I love dub & reggae. Like a lot of ska.
As long as there is no dancehall or ragga, that's awful shite.

Surely a nod to Jamaican music? Sung version of song on one side and dub version on the other.
That didn't occur to me (about the different sides). I just let it play through. I really need to own a copy of this.

Fair point on Jamaican music. I'm thinking there's a bit of both there. I need to listen again.

Seriously though, the version of career opportunities near the end is absolutely adorable.

I realised I never posted in here again after my three listens. It took a long time to listen to it again and again (I haven't gone back to it since the third listen). From what I remember, there was some great stuff on it and bits that I didn't like at all. It struck me as a bit of a White Album thing - something that you could really get into and embrace the eclecticism or that you could find insufferable. I could be persuaded to listen to this again.

Anyway, the reason I came into this thread was to post this:
Year Zero: The Clash in Trinity 1977

This is great


Total on the edge of falling apart playing, Paul concentrating SO HARD on the bassline, Joe just about managing to spit out the entire thesis-length of lyrics and Mick Jones with full on guitar effects up to 11 overwhelming everything, amazin'. Topper is doing grand though.

Really interested in the next segment as well...

That's fucking great. I'm gonna start telling people my band is like The Clash, cos we too are completely inconsequential to modern pop culture, and usually totally on the edge of falling apart

Narrated by Chuck D


looks like a fairly standard uncritical stan podcast for the US market though
This actually turned out to be really well done, went relatively deep. Chuck D is great in it

Urgh, this kind of crap devalues decent music.*







*so should be fine for London Calling arf arf amirite??
