Re: The Clash Video Footage | Kinolibrary x Don Letts

Lots of new clips there today of the Slits, much longer than the Clash clips too. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w3-zBUOFFJs Interesting Ari/Tessa switch at the beginning. Yeah that confused me - in fact I thought it wasn't actually the Slits at first. It's certainly not the early 1980s Slits. Nev...

Re: Happy Birthday, 101W!

Miss you, Wally. Does anyone know if his daughter is going to be in the Olympics this summer? I'm not sure they have named the squad yet, but fingers crossed. 101W originally thought these Olympics were a bit too early for her but obviously the postponement has changed that a bit. Not sure if I sho...

Re: MC5 Brother's and Sister's!

I'm just catching up with this one Marky - and it sounds fantastic - thanks! Any excuse to revisit the MC5 is fine by me. Pardon my ignorance, but where is the alternate version of Shakin' Street from? And what's the story of the 'original' and 'rare' mixes (tracks 12, 13, 14)? Babes in Arms cd. Pu...

Re: fill yer boots

That's a pretty comprehensive list of Clash shows - amazing what's available at the click of a mouse these days - although some of the details may be suspect: the last page is showing an FM recording from the Hollywood Bowl from 1982-10-31!
The Clash at the Hollywood Bowl, now that would be a find...

Re: Rat Patrol 2LP acetate

Could it mean you have the right to 'fish FOR' money, ie fish being a verb - you have a right to acquire money from whatever resources are available. I doubt it very much, it sounds too clumsy a phrase to pass the band's Quality Control. But it's a thought. More likely it is some sort of obscure sla...

Glad the tradition continues. Have a Happy post-punk post-Birthday :mrgreen:

Re: Rat Patrol 2LP acetate

Hi, thanks to all the work you guys have done in providing this great find, sorry can't remember names, but very much appreciated. When you were discussing the Cool Confusion track, it occurred to me I had a disk of mp3 rips, one being the version backed on the US SISOSIG 7" single from 1982. Liste...

Brilliant thanks Marky. I've got that Hugh Cornwell album but hadn't realised there was a Clash link.
Me too!
Some deep research has gone into this set, Marky. Thanks for including the text file with details of the band's involvement, lots here I never knew, or knew but had forgotten !

Here ya go, boogers: https://mega.nz/folder/kAsWlBjQ#Mg3W0MLwOOoQzIlOYQxy4Q Thanks Doc. Just checking back in to this thread, and pleased to see it's a bit of a find. The bass on Straight To Hell grabbed me right away as sounding much clearer/louder, if not a whole new part completely. I'm amazed t...
