Sound System Announcement

Post by TeddyB Not Logged In » 20 May 2013, 8:45pm

Sony is announcing tomorrow the September release of both Sound System and The Clash Hit Back. There will be a piece on The Clash in the Guardian on Friday. As expected, Sony is preparing a three month roll out ("a putsch" Mick called it). Mick is really excited about the sound. He says that he hears things he never heard before, joking that they must have brought in other guys when they were out of the studio. Again, joking. On that particular tip, Cut the Crap is not included. In related news, Charles Shaar Murray is writing a book about The Clash. Maybe he can get back his own for "Garageland," like revenge for the revenge.

I loved C. Shaar Murray's Hendrix book, because it wasn't just a rehashing of the guitarist's life. It took a balanced and witty look at his influences and influencees. Hopefully we'll get something similar.

I like "putsch" as a promotional term. It's going in the bank.

CTC is not included? Is This Is England and Sex Mad Roar in the boxset?

That's it, I'm out.

But seriously, I noticed the revamped site did not have it included either. Kinda lame to pretend it doesn't exist, even if it isn't getting pushed on the new release.

Anyway, I anxiously await the tracklisting. Thanks for the heads up, Teddy B.
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.

I made the same unfortunate observation here: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=7993&start=195

However, I thought Cut The Crap wasn't included. :shifty:

Nice to hear some movement on these various projects. Hopefully these marketing blitzes will get the music out to more people, which is always the point. I assume CtC wasn't included because the box set will just include download cards for the tribute album. :shifty:

More seriously, I get why CtC isn't being included - and why Mick would have no interest, I thought it was a classy enough gesture that he had TIE included on the singles box - but pretending it doesn't exist at all is a bit weak sauce.

Anyways, I look forward to a track listing and great to hear the feedback from Mick on sound quality. A real gold standard release on the audio fidelity side would be very welcome.

I don't think CTC should be included and I would not want it included. No Mick no Clash.

I'm trying to find what "The Clash Hit Back" refers to. Sounds like a review headline for the '82 gig that the tracklisting is based on. Anyone?
