La España Bird’s Spain – More de Bird – Más para to Rebel Against rebelarse Durante su último tour por Europa, Bird recuerda una España muy viva. “La energía de la gente y como quieren dar palmas con la música… me dio tendinitis”, dijo, refiriéndose a sus últimos conciertos en Madrid y en Barcelona. Parece que toda la música que rodea a Bird le inspira de alguna manera. “Mientras estaba en Barcelona tenía mi bici… recuerdo los grupos de salsa al lado del puerto”. During his last tour in Europe, Bird remembered Spain as very alive. “The energy of the people and how much they want to clap along… I got tendonitis,” he said, referring to his last Madrid and Barcelona shows. It seems as if all the music that surrounds Bird inspires him in some way. “While I was in Barcelona I had my bike with me… I remember the salsa bands by the harbor.” En una entrevista de mayo del 2007, con Joshua Klein de Pitchfork, Bird menciono que en algunos países donde había estado durante su tour, incluyendo a España, existía una uniformidad: que a pesar de la situación política liberal, todavía era bastante

conservadora and que no había una cantidad de expresión individual perceptible en la calle. Pero, ¿quizás su música podría abrir la puerta para que música más experimental se haga en España? “No, no tengo intenciones de que pase eso…” el dijo. A pesar de su comentario refiriéndose a la situación política, nos aseguró que, “a la vez cuidan a sus ciudadanos”.

In a May 2007 interview with Pitchfork’s Joshua Klein, Bird mentioned that in a few European countries where he had toured, including Spain, there was a uniformity: that despite the more liberal political situation, it was still fairly conservative and that there wasn’t a noticeable amount of individual expression on the street. But could his music open the door to more experimental music being created here in Spain? “No, I don’t have any intentions of that…” he said. Despite his comment regarding the political situation, he assured us that, “they do at the same time take care of their citizens.”
