Re: Hey limeys

Is Johnson toast this time? I think he is. Possibly definitely. Anyway, great to see all these brave honourable tory politicians stand up and draw a line in the sand. Nobody can be proven to be an amoralistic, inveterate liar for the 55th time and get away with it. Asinine, stupefying! Are you posi...

Re: Topper with the Moors Murderers

This is the photo I was referencing in my last post, to give you a better idea of what I mean. I got it off a Dolls/Thunders photo page on Facebook -- I don't think I've seen that particular shot anywhere else. Don't have any details on the provenance of it (venue, gig), because I don't recall seei...

Re: Red Angel Dragnet

Conviction can counter so much of a lack of conventional singing ability. Biafra, Lydon, Mark E. Smith, Dylan—none have/had conventionally pleasing voices, but there's conviction in what they're doing that allows it to work. Docs right. Being in tune comes second to passion. Well hopefully I have s...

Re: Ghetto Defendant.

Personally I like his vocals they work really well on the track. But that certainly doesn't mean I have any time for him. If it was 1982 all over again and the band new more about his activities then I would hope they would've chosen somebody else for that vocal part. Removing them now only draws m...

Re: Topper with the Moors Murderers

When I first saw Sid & Nancy, I immediately noticed that Cox changed it to a hammer & sickle shirt. Indeed maybe a little less offensive.. Yeah -- I remember thinking at the time I saw it, "I get it. Too much to explain, otherwise." I'm having the same feeling right now, as I'm getting ready to go ...

Re: God Tier GEER version

My take on GEER is there is too much Mick going on. On the first album Mick can be heard in the left and right channels with these brilliant little riffs complementing each other. On GEER Mick can be heard in the left, right channels and also in the centre of the mix. All three areas playing differe...

Re: Ghetto Defendant.

I think Ginsberg is a horrible character. However it was clear that in 1982 that none of us knew (I certainly didn't) of his sexual preferences etc. Joe was enamored by the the beat poets Jack Kerouac et all. So he (they) were probably thrilled first backing him on Capital Air at Bond International ...

Re: Topper with the Moors Murderers

I agree about the shock tactic aspect totally. Perhaps it was just me trying to justify wearing the gear. My argument always worked though, so perhaps they were cleverer than we think? However, if they produced the Sid swastika T-shirt a la Paris then I’m clearly wrong. But was that a seditionaries...

Re: Sex Pistols

To properly account for Bernie would require another nine episodes. A sacrifice I'd have been willing to make. It'd be like "Alice's Restaurant"—you remember the Sex Pistols? This is a series about the Sex Pistols. Pistol 2, when they reunite and play Live Aid with Freddie Mercury and Princess Dian...

Re: Combat Rock 40th anniversary reissue coming soon?

I swear I remember Pop Up Video for RTC saying that Mick was upset at the time of filming, hence wearing the mask. Of course this is a memory from watching a video in like 1999, so I'm likely mistaken. [Director] Don Letts: I was in Texas with the Clash to shoot “Rock the Casbah,” and Mick Jones sh...

Red Light Spells Danger by Billy Ocean is not only one of the greatest disco records ever, it's one of the greatest songs ever.
Fucking brilliant song mate. Still can't believe it wasn't made 10 years earlier. Awesome song.

Re: Would/Should/Could The Clash headline Glastonbury?

I remember many years ago hearing "rumours" about Tim Armstrong (Rancid) playing some gigs with Topper,MIck and Paul... although I never saw any Clash member in any guise I'm also kind of glad that never happened. I would definitely pay to see Topper, Mick and Paul do something together, just not r...
