I think GEER is great, but I noticed upon listening again that the production is sort of uneven.
Now that Gene has become an SRP, it's up to me to keep flying the GEER flag I guess. :shifty:
Stick your GEER flag up yer pole. Seriously though if you listen to the production on tracks like The Prisoner/Pressure Drop/(White Man) in Hammersmith Palais etc you can't tell me that GEER would not have sounded better.
I'm not a fan of the production on White Man, I think it's a bit tinny.
You’ve smoked too many tinnys tonight.
I always think of Gene with more irony.

Absolutely. Here's another collection of words:

Table salt (spoon hinge)
Octopus (Ukraine)
St. Petersburg (arms)
Ginger beer (cauliflower)
Pat Sajak (PSak)
Lamp post (self evident)
Florida Timeshare (ditto)
Heraclitus (EMI)
Developers (Developers Developers)
Boogie With Your Children

When i listen to the Clash its usually sandinista(thank god for the ss-remaster), sbmc (now pretty much replaced by Soundsystem Extras #2) or selected live stuff like Chaos in NY. I Always come back to those and its still an exciting listen.

The Sound System remaster made me apreciate geer a lot more, because i only had a terrible old CD Version.apart from the obvious crackers its still the most un-interesting Clash Album for me

Holy shit, lyrics sheets!
"The only thing that really occurs to me that I can say on this is to point out how fascinating it is that the Hassan-i-Sabbah archetype keeps turning up over and over again ... He disappears up into the mountains and is never seen again. Believe me, he'll never be seen again. He'll live forever because of that."

Yes! Now for a few evening courses at your local University for some Strummer dialect lessons.

Agreed. It sounds very weak compared to GEER.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

This boxset better be the shit or I am denouncing all of you at the next party congress.
Don’t get your hopes up for the live cuts. They are basically unmixed and have all sorts of level issues. Even the ones that were released on Clash on Broadway and FHTE are far worse in this package.

That was hard to fathom considering the care that went into everything else.
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.

If I remember correctly, Teddy said the inclusion of live tracks was an after thought.

I mean, the Clash just generally have treated live material as an afterthought, no? I think our interest in live material is a peculiar fixation compared to the fans en masse.
