One of the best damned bass players to ever grace the musical world with his presence!! Phenomenal lines.
So true.I saw The Clash at Wellington Town Hall on Feb 7th 1982 - Great show especially the guy who swan dived of the mezzanine floor and the crowd parting like the Red Sea for Moses beneath him.The landing was not pretty...........

I was at Logan Campbell Feb 5th. A friend inside opened up one of the fire-doors & dozens of us swarmed thru. Good times

Cheers TD - always good to keep the place tidy. Fender, Charlie... I'm in awe - never had the chance to see them. I really wanted to get to the Gorillaz gig last year since Jones and Simmonen were playing and bloody well missed that too. My 8 year old lad loves them too - I made him a metre square poster of the London Calling cover - now he wants me to do the same with the lyrics inside the cover.

I saw Joe Strummer live, but never the original band - even I am too young!

Only Clash I can lay claim to liking when it came out is "Rock The Casbah".

My musical education is so conservative, so delayed that when I really listened to the Sex Pistols for the first time - early 90s - I thought "Actually, that's pretty damn poppy, what was the fuss about?!"

I felt exactly the same way when I saw "A Clockwork Orange" for the first time.

Context and timing is (almost) everything of course....

I think you should wait until surfin tells you how to feel then.
No need, a fine looking chap with a sensible haircut, pipe and vest I can tell by his good posture he is a wise and knowledgable man.

As opposed to the burger king guy wearing sun glasses?

Maybe I should grow a long rats tail like you. :eek:

Unfortunately I never had a "Le Grand Mullet", said in French cause it's classy, but you have to admire the engineering required to get one. Actually the greatest one I have ever seen in person was something I could only discribe as a MullHawk, the dude had a Mohawk down to half way on the back of his head where his hair grew out into a mullet that went down his back, one of my greatest regrets in life was I couldn't get a good enough quality photo to share with the world. In your case I do admire the "hold" you seem to get with your hair product of choice.

loved the Anti-Nowhere League, also the Exploited , Sex & Violence one of my desert island tunes.
Thank God for the punk revolution otherwise we would all still be listening to Bob Seger & the Eagles. Punk opened up the doors for reggae, rap & hiphop, Americana , pretty much all the World Music you cant hear on Radio Hauraki etc

If anyone is in Auckland and want a good show - Mothers of Darkness and Die Die Die are playing tonight at the Winchester. They're both dope punk bands.

I really liked the Clash's take on reggae and their covers of Toots and the Maytells, Lee Scratch Perry etc numbers.
