Fedele Billy Bragg's Internationale / W. Guthri (15) RE: Billy Bragg's Internationale / W. Guthri 25 Apr 00

Sorry. I was really sure he was Scottish; don't know why, maybe I thought his accent was Scottish. Billy says he regards the old English lyrics "unsingable" (I remember the precise word) and old in the back cover of the EP. I lent it to a friend it by now, but I'll report his words when I get it back. He reminds that most versions were hastly translated by foreign delegates at a SFIO (the French Socialist Party) congress in 1886 (?) when they all heard the original French version of L'Internationale for the first time.
