Hit impepinable: Fire Spirit (16 horsepower)

16 horsepower hicieron unas cuantas versiones de aúpa. Muy notable fue, por ejemplo, el Heart and soul de Joy Division, que de pura intensidad hace volar las txapelas y temerosos del altísimo a los ateos más recalcitrantes. No obstante, la que más me gusta, probablemente porque saca del grupo un registro poco o nada habitual en él, es el Fire Spirit de Gun Club, un pepinazo que me recordaron Les Ton Ton Macoutes en el pasado Go Sinner Go!! y que aquí os traigo para la serie de Hits Impepinables.

La canción se encuentra en una reedición del LP Low Estate de 1997, llamada Nouvelle version en la que colabora Bertrand Cantat del grupo francés Noir Désir del que no tengo más noticias que esta colaboración. Esta edición del disco también añade The Partisan, de Leonard Cohen.

He aquí el Hit impepinable:

 

Fire Spirit

16 horsepower, Low State – Nouvelle version, 1997
(original de Gun Club)

I can see clearly from my diamond eyes
I’m going to the mountain with a fire spirit
No one will accept all of me, so the fire will stop
And for the straights that got fire cars
I’m going to the mountain with a fire spirit
No one will take all of me, and the fire will stop
I will be cheating the whole ritual
I’m going to the mountain with a fire spirit
No one will accept all of me, and the fire will stop
Someone weird read: “Pen down a circle”
Yeah, someone left on a burned out world
Someone knows I’m dead as hell
Where the old north wind blows through southeast hell, yeah
And then John was betrayed by the machine
A proper circuit was a promise to me
I’m going up to the mountain to see
How blessing will set me free, yeah
I had to do something
I was wearing down
I was going down
Why can no one ever touch a fire spirit?
Why can no one ever hold a fire spirit?
Why can no one ever feel a fire spirit?
I am going to the mountain
Yeah, I can see clearly from my diamond eyes
I’m going to the mountain with a fire spirit
And no one will accept all of me, so the fire will stop
With too much patience and too much pain
I’m going to the mountain with a fire spirit
To make amends for all of me, and the fire will stop
