I also can't remember the three guitars on Hate and War but would have to recheck that one.
Yeah, there's 3 guitars but he got it wrong about the line mentioning "Greeks", as we established it was "walking grease" a while back.
Marcus Grey thought it was Greeks too, didn't he? I remember being quite young trying to figure out how he got to that conclusion.
To be fair the first Clash songbook printed the lyric as "kebab greek" which it sounds nothing like.
Oh yeah, that was the line. I wonder if Grey got it from the songbook.
Inder:
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

A similar book already exists, Tony Fletcher "The Clash: The Music That Matters"
https://www.amazon.com/Clash-Music-That ... 1780383037
Regarding Popoff's book, I saw a preview on Google Books, nice packaging and nice photos but nothing new. Personally I was hoping for a more specialized book.
Has any one read the Fletcher book? Is it just the same old info?
I have that book, it is a book which analyzes not only the songs of the albums but also singles, EP, compilations and live.
There is also a section that analyzes the DVD and some brief mention of the post-Clash career, a good paperback at a low price, but no particular new informations, you can see a preview on Google Books. Popoff's book seems to me much more polished graphically, a perfect book for a gift.

“London’s Burning (Live)” with no further details of its provenance. Don't forget it's a mono mix.
"NIBBLED TO DEATH BY AN OKAPI"

Yes, I know, I have no chance of having personal news, so I take what I find in the books for good. In this case from Keith Topping's "The Complete Clash".
