Re: Mick Jones late period Clash gear

I wonder if Mick was ever tempted to hit the distinctive big short echo repeat chord... then break into a completely different song?

Mick brings back the short echo repeat on the intro to Man That is Dynamite, very Bottom Libe
Seems unlikely it was ever accompanied by the same cheer.

I can't wait to get to Denmark Street with all these new additions to my vocabulary.

Probably not a tech question, but what makes the opening chord of The Bottom Line so distinctive? He hits it and everyone knows what the song is!
It'll be that short echo on long repeat. Pretty distinctive.
Simple when you know! ADSR envelopes! Yeah!

Re: Mick Jones late period Clash gear

The Roland guitar was used on C'mon Every Beatbox. I heard Bobby Gillespie ask Mick about the sound in a radio interview. You don't think there might have been a financial incentive behind Mick's conversion to Fender (for live shows) in more recent times? There is at least one promotional inerview v...

Re: Mick Jones late period Clash gear

Fender gifted Mick a Strat prior to the making of London Calling. While doing the research that led to this knowledge, I read that Mick had never been seen playing the Gibson ES 295 rockabilly guitar commonly associated with that record (and part of recent London exhibition) live. Maybe not withThe ...

Re: Mick Jones late period Clash gear

Great thread! Albeit one I don't feel I have sufficient depth of knowledge to be able to contribute much to. Particularly interested to hear Mick often played Strats in the studio. Is my memory playing tricks on me, or did the Electraglide get a brief unveiling in Clash colours? I feel like I might ...

It's just a traditional folk ditty, is it not? I'll admit I did not know the name Johnny Horton.

Re: New Youtube BAD

I wasn't there, but Mick's Keith Richards resemblance around 1978 suggests he may have just cocaine. Rarely a good thing; and, I suspect, the downfall of many a second album.
