Brillaint band if you ignore Cut The Crap ( which wasn't too bad but just wasn't the clash IMO ) . But I could take or leave London Calling with the exception of a few songs , sandinista on the other hand was a brilliant record . The Clash and Give 'em enough rope are both superb , not abad song on either of those and I like Combat Rock with the exception of Should I stay or Should I go and Rock The Casbah ( overplayed songs so I've grown to dislike them :( )

To the Bat-poles!
They were brilliant and easily one of my favourite bands ever. Was listening to White Man In Hammersmith Palais only last night as it happens...

You're right about them being a brilliant band but my opinion is more or less the reverse of the your on those 2 albums bolded - London Calling rocks my world still and continues to come out of the sleeve regularly. Whereas Sandinista i found patchy and bit random really. Each to their own eh? :)
 
The Clash? Magnificent until their inevitable descent into the depths of Americana and chasing the dollar and expensive white powder i.e. not amphetamines.

Even after all these years The Clash energise me and move me.

RIP Joe Strummer.

The Clash

First record still cuts it for me.

White Riot, I 'm so bored with the USA. No one seems to make records like this in 21st century. Bumped into Strummer etc in Cardiff 1978 went to a dodgy pub. Great time ace band.

A primma donna at the time. Even when Strummer met him somewhere with a large bag of herb to iron out problems, Jones gave him short shrift.
Hmm. I thought it was JS who couldn't actually bring himself to ask MJ back, even though he admitted to Mick that sacking him was a huge mistake. This meeting was at Joe's place?

We are not worthy of The Clash, I listen to them almost everyday :) Their music is always with me in some format, and I am always with Joe in spirit x R.I.P please don't do a poll, I don't have time to hunt down any fuckers who diss em ;) AS!

We can go out mob-handed...the Last Gang In Town...and kill the Unbelievers before the Clampdown. :)

should be Oslovilla, really
I bought "London Calling" the other day and thought it was mostly art-student shit (with a few corking tracks). Is there better stuff out there then?

Possibly? But I think it's the exact same meeting, where Strummer was contrite (with the 'erb) admitting to Jones that he was wrong to sack him (even though he didn't have much choice, seeing Jones was so far up his own arse at the time) and there was Jones saying it's too late I'm in Big Audio Dynamite now. :mad:
