      I was a little bit to young for going to concerts here in germanys province. If i had lived in Hamburg i think i had saw them on a concert. I saw Strummer in 99 in Hamburg, i was a little bit disapointed, no merchandise and only 150 people but it was a wonderfull concert. Before the concert started, we were standing there at the bar. I think oh this guy who is he, another guy came in, hm i think i know him and then it was clear, it was the Toten Hosen (german punkband, well known) and as Joe and the Mescaleros played the Hosen and the audience arm in arm, tears in our eyes, we were singing/shouting all together. Old punkrockcomrades.

          A lot of people don´t know that an Sandinista Light album is existing. It´s from Ellen Foley and called Spitirt Of St. Louis. The Clash wrote some songs and played all.

          The first 3 minutes 36 seconds from a german show.

            Her next album was an interesting effort. Spirit Of St Louis was produced by Mick Jones of The Clash – although he was credited as “My Boyfriend”. It was a fascinating album with most of the songs written by Jones and Joe Strummer and another Clash alumni Tymon Dogg. Recorded in London the mood of the record was broadly European, with a chamber music approach to some quirky pop songs. It still stands up well today but at the time the style of the album didn’t do much for American radio and the public and its sales were mediocre.
            Around this time Foley could also be heard singing on the Clash’s Hitsville UK from their extraordinary triple album Sandinista.
            Ironically the most commercially successful element of her collaboration with Jones was the song Should I Stay Or Should I Go which he wrote about their relationship and which became a hit on the Clash’s Combat Rock album.

              The Clash is one of those bands that can be both raw, and refined, with equal success. Not many bands can pull that off, and fewer can pull it off as well as The Clash.

              From their earlier "Ramones inspired" work, all the way to Combat Rock, they proved to be a truly multifaceted and competent band adept at playing in a variety of genres while still maintaining their identity as The Clash.

              One of my favorite tunes off of Sandinsta:

              Corner soul

              http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7H8nr8J-WF4

              From the raw, simple power of tunes like "Know your rights", to the more refined and heartfelt tunes like "The Street Parade", the boys always manage to provide a great tune to accommodate any mood I may be in, at any given moment.

              Awesome band, and I still listen to them to this very day.

                  Trailer for the rise and fall of the Clash

                  The Rise and Fall of the Clash features previously unseen footage of the band at work and at play, interviews with the individual band members and with those who knew them well, and traces the downward trajectory of a band who were at one point "the biggest band in the world." This is not a film that pulls any punches, but neither does it overlook the life-changing effect that The Clash brought to so many. Over 90 minutes it paints the fascinating inside story of rival, treachery and betrayal, and the internal band dynamics and managerial interference that ultimately led The Clash to self-destruct.

                  In mist or cloud, on mast or shroud,
                  It perched for vespers nine;
                  Whiles all the night, through fog-smoke white,
                  Glimmered the white moonshine."

                  `God save thee, ancient Mariner,
                  From the fiends that plague thee thus! -
                  Why look'st thou so?' -"With my crossbow
                  I shot the Albatross."

                                Ive got a documentary dvd 'Westway to the World'. Theres a classic scene where drummer Topper Headon, looking worse for wear, is being interviewed about his exit from The Clash.

                                Topper: So Joe threatened to throw me out the band if I didnt stop taking err certain 'substances'...
                                Interviewer: So what happened then?
                                Topper: Well I just carried on taking them like....
