Sad news RIP Mickey.
I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.

A very important figure in the history of the band and his production on the first album left an indelible mark on the aesthetic of punk.
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.

Cheers for that, a great read. I had no idea he'd been an anti-Trump activist in recent times!

Just thinking that there are not many Clash producers left:

Mickey Foote, Sandy Pearlman, Guy Stevens, Mikey Dread...all now gone.

Just off the top of my head...but that would leave Glyn Johns, Mick, Lee Perry, and "Jose Unidos"!

...but the guys who helped the sonic shape of TC, GEER, LC, and parts of S! are now gone.

Crazily enough, I think Johns is older than any of them.
