Does the band buy off on this sort of licensing?
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.

I think they look pretty decent but I'm about 20 years past being in the market for new Docs. The Harrington jacket is a bit tempting tho.

Briggy, I thought your rundown on Facebook of the historical inaccuracies with this release was interesting.

Sign off, yes. There's a tie-in with Don's Clash playlist on Spotify. Most "legacy" bands and artists are selling off all rights to their music. The remaining Clash members don't want to.

Cool.

In my experience, the Harrington jacket size is larger than stated on the site. Not 1980 slim fit.

It's my understanding that the made in England Docs (including the 2 Clash models) are manufactured in the Solovair (Wollaston) factory. I have a pair of Solovair monkey boots.

Ah right, so they are charging a premium now for what used to be the norm! The solovaire factory was the Dr Martin's factory originally before they moved out to China. I've got a pair of 14 hole Vegetarian boots made in that factory and I got them second hand around 15 years ago! Still going strong, whereas my last few pairs of docs split within a couple of years! Each to there own I suppose but not for me
