Good to see this on the blue.
It was the 26th anniversary of London Calling's release three days ago. Joe Strummer'll be three years dead this Thursday.
December's a conflicting month for fans of The Clash.

Interesting, but....Roman Holiday and Duran Duran in a section labelled "London Punks"? Dear oh dear. Guy clearly knows more about photography than music or fashion.

Very cool stuff. Anyone who followed punk into the later 80's might like Trent Nelson's photos too: Trent Nelson: Punk rock 1984-1995

How crazy ... an audience of 50 people. I know that's de rigeur for all bands starting out, but it's funny to think of the Clash playing for such an intimate audience. It's like thinking of U2 playing at their school talent show.
