We Are The Clash is a bit too slow and synth-y to sound too much like Sham 69. And the backing vocals... they're almost out of some science fiction film where a dictator gathers his entire nation into one gigantic auditorium, and they scream out in anguish before he presses the button to have them destroyed by his killer robots.

I hope you don't like the Pist. Nobody should like the Pist.


EDIT: Oh wait, they're from Connecticut, never mind. Either way they still suck.

The Clash II sound like Sham 69.

Cheap lousy NME reviews are not truth. They sound fuck all alike oh so "We Are The Clash" has a shouty chorus they sound like Sham 69 ....

Ironically Sham 69 used a drum machine when they reformed later on. Oh they sound like Clash II.

For me it is not the 'songs' that sound the same it is the 'yobbishness' of the vocals.

The backing vocals you mean on the chorus. And they don't feature on the whole album."Are You Ready For War" "This Is England" "North and South" "Fingerpoppin'" does not sound like Sham does it.

Maybe "Do It Now" and "We Are The Cash" .....but why the Sham comparison why not "Angelic Upstarts" or "Cockney Rejects"?

Now there are two bands which are reasonable to liken together musically. Cock Sparrer is better, by my estimation, but Shock Troops ain't exactly worlds apart from Sham 69's oeuvre.
The reasons I like Cock Sparrer and dislike Sham 69...

A) Cock Sparrer had much better tunes and lyrics.
B) Cock Sparrer had much better guitars.
C) Colin from Cock Sparrer had a pretty emotive voice, with a touch of the Steve Marriotts about it. Pursey just sounds yobbish, and has no real tone or inflection in his voice.
D) Jimmy Pursey
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.
