Paolo Ghidini of the band, writing about the destruction of the H-Blocks, says in a message to the Bobby Sands Trust: “We are essentially pacifist, and we don’t have any political approach to the history, but we modestly tried to express our feeling about it with a song, named ‘Long Kesh’… How sad was seeing the maze destroyed during our last trip in Ulster... I think that in another country, it would become an historic museum.”
