Posts from the ‘Clash’ Category
Y’all know I’m a huuuuuuuuuge fan of the Clash. And by huge, I don’t mean I’m fat. I mean I love the ornery fuckers. So, I try not to let more than a month go by without doing something to pay tribute to Joe, Mick, Paul, Topper, and the rest of the crew. This time, it’s an “acoustic” show (mostly percussion in the mix). I wish this were better quality, but you take what you can get. The cool thing about it is you can really hear all of the lyrics.
The songlist is above, on the jacket of the CD. If anyone out there has a crisper quality version of acoustic Clash material, I desperately want it. In fact, if you’ve got any rare Clash/Clash related stuff, please send it to me.
I have several more Clash posts planned over the next few months.
A few tastes, and a zip:
Last week, this blog scored bigg on Digg.com. Yet the post I did wasn’t all that different from a lot of other posts I do here. If any of you have any idea why or how the rocker/rappers post garnered so much attention, I’d love to hear your thoughts. I mean, I’m not unhappy with my regular numbers here, but why did that post get so popular on Digg whereas most of my posts only get three or four dugg votes? I’m also asking all of you to help by giving good ratings to my site at wherever you play (stumbleupon, digg, blogtopsites, etc.).
Okay, now on with the post: I thought I’d thrown these up before, but I guess I haven’t. “Street rats” is a collection of unreleased promos, demos, and live recordings by the world’s greatest band, The Clash.
