I'm pretty sure I remember reading something by Lester Bangs on The Clash and how they had a copy of "Behind the Green Door" on the tour bus or something like that. Does anyone else remember the reference? I think it may have been in the same written piece that talks about Topper watching Star Wars while sick and coughing, on the bus while the rest of them were sleeping or something. Somebody please say they know what I'm talking about. It's driving me crazy.

I remember the story of the tour bus and the groans when Star Wars came on and then the cheers when King Creole was playing.

You don't remember the Behind the Green Door part, though?

It may have not been in a Lester Bangs essay. I remember the part about Mick getting ready to read The Subterraneans by Jack Kerouac and Lester instead handed a copy of his Love is a Dog from Hell by Charles Bukowski, but I don't think the Star Wars reference was in the same essay.

1980 Albums. I got 8/10.

Knowing the names of Eric Clapton albums is nothing to be proud of. ;)
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

I was so IMCT-centered that I simply could not see the condom as anything but "pastrami."
