Topic: The Clash

Met them last night at the pop up store opening.
Mick as usual was an absolute gent ,Paul & Topper also in good spirits.
Decent turn out , Jonathan Ross,Don Letts,Glen Matlock,Pennie Smith,Carl Barratt,Julian Temple,Johhny Green,Robin Banks,Ray Gange,Lucinda Strummer,john cooper clarke,.

The last real band,there ll not be anything like them again.
Born from the social situation at the time ,and the bland music scene..Can anyone see any "revolutions" in the future?
Will we see gang culture ever again? Punks,skins,mods,rockers,teds ?
I loved them days.
Yesterday in London theres lots of people looking victorian ,even handlebar moustaches,and matching gear.
Whats that all about?

Re: The Clash

Good point Cuts
I think alot, but dont have a lot to say.
Main complaint of the wife!!
Back in Russia today ,so a bit more available time to work on the post count.
Definately more of a lurker .
Like this site though ,a good read.
Its kinda like my pub here in Russia ,the different conversations and subjects..without the people.
Back to the Clash...everyone at the do was dropped off outside the venue..except Paul,Mick and Topper,who were dropped off down the street and walked down,knowing theyd get loads of fan attention,was clearly deliberate...and a great touch .
