The Story of the CLASH Part 13

Various Artists | This Is Rockabilly ClashWell, never thought I'd say I'd be tired of the Clash, but......this has been a REAL experience, remembering stuff I had long forgotten, hearing stuff I haven't heard years, the FUCKING FAILURE OF THE "OUTSIDE BROADCASTS" discs that I had meant to  be the centepiece of this series (We'll get em for ya yet, my man "sonic" is up to the task!)

Well, what have I got left? I should have put this up maybe in part 1, but didn't know if it REALLY fit there......it's a 2 disc set, documenting the 1976 "Anarchy Tour"......basically it showcases the Pistols which is wh I didn't post it earlier, but the Clash turn in some wonderful, rare performances as well (as do the Buzzcocks, for that matter), so we'll stick it on here at the end.

Quite an interesting set is "This is Rockabilly Clash" in which several rockabilly artists (of note? I am not expert in the genre) take on various Clash tunes, The Pistoleers example, taking on the reggae number "Bankrobber", or the Caravans take on "Jail Guitar Doors".....quite interesting indeed, and perhaps some material for "Outside Broadcasts 9/10 whenever they are created!)

Whle searching around the net I happened to find what is allegedly the first public appearance by the Clash, 8/29/76....no idea if this is true or not, but it has to be CLOSE to thier first and actually I'm quite surprised I didn't already have it.....haven't even had a chance to listen to it yet, but as a historical curiosity, it would seem essential

"The Sandinista Project" is a two-disc tribute album.....you know I'm not a huge fan of most tribute albums, but this one is of interest because the Clash were just so damn influential. Most of the performers here are ones I havne't heard of, with an occasional Wreckless Eric or Smithereens track thrown in just to make sure you're still paying attention.

"Burning London" is a more traditional tribute album, with covers from artists as diverse as Ice Cube, No Doubt, Rancid (who literally would NOT EXIST were it not for the Clash, and that is not a put-down of Rancid, a band I really liked), Cracker, and Third Eye Blind.....interesting, interestin, interesting......entertaining? Well, you be the judge.

OK, to review, I'v given you all the CLASH I have I think......hope I didn't forget anything.......there is one more little surprise I've been saving  back, lets just call it "The Surprise", if you want to know what it is, download it, you'll see why I don't want to let on HERE as to what it is.......I've shared a few links with you also, where you can get even MORE Clash stuff, I evenan on getting a bit more myself, so if you stumble on one that is especially good or interesting, send it along......this Clash series can be a semi-ongoing thing for as long as there is more good interesting Clash material out there.

Hope you enjoyed yourselves.....I hope I did at least a FAIR job of telling the "story" of one of my very favorite bands (and as I've said, SOMETIME I'll do the same with Hendrix, with Roxy Music, with Nirvana, and with Radiohead, all of whom I have at least as much music from, and all of whom served significant roles in my life as did the Clash......but the Clash are special, my "coming of age" band, and, of course, THE ONLY FUCKIN BAND THAT MATTERS!

See ya soon with something else, (Hawkwind, actually!)
