Just a quick question, at some point in the late 70s/early 80s my dad went to a clash gig and pinched a plastic light blue flag they had hanging around the venue, it's got a stencilled on picture in black and under it, it says the clash. just wondering if anyone has any idea when they used these at gigs and if anyone has ever seen one sell on ebay(as much as it it pains me, i think i may have to sell it due to well lack of money).

thank you

Celebrating Joe [16 Jan 2008|11:02pm]

On the 5th Anniversary of Joe's passing, I couldn't find a thing going on where I live...would have liked to have sat with other folks who loved him, listening to his music, drinking a few and being optimistic.  Fortunately, I could watch "Let's Rock Again" and celebrate the Joe-ness of life.  His legacy lives on.

I worried after Joe passed what the world would be like without his conscience and his passion in the music industry but after almost five years, if you look around, there are all kinds of musicians doing some solid social commentary and paying respects to the great roots of music - Bedouin Soundclash, and Bright Eyes to name a couple of good bands.

Anyone here got suggestions for new or current music that holds a candle to the passion and talent that was Joe Strummer?

BTW: Had a great treat today at the cinema: The Diving Bell and The Butterfly ends with "Ramshackle Day Parade" 
There is little that makes me happier than when someone pays tribute to the Great Joe Strummer [R.I.P]

Remembrance [22 Dec 2007|05:56pm]

What will you/did you do to pay tribute to Joe today?

I'll be watching "The Future is Unwritten" and toasting him with Guinness. Also made a tribute post on my LJ.

Joe Strummer as guest dj [07 Feb 2007|10:15am]

I posted this elsewhere, but I thought you might not want to miss this. It take some time to load (due to overwhelming demand), but keep trying. Joe plays Junco Partner with "mangled lyrics" and plays some favorites of his.

Happy Joe Strummer Day! [22 Dec 2006|11:31pm]


"Life's about friendships, the way you love your partner, the way you care for your children. That is what life is about. Not anything about earning a hundred zillion dollars because you toured America more than anyone else. I want life to be about creativity."

“If you ain't thinkin' about man and God and law, then you ain't thinkin' about nothin'.
Does anybody know what Joe's views on religion was?
Other than that (I know this one is old but...) does anybody want to share some quotes with me?
What do you think of "walker" and "straight to hell"?

Let's Rock Again [29 Jul 2006|11:15pm]

So has anybody else watched Dick Rude's documentary Let's Rock Again, about the tour for Global a-go go?

The footage of him walking down the beach in Atlantic City resonated for me. The night I heard Joe was dead, I was down in the outer banks of the Carolinas, coming home from a wedding in Savannah.

When I heard, I slipped on my docs and went out and walked along the ocean, and screamed Clash songs at the Atlantic.

Yeah, I know it has nothing to do with the film, but it dredged up that memory again.

This was posted today on Billboard.com:

"The 1980 film starring the Clash, "Rude Boy," will make its DVD debut Aug. 1 via Epic/Legacy, Billboard.com has learned. The fictional documentary centers around a disillusioned sex shop worker (Ray Gange) who quits his job to roadie for the Clash in 1978. The musical footage was filmed during the band's Clash on Patrol and Sort It Out tours of the United Kingdom.

The DVD rounds up performances of "English Civil War" and "White Riot" that never made the original film, plus versions of "Clash City Rockers" and "Tommy Gun" recorded on the BBC's "Something Else" show.

Other special features include interviews with Gange, filmmakers Jack Hazan and David Mingay and Clash road manager Johnny Green, four deleted scenes, the original theatrical trailer and a photo gallery.

As previously reported, director Julian Temple is at work on a documentary about late Clash vocalist/guitarist Joe Strummer, which will be "narrated" by Strummer via scores of interviews and archival recordings."

The New One [28 May 2006|08:10pm]

[ mood | Whew! ]

Hey Strummer-fans! I'm Zoe and I'm the newest addition to this humble, little community you got here. Very cool place. Anyhow, I joined a Paul and Mick community, so I thought, "Hey! Joe Strummer was my first favorite Clash member and he rocks an unusually high amount, so why didn't I join a community dedicated to him, yet?" Now, without further nonsense:

(P.S. I'm getting Streetcore in the mail sometime this week. Check my journal if you want to read how it is! But, please excuse the angst-ridden stuff that I already have in there. It could be a tad messy...)

Letsagitabitarockin' [18 Apr 2006|05:11pm]

wow this place has been dead...
I blame myspace

anyways did anybody here see the movie Rude Boy?
I thought it was awesome
theirs also allot of good live footage in it

allot of the stories told in westway to the world
are depicted in it as well

I also read that before being called strummer that
he used Woody as an alias
after woody guthrie (naturally)

but back on the main subject
-Watch Rude Boy-
