No I sent you Bruce Springsteen backed by the Swans live at the Mud Club, stupid.
Haha jokes on you. It wasn't Swans backing Bruuuce at that gig, it was Wire. And it smokes.
Well you must've got it from someone else as I don't like Wire or any of their old punk rock nonsense.
Hey Wire isn't punk rock at all. But as that Mud Club gig proves, they are a tight little R&B outfit.
They remind me of old time dancing.
I love how they re worked "Highway Patrolman" into an uptempo Latin flavored groove with hints of Krautrock and a bit of post-WWII hard-bop jazz.

That's my favourite and the 12'' remix where they throw in a little skiffle for good measure.

"Well hi everybody ain't it groovy"

Next up : US Festival, San Bernardino CA : May 28, 1983.

So Steve Wonkysack of (Bad) Apple Corp has the rights to the video footage and Clash fans await a release for all eternity.
This is taken from my old cassette tape of the audience recording as the superior sounding video footage available is incomplete. However after lots of remixing and remastering this is sounding bloody great to my ears. This should supplant the version on the Megalist as that one is at a much lower bitrate. Flex/Ratty are you paying attention at the back. ;)

Flac/Mp3 here : Enjoy!

Seriously Marky, I need a new server for all this stuff. I can't keep up - and that Gothenburg show is new to me, too :mrgreen:

Happy birthday mate sorry it's late. Hope you had a good one.

I'm really pleased with the sound on this US Festival. Still plenty more to come.

Too bad we don’t have any tape of the backstage shenanigans, like say Kosmo screaming at Bernie that if he wants to hold a press conference demanding Van Halen give some of their pay to charity, that he should bloody hold it himself. What a palaver. No wonder in some of the band’s own versions of their history it was the end. If it was fiction, you couldn’t write a better end of the band than the U.S. Festival!

The only part of that conferance I like is that Joe refused to play Bernie's game and turned his back on the affair thus forcing Kosmo to answer the questions.

I know I may be in the minority but I thought they were poor at the US Festival. The fire had gone out and the drummer wasn't that good. They should have hired Rick Buckler when Terry left again.
I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.

Well don't tell Matey about this! Yeah, I've always the Pete Howard was waaaay too techy for the Clash (Clash Mk II - fuggetaboutit). But I don't know that Buckler could cut all the styles (great as he is), not even as well as Terry managed. And wasn't he still with the Jam touring 'The Gift' in September '83 or had they called it a day by then as well?

Was over for the Jam in December 82, Buckler could have done anything, 100 times better than Terry. Listen to Funeral Pyre and imagine Terry attempting it. It would have sounded like someone throwing a drum kit down the stairs.

I never used to think much of this show either but listening back it's way better than I remember. And consider Pete in front of that huge crowd for the first time. His drumming is extremely solid.

Oh I'm not denying Rick's one of the greats, but could he pull off reggae and modern funk/hip hop as well as Terry sometimes managed? And anyway, we know why they picked Terry - he was a known quantity and they needed someone to do the gigs in nine days. Shit, if they'd really wanted to go balls out with probably the best session drummer on the scene, the coulda asked Mark Brzecki before he was in Big Country (which, incidentally, Rick Buckler was playing in briefly after the Skids broke up and Stuart and Bruce got Tony and Mark and nailed the sound).

Dave Ruffy from The Ruts wouldve pulled it off.
