Re: 7” Vinyl Sleeves - Minutiae Help Please

Sorry not sure where you can get those. In past times bc I would. I have got most of my old vinyl in pvc sleeves but mostly with the u at the top. I was disappointed to be told that apparently they are bad news and can damage the vinyl hence why the flimsy plastic ones are used now. I was also told...

My brother had a picture of the 1966 World Cup squad and I am sure he was one of the reserve goalkeepers.

Re: London Calling Stats

Not sure if I was more surprised how clear the top 5 would be or that Death Or Glory was in the breakaway group? Quite surprised by that myself. I agree with 4 of the top 5 but would swap Death or Glory for Guns of Brixton. Joe and Mick should have sang Brixton. Yeah, Paul puts in his one decent Cl...

Re: The Call Up Promo Video

Very interesting to read about your perspective on TCU. It put the song in a whole new context for me. I recall at the time in the UK it was given a bit of a slating as it played into the narrative of the Clash becoming too Americanised. It resonated more with me almost 18 months after its UK relea...

Jeez I don't envy you and those that fought against this bureaucratic bullshit. Thanks for the link so much to go through there. Some amazing anti-draft posters/art to start with.
