"Raise a toast to St. Joe Strummer / I think he might’ve been / our only decent teacher."

Thanks, I will check this out.

I sat with Joe several times and told him stories about war, when he was interested in ideas about immigration and cross-culturization. We talked about a lot of songs that ended up on the second Mescaleros album that dealt with some of these issues. Wonderful, sweet and lovely guy.

I'd forgotten about these guys, but they had a table with samplers (and information about the documentary) at Billy Bragg's show at SXSW. It had fallen off my radar, but I'm excited to see the preview. I hope they get the documentary available in the US market soon.

I'm not sure Strummer's spirit can die, but I sure as hell know it shouldn't.

Thanks for posting this, Crane Shot.

I've been trying to find every decent interview I can with the man. Utterly utterly amazing, brilliant guy.


JOE STRUMMER WILL NEVER GIVE IN TO THE ZOMBIES OF DEATH!

Joe Strummer lives!
