So far, the surviving members of the Clash, Ms. Smith and Epic Records, which released “London Calling” in the U.S. and is today owned by Sony Music Entertainment, have “shown absolutely no interest,”

Sums it up really. As we teeter on the edge of the extinction of mankind.

It's fitting that Siminon – the 'artist'...was the one to 'make' the key image
...sure, Pennie snapped it/Joe picked it...but Paul DID it.
He may very well have had real feel for reggae but musically he was kinda dead weight;
I know, I know...Guns of Brixton is a bit of a statement – but, y'know?
Paul seems kinda redundant and lost now (to be fair – they all do)
but, with all this talk of The Beatles guy – Sutcliffe and factor in Townsend's talk
of 'Auto Destruction'...I like that Paul took centre stage and made this epochal image
in an act of strange emotion; seriously, you could wright an art thesis on it, right;
Performance art/Bernie's thing of combining musicians and non-musicians/fate/expression
or just an ejit wrecking a bass?

Hey, but this is serious, to quote the man himself.

Yep who gives a fuck when it happened. It's a cool image but not the greatest. It's a great album.
