Re: Nothing about the war in Ukrain?

https://www.wiesenthal.com/about/news/wiesenthal-center-protests-25.html I've raised this and the Azov battalion with friends and been told that my information was out of date and no longer applicable. It appears that once Putin invaded any previous or current Ukrainian Nazi links became irrelevant.

Re: Nothing about the war in Ukrain?

https://youtu.be/_nn1RuRduHQ Thanks. He makes the counter narrative sound quite convincing. I posted some stuff about Ukraine on here at the beginning of the war. But as time went on I gave up discussing it (not just here but in general) as I found that I only end up getting called a Putin apologis...

Re: Wanted: WAKE UP Miner's Benefit EP+Booklet (1987)

I would like a copy of it my self. I've got a couple of copies of Wake Up fanzine in my archive but unfortunately not this one. It's on YouTube with a link to the booklet. The booklet is available to read and share but I can't download it either. Yes. that's the one, all right. I don't really under...

It was news to me as well. It seems to be a fairly common occupation for 'rock stars' offspring.

Mick - Live gig (sort of)

It goes against my principles to share a Daily Mail link but haven't seen this anywhere else and thought it may be of interest.

20 years is just hard to believe. Probably a day never goes by when I don't think about Joe/The Clash.
Same here.

Re: Colston Hall Bristol June 10 1980 RESTORED

Thanks for this. I was at the gig its an excellent sounding performance but although brilliant probably my least favourite Clash live experience almost certainly due to it being in a seated venue. On another note some of the graphics that you use for your video that have been taken from BMC don't r...

Re: (Another) New Strummer book

Anybody read this yet? Yes, I have. It's an academic tome that is very thoroughly researched but in places a little hard work to read. Extensive analysis of Joe's quotes and lyrics. Has loads of references and footnotes. I found some of it thought provoking from a personal perspective. Fairly decen...

Re: Hey limeys

The Boss is home again, which means the tv has to be on to watch the funeral. Among the inane things I've heard from CBC personnel there, as the coffin rolls by we were told that that's the queen in her coffin. Which may sound stupidly obvious unless you know that at royal funerals there are always...

Re: Hey limeys

One rich old lady dies and what feels like the whole world stops. Over the coming winter months many more old ladies are going to die and virtually no one will attend their funerals. £100 millions plus for one funeral. I wonder how many of those other old ladies we could save if only that was share...

honestly, I couldn't give two shits what he thinks about anything. Let him take care of his wife, and make shitty music, I really don't care what he says or does at all. His relevance expired decades ago.
Nailed it.
