Re: New Youtube BAD

Isn’t Mick wonderfully polite in and after the interview? Lovely to see. It was back in the day it was the done thing to be seen to be polite and/or intelligent. These days it's a badge of honour to be seen to be thick. Agreed, but I think maybe only a few years earlier he had the aloof rock star i...

Re: Keith Levene's "I Was a Teen Guitarist 4 the Clash!"

Just finished reading the e-book. It's a poor effort tbh, from claiming all the credit for persuading Joe to join the band, to implying Mick hated him because he was a better guitarist, a lot of it just doesn't ring true. fortunately it didn't waste too much of my time, must had read it in less than...

Re: Guardian - 40 Greatest Songs ranked

The Call Up at number 7? That's mental.

Not even the 7th best track on Sandinista - more like 17th imo. It's a bit of a dirge to be honest, poor choice for a single.

Re: Who's been to the exhibition then?

Went along on Friday. Got there for it opening at 10am, and it was pretty quiet. What was there was great to see, but truth be told, there's not a lot to it. 45 minutes is all you need really. Best bit for me was the old 4-track TEAC which you could play about with. It had the vocals, guitar, bass a...

Re: Topper on 6 Music.

loved Topper's story about sitting in the tour bus in NY, listening to the final mix for the first time, going "Wow".

Who's been to the exhibition then?

Have read a few negative comments on FB, some saying there's not much to see (compared to The Jam exhibition at Somerset House a few years ago), and some saying it gets extremely busy. Am heading down to London for a couple of days over the holidays, and was going to drag the missus along to this, b...

Re: Two Degrees of Separation

I’ve got wind of a rumor that if the stars stay aligned, Mick will be quite soon going into the studio, producing an album for Subway Sect. According to Kris Needs, he's already produced it - Kris Needs Yesterday at 12:48 AM · Last night at the exhibition launch Mick invited me to hear the album he...

Re: 6 Music London Calling National Album Day

Is this the show that started with the shout out to the transgender community ...nah, you're alright. Is that a reference to Tom Robinson? Could have picked you up wrong, but you come across as a homophobic tosspot with that comment. - edit : just had another listen and realise you are on about Amy...

Re: The Clash observations thread.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QxD2s_oE0KQ This looks like a bit of a color upgrade from what was out there before. Side question, at around 2 minutes, they talk about their distaste for miming and mention something like "we tried it once in Germany..." Any idea what this is in reference to? Yes, ...

Robin Banks not a fan of Stay Free?

on Ep 4 of the Spotify podcast, he tells the tale of Mick coming round to his room one night, Mick says "I've written a song about you" and pulls out an acoustic and starts playing it. Robin says he was embarrassed by it.

He then says "a lot of people love that song - I just wish I was one of them!'

Re: Clash songs you can't stand

Version City - sounds like 10th rate Steely Dan to me
Ivan Meets GI Joe - terrible lyrics, terrible singing
Stop The World - totally lacking any kind of tune, just a drag
The Beautiful People Are Ugly Too - horrible 80s shiny pop, reminds me of Modern Romance

Re: Ranking Roger

Only 56, ffs.

Saw him at The Cluny 2 years ago, great gig. Also heard him on Liz Kershaw's 6 Radio show a couple of months ago and he was on good form.

Simmo in court

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/articl ... Clash.html

am somewhat staggered that Paul and his ex-missus' future royalties are valued at 10 million quid - makes you wonder how much Joe and Mick's cut is worth!
