Re: Combat Rock 40th anniversary reissue coming soon?

That's something I often find curious because it seems so obvious in retrospect. A group is suffering from serious in-fighting, creative differences, all that crap, so just agree to hit pause for a couple years to let people do their own thing and cool the room. Then see if time apart serves as a r...

Re: Combat Rock 40th anniversary reissue coming soon?

I'll say it again they were and are not "The Only Band That Matters". I hate that quote completely. You could paraphrase it then: the sole rock n roll combo of significance. :shifty: The Clash's core product was catharsis- a bunch of pissed-off little tweekers going absolutely apeshit and coupling ...

Re: Combat Rock 40th anniversary reissue coming soon?

It's still not really clear to me that the clash were ever genuinely particularly committed to destroying or subverting anything. I think they always pretty much wanted to be pop stars and their gestures otherwise were good ways to move product. In that context, their contemporary shenanigans fit p...

Re: Combat Rock 40th anniversary reissue coming soon?

It's just typical corporate product- Epic just needed a single LP with a couple radio ready singles. The Clash could have taped their farts and set them to a polka beat for the remainder of the record and no one at the label would have cared. No, The Clash become exactly what they'd set out to dest...

Re: Combat Rock 40th anniversary reissue coming soon?

 “In England people were like, ‘Oh fuck, The Clash have sold out’ What "people" would that be then Don? The same people that bought it in droves and sent it to number two in the charts. You know the actual "people" that really matter. Or journalists. Or perhaps some old punk rockers too stuck in th...

You need to have more birthdays
I've thought before it would be borderline funny for someone to keep changing their birthday here so that every day the system announces it. Just this slightly dickish thing to falsely announce your special day every day.

They have no time to weep; they're way too busy notating Peart's drum routines for every song.

Nothing significant in this little bit except for Paul's desire for a waterproof tv set: https://www.uncut.co.uk/features/interviews/the-clash-combat-rock-final-album-classic-track-by-track-138452/ I bought one of those waterproof tv set's but sadly I broke it when I realised I hadn't filled up the...

Re: Funny sketch comedy that's funny

Okay, another Kids post. DL'd and watched the documentary this morning. Funny and moving. Five guys who love each other and love making each other laugh. One thing that is striking, both in this and in the round of interviews, is that Bruce, the true punk guy of the group, has really mellowed and be...

Hello,

I really liked these guys. I came across this video and as people had mention the Kids in the Hall - dim the lights, chill the ham, people!

Highly recommend any and all their records. Really fun surf rock without being cliched surf rock.

Re: The Kaleb Horton Deceased Latvian Foreign Minister Thread, 2022 Edition

Roger Angell, 101. His baseball season summaries in the New Yorker, later compiled into various books, are exceptional. A storyteller’s talent applied to sports. Honestly, if you’ve never read his stuff, it’s why we’ve fallen in love with that stupid game.
