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

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

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.

Happy Joe Strummer Day!



"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."
