Re: Rat Patrol 2LP acetate

May be a little late, but many thanks to everyone who helped edit the original audio. Same from me. Thanks to everyone who helped on the audio! And coincidentally, I just correctly heard the closing lines of Straight to Hell for the first time after it being one of my favorite songs since I first h...

Re: The De-Berniator

It's been a while now and I've gotten over the initial freak out about this and have let it sit for a while. As I'm listening to it this morning I am still just amazed at how good this is and the amount of work that went into it. This takes me back to my initial disappointment/disgust of when this ...

Re: Rat Patrol 2LP acetate

I don't know how these work. How many of these acetates did they print? Presumably it was very limited.

Re: Rat Patrol 2LP acetate

I don't actually believe this, but let's say Kosmo Vinyl is being an absolute, not knowing his position jerk and stepping on Mick's toes and Paul, the least musical, worst vocalist of the band is also nearly coming to blows with you about the mix of a record. Would you then let them both humiliate ...

Re: Rat Patrol 2LP acetate

I guess Bankrobber doesn't really count on account of the band not actually "performing" it. I know i must have seen it at the time as i never missed an episode of totp but can't remember what my reaction was or what i even thought of the band at that moment. It's a totally unmemorable set of visua...

Re: Rat Patrol 2LP acetate

One of the consistent tensions in the history of rock music has been this conflicted view of the mass audience. If you want to be taken seriously, you can't appeal to the mass, because the masses are lazy and stupid (so conventional thought goes). The masses follow fads and like things for superfic...

Re: Rat Patrol 2LP acetate

"Better make Inoculated City shorter and worse! There needs to be room for Red Angel Dragnet! I'm very successful!" In fairness, he did take over a minute off of Red Angel Dragnet. We lost more of the sound collage portion of Inoculated sure. What's a producer's job, if not to say: don't let your p...

Re: Article on Gerald's CTC remix

Fantastic article! While Gerald's work has us thinking of what ifs about this era, I was wondering if anything could've been done with the vocals from the version of In the Pouring Rain that Joe did for When Pigs Fly. Could the Clash II's arrangement be re-created with those vocals? The WPF version...

Great find! I was looking for other clips on their channel and found these clips of Nick Sheppard from his Cortinas days.

Re: What did the Clash think of Joy Division/the Post Punk Scene

Can’t seem to recall ever reading any mention of this. Anyone know what sort of opinion they held? I would think they self pitying nature of the music would run counter to what they believed at the time. I was actually wondering the same thing recently. I'd love to come across any interviews from b...

Re: What did the Clash think of Joy Division/the Post Punk Scene

I've often wonder what they thought of Britpop as well. Perhaps Joe Strummer thought Liam Gallagher was a bit of a dunce? Or working class hero? Would guess he was ok with it, or at least albarn, pulp etc anyway. And doing England's irie and hanging out with Keith Allen and that crowd, wouldn't hav...

Re: Dark Horse releases - 'Assembly' 2LP

Hopefully US Norths demo gets released or leaked at some point. A Strummer/Jones composition I like just as much as anything else they did. I second this. I love the two live BAD versions we heard for years and especially the Strummer 001 version, but it'd be incredible if we heard Mick and Joe a b...
