The Clash En Español

So if you're disappointed with the list that Jim was kind enough to post, here's a different Clash tribute. Because I'm an idiot and didn't take Spanish in high school (I said, I live in SoCal, I can learn it any time, I'll take French now, cos I'm an idiot.), I can't say whether it's more enjoyable if you understand all the words. Naturally, you can make a lot of it out since you already know the lyrics. . . it's fun, and it comes with the original Clash versions, for comparison. All-in-all, not a bad listen, and probably even better if this your kind of thing. It's all very true to the original version. Enjoy!

Thanks to the outstanding individual who uploaded it in the first place!

Janie Jones from Pete and Carl

-who got back together for the time it takes to record Janie Jones. Grab it from the Rock Snob, here.

Janie Jones Single to Raise Strummerville Funds
Pete Doherty and Carl Barat are just a few of the artists currently working on a cover of the Clash's "Janie Jones" for release later this year. More details will be forthcoming about other artists who are also participating in this project which is intended to raise funds for our charity.

I don't know if I like it-- it lacks energy? It's like. . . let's make a tribute. . . to the, uh, Clash. . . we love them. . . so much. . . Sorry, I'm just sick of Pete Doherty/his antics, so now it's rubbing off on everything he does music-wise, which isn't fair. That's a cute picture though :) I'm excited to see who the other artists are.

Brian Setzer x2

I've been inspired to post some Brian Setzer, since the wonderful TWILIGHTZONE! has got up Brian Setzer's "Nitro Burnin' Funny Daddy" (and don't forget to tell him thank you!).

And if you like what you hear, pick up The Dirty Boogie from the Brian Setzer Orchestra.

Bring Me The Heads: The Pogues & Joe Strummer - Live, Dublin, 16.12.1991

-and some math.
Probably a bad picture to accompany the link, since you'll be getting the Pogues without Shane, but it's such a fun picture I can't help it.

Sprint on over to Jim's blog and get yourself some live
Joe and the Pogues. No Shane, but, as Jim says, it's "splendid" :)

Bring Me The Heads: The Pogues & Joe Strummer - Live, Dublin, 16.12.1991

Also, if you want info on the last post, check out entirety of the fabulous Chairman Ralph's comment
Other highlights include Mick's acoustic guitar work on "English Civil War" (which is pretty easy to pick out against Joe's choppy rhythmic style), and "Jail Guitar Doors," and "Koka Kola," among the tightest, tautest versions I've ever heard...while "Armagideon Time" is starting to take its own identity in the set (thanks to Mickey Gallagher's swirling organ rolls, and Topper's rhythmic flourishes: he understood dub like few other drummers did, before or since).

One other feature to bear in mind: of the 22 songs, six are from LONDON CALLING, an album that wouldn't appear for another three or four months (December '79/January '80, UK/US versions, respectively)...can you imagine a major band devoting nearly a third of its set to songs nobody had heard yet? Food for thought, but nobody had a problem hearing 'em on that night...because the Clash were moving forward, simple as that. 'Nuff said.

No Leafs or Thieves

Hey guys. Sorry that took so long. I labeled the tracks in iTunes, but it doesn't appear on the file name. If you stick them in iTunes or Windows Media Player, they're labeled. I'm not sure why that happened

Also, grab 12 Hits from Hell from Open Your Arms and Welcome, if you haven't got it yet. He's also got up two Gogol Bordello albums.

Thanks to the always fantastic Regnyouth for posting the link.

edit: If you can sit tight til tomorrow, I'll post the live Clash in one file with tracks labeled.

Also from Regnyouth, grab Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds' The Boatman's Call [sendspace, zip]

Spent all week trying to buy a mini fridge, my gosh. Finally got it and it had cat hair inside of it. But it works fine :p I'm a lazy lazy fuck and I haven't gotten my external HD plugged in, but when I do (I know, it takes all of two minutes) I'll put up some stuff from the La's.

As per usual, I can't find anyone to go to the Social D show with me (it really is an West Coast thing, I guess). Probably won't go this year, but I'm listening to Live at the Roxy now (moved in last Saturday and I just finished setting up my audio system) and it's making me want to go.

Anyway, grab some Morrissey from Ape Shall Never Kill Ape- he's got an EP from Japan up, as well as Viva Hate.

And- since I've been passing the link around to the Seu Jorge/David Bowie/Life Aquatic people I know, I had better post it here (and because I'm the unofficial PR person). Go grab The Life Aquatic Studio Sessions from Bring Me the Heads.

Check out Chairman Ralph's thoughts on LRW and live shows.

the Cure

Hey guys. I'm back at school, so posting will be more frequent. Summer's over, so back to work.

Here's Greatest Hits from the Cure. I didn't get a chance to rip it before I moved back cos I was distracted by the packing and Robert Smith's hair, so my lovely little sister uploaded itand sent it to me and kindly agreed to sharing the link. We've been listening to it in the car all summer. If you don't have it, you can grab it or buy it here. Enjoy!
