RICKY WARWICK - premieres official video! - 2016-06-17

2016-06-17 - RICKY WARWICK's new double album, »When Patsy Cline Was Crazy (And Guy Mitchell Sang The Blues)« and »Hearts On Trees«, was released in February of this year. Today, RICKY returns with the official video for 'Schwaben Redoubt' premiering exclusively with War History Online!

RICKY comments:
"This is a song about a friendship found between two teenage lads from Ireland in a trench in Northern France on the morning of the 1st July 1916... a hundred years ago this year. One from the North one from the South who would on any other day hate each other's guts but today all they have is each other, a shared fear of death and a shared name... 'Schwaben Redoubt' was the name of the German position they walked towards that morning... and into death."

Sam Robinson, who wrote the lyrics to the song adds:
"It isn't lost on RICKY nor I that as the 100th anniversary of the Battle of the Somme approaches once again thousands of Irishmen, Northern and Southern have returned to France this month, their purpose goodwill, laughter and bon homie. Times like these only exist through the sacrifice made by men like Liam Kelly and Billy Drennan who fell side by side on the 'Schwaben Redoubt' on the morning of the 1st July 1916. Regardless of our differences, sometimes there is a greater evil with which to do battle. 'Schwaben Redoubt' was simply written song with a deeper message and meaning. To have the front men of two of Ireland's greatest bands STIFF LITTLE FINGERS and THIN LIZZY step up to the mic and tell the tale is for me simply mind-blowing."

With guest vocals by Jake Burns (STIFF LITTLE FINGERS) the song, as the 100th anniversary of the battle approaches, is a tribute to the young men of Ireland North and South, Catholic and Protestant who gave their lives in what was to ironically to be labelled the war to end all wars. The video's inclusion of war-time images only adds to the poignancy of this fateful point in history during the summer of 1916 in Northern France.
