Looks like a rebranded Viva Joe Strummer (or "re-licensed", or whatever the word for that is) —

I believe I watched this. It had the feel of a TV documentary and featured interviews from the usual suspects. It was by no means terrible, but also not all that memorable.

I'm more excited about Don Letts' forthcoming revamped Westway To the World. No talking heads, just footage of the band at work and at play, with voiceovers from the original film.

Wow! Yes, that sounds like something to look forward to. First I've heard of it. Any idea of when?

I hadn't heard about this. More details?
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Nice! Like someone said in the thread about I'm a Cliche, it was great to just hear the talking heads so they could focus on footage of her/Spex.
Got a Rake? Sure!

That sounds awesome! It’s always a treat getting “new” Clash stuff.
