s inspiration. Also, the Irish influence is undeniable,taking bands like The Dubliners, The Clancy Brothers, or The Chieftains as a path to follow. As a consequence, it is easy to find in their repertoire melodies shaped in jigs, reels, and hornpipes, as well as sea songs. WARNING:NO RACIST SITE! NO FASCIST SITE! NO MERCY!
