how we played the revolution

Big up cafe scopitane for again showing amazing free music documentaries with a political content at the schouwberg kleine zaal! How we played the revolution was a well told story using loads of archive footage of how a band formed as a joke by some architects became an unlikely figurehead for the lithuanian revolution.

It was pretty tear-jerking stuff to see full on people power in effect, huge lines of people holding hands down the highway as a plane flew above filming them and showering them with flowers.

Also the bit where the band goes on tour through the countryside in a bus with the lithuanian flag flying proudly was cool. The old grandparent types that they visited were crying and saying they thought they would never see the flag in their lifetime again. Kinda reminiscent of tekno travellers spreading the revolutionary message of dance…
