Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments Second time round then for The Clash and again, I have no idea what was nommed or what won last time, but I am reasonably sure I could hazard a fairly accurate guess.

Let's see if we can get a few of the more obscure tracks in to make it interesting.

Noms as ever close 10 pm Sunday evening, don't forget your youtube link (I may need to have a word with the Duke about the playlist when the time comes).

Enjoy the weekend folks, no gigs for me this week, but a fairly manic spell just coming up soon with the main draw possibly being the interestingly named Chubby Thunderous Bad Kush Masters - what a time to be alive :-)

Well, going by the host's request, i'll avoid the obvious ones, & plump for this one, as I've never heard of it, till now:

Tech XXIII  | 6727 comments coincidentally, this week a friend sent a link to me about a project by the bbc who are preparing an 8 part detailed history of the clash for podcast release. they are looking for people who were in attendance at half a dozen of their most iconic shows, one of which was the apollo 1978 riotous event. being there, i fired in an email with a recollection of the night, and this has been forwarded to the bbc for consideration. if anyone was at any of the following, or feels they may have something to contribute, generally, contact,

roxy, london - jan 1 1977
schwabinger, munich - oct 4 1977

if anyone objects to my inclusion of the dub, i will change it - way i see it, it's just further information and folks should just vote for the vocal version. i just think they belong together!

I agree, so no objections here :-)

Gordon (skiiltan) | 2940 comments After Rob (and the technical tidy)...

If we're really going for more obscure tracks I feel like I should be nominating Lose This Skin. I'd like to nominate The Magnificent Seven or Straight to Hell (the much, much better double-A-side of Should I Stay or Should I Go?). But I'm going to go for this collaboration with Allen Ginsberg, partly in the - probably vain - hope of making Lez see the error of her ways.

Good try, Gordon. I might give it a vote for Mr. Ginsberg’s contribution. ;-)

Tech XXIII  | 6727 comments was listening to this on youtube, believing it just to be a y.t. comp, didn't know it was a thing, but it is a thing (not an awfully official thing) and i've got one from here for £8.25 inc p&p!

'this is dub clash'

message 20: by Tech XXIII (new)

Tech XXIII  | 6727 comments gordon, i also thought 'lose this skin' - wondrous piece of work, but more like a guest appearance really - typical of the clash's generosity tho'!

been a hot week for me re. the clash - received and have replied to email from bbc on the clash podcasts, fleshing out a few details - they've asked me to provide my phone number for a chat, so mibbe i'll get a wee feature on it? who knows?

lets get some more songs in, c'mon it's the mighty clash (les?)

Noms are closed now but we'll wait for the playlist before opening the voting.

Er…& it's 4 votes each I think...voting ends on Thursday evening.


message 25: by Tech XXIII (new)

Tech XXIII  | 6727 comments okeedokee,

great interesting list, heavy on 'combat rock' (nowt wrong with that, but no 'know your rights'? - arguably their best ever single!), and nothing from the first 2 albums? however, didn't need to listen to list, but doing so anyway,

4 - complete (produced? by scratch - allegedly looked in to the studio, twiddled a couple of knobs, then left - classic anyroads!)
3 - armagideon - (always wished the clash would've released a complete reggae based album)
2 - england - ('sandinista', even after all these years still throws up surprises and sounds like it could have been recorded yesterday!)
1 - ghetto - (combat rock, even 'the hits', which suffer from overplay, are great songs on a superb album, which should have been their last)

every song here worthy of pointage!

The winners this week: Brass Neck, Tim, tech and Sj - see, how easy was that? :-)

If anyone wants to go and count back all the positions feel free, knock yourself out - me? I have got a life to get on with.

But yep, some good songs there, good round. I never did see The Clash, but I did see Joe Strummer at one of the V Festivals, that one was great fun.

an appropriate outcome (or mischief by steve - you choose)!

the clash were always a great show, purveyors of classic singles and albums (except 'cut the crap' which was mince!). as highly as i rate them i never liked or bought anything by the component members after they split!
