Re The Clash

From the Guardian;

Steve Jones
Sex Pistols and Indie 103.1 FM, LA

London Calling

I loved the Clash. They were formed because of seeing the Pistols, so they were never seen as a threat. The Pistols were number one and the Clash were number two, even if that was perceived to have changed further along the road. I like the way they played because it was the same style as I'm from, the same school of glam. Mick Jones was coming from the same place I was. I went up to Birmingham and played with them. It was all good in my book.

'London Calling' was their 'Anarchy in the UK'. I thought it was a depressing song but significant, because of the lyrics. You know, history gets twisted by those who weren't there. The Clash, they were there, we were there. I've had Mick on the blower for the radio show. And Joe would leave me these weird messages when he was alive, at 5am, saying how I was his fave guitar player. They were great guys. I liked them.

Dispatches
" #273. 10-03-06 LA CA: ...........Tomorrow, good ol’ Billy Bragg will come to the studio and track some music for season three of my show. Looking forward to seeing him play, it’s been awhile. He’s a good guy.

Dispatches Update
#274. 10-04-06 LA CA: 2311 hrs. Billy Bragg was so damn good. I have not seen him in some time. I’ve always liked his work. I have seen him play over the years and it’s always great. Today he played two songs for the show. He did two takes each and they were flawless so I am sure we have great footage for the show. That made my week watching him play.


so 2 songs for IFC were more fun than some time on the 'box. Ah well.
