If you can listen to it without a chilling burst of immortality, there is a layer between you and the world
one doesn’t have to be versed or even interested in political history to recognize that it’s an absolute gem of a tune
There is an early period and a late period but no real mid-period
You should go because the amazing Schizophonics are opening
it will be a limited affair
an acoustic version of I’m not Down, dedicated to me- cuz they know its my theme song
Career Opportunities – The Clash – A masterpiece of agitprop dead endism that heralded a world where people in the UK would never have a job in their entire life. Meanwhile, bus driver? ambulance man? Opening Letterbox. And it never ever knock – A+
“Crawford, you are a first rate goldbricker. When will you start earning your keep, you lousy bum?” “Um…hello…is this my mom?” “Funny. Do you know what it means to be a contributing writer to Rock NYC?” “Limited street cred with aging punk rock strippers?” “It means you actually write for us. Alyson Camus sends in more articles in a week than you do in six months.”
I honestly thought I would get a bit melancholy in watching it or bored but just the opposite happened . The mixing of history and music worked so incredibly well that I was actually able to sit still through the entire program- and that is a rarity for someone with the extreme ADD I seem to posses.
this guy has recorded with about everybody in the music business, from The Rolling Stones to the Who, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, the Eagles, The Beatles, the Kinks, the Clash,… basically there is a great chance that the classic song stuck in your head right now, was recorded by Glyn.
‘The Clash were always teachers to me, even before I shared a studio with Paul and Mick. Their musical anarchy and constant attitude to disregard rules and forge their own path was inspirational to me. They meant death to genres, music and message above everything. Frank lives by the same creed
Mick looks like an over anxious dog hunched forward and rocking to Diplos every word and Paul still stoic and stiff shoots a periodic smile. Ocean seems to me he got the short end of the stick and he’s the one with most to offer in this tune.
But ‘years have passed and things have changed’ and everyone has something to say about it. The Rise and Fall takes a look at the life span of the only band that matters’ and within it shows footage to make you swoon.
At the end, what does this tell us? That there is a life after punk rock? But do we need to know… I already wasn’t very found of chiropractors and their new-age-y-pseudo-medicine (it’s wacky what can I say) but a catholic chiropractor?
Janie Jones – The Clash – On the list of greatest songs forever, the Clash looks at 1960s party girl scandal girl and wonders what it has done to do with the 9 to 5 world; political sleight of hand let’s them know – A+
Fred Armisen was a cast member on Saturday Night Live a few years ago and if the show didn’t suck so badly would never have gained any fame. See the show is so horrific that a comedian need only one good bit to be a ‘star’. I kid you not if Armisen was in the ‘good ol days of SNL’ he’d have ended up a bit player for half a season.
JOE STRUMMER WAS STUNNED,AND APPARANTLY RETIRED THE 101’ERS AND BEGAN FORMING THE CLASH SOON AFTER
