Re: Anarchism, Marxism and Radical Politics

I've told students before that the huge, massive, colossal flaw in the right's claim that there's a left-wing conspiracy, like, everywhere is that actual left-wingers couldn't organize a bar trivia night without falling into pointless factionalism. It'd be kind of neat if the left were as united an...

Re: Strummservations

With the dust settled, and without the shock of the new, US North stands as one of the ultimate Strummer/Jones compositions. I love it but it makes much more sense as two shorter versions. The length is probably my favourite part. Each to their own mate but I don't think the repetitiveness of that ...

Re: Anarchism, Marxism and Radical Politics

This is good. I laughed. Then I had to fight the urge to critique satire.

Re: Anyone know how these trees are getting on?

As a Gen Z kid who barely got into the clash 4 years ago, I envy those who got one of these certifications. Joe was ahead of his time coming up with the idea for Future Forests; nowadays all the high-profile artists/celebrities are doing stuff like this to curb their carbon emissions. It’s a really...

Re: Coronavirus Thread of Doom

Hello, I'm glad it's not severe. I've often wondered how many people have had COVID and not tested/been aware/thought it was a cold. Get well quickly! I would say by this point a lot of people would have. When I had it I had a headache for a few days and then a quite mild cold, the kind that just m...

Re: Joe Strummer - 66 rarities

Took a bit of effort but got this downloaded. Those file hosting sites were pretty scammy. It's got no track numbers so defaults to alphabetical order, and the post itself is alphabetical too, so hard to put it into a more logical order. For example there's live Pogues tracks but they're not all to...

Re: Without People You're Nothing

Thanks mate. I'm still getting through listening to it. I think When Pigs Fly is my favourite so far. Wreckage in the Ravine is the biggest surprise, but also because there was that much genuinely different material and it didn't make 002. Bizarre.

Re: Without People You're Nothing

Hey Marky, is this designed to sit in conjunction with other albums? For example did you deliberately not include stuff because it was already on official releases? Sorry if it's a dumb question but I'm not familiar with all the nuances of Joe's catalogue.

Re: Without People You're Nothing

I'm often not the best judge of these, but the second untitled track does sound a bit reggaeish to my ears anyway so I'd bet that might well be Bases are Loaded. I'm tempted to guess the same. And this is really just a wild guess but the title "Steady America" sounds to me like a sunny day cruisin'...

I'm guessing it is this? Thanks for sharing.
Looks like it, it's the same cover image.

Re: (Wanted) Permanent Record

Thanks Flex! Dunno why but I didn't get the usual notice that a reply had come, so didn't see this until now!

And thanks marx, I didn't see the Australian one when I last looked (though it's $74 inc shipping!)
