I was crushed when it happened, coming out of my littler Punk Rawk end of teenage years. . . Now, I'm nostalgic.  I rarely listen to the Clash or the Mescaleros (mostly just listen to NPR or Pandora), but have a soft spot for Strummer's mixing of political statement, art and style. I like to think he could have had a great late era career, especially with the right producer. Maybe I'll pull up some Mescaleros or Sandinista.
WHAT?

TIL (thanks Hutch)...Feb 7th is  International Clash Day

DC council even approved it

This is anti-racist, anti-fear.
This is pro-solidarity, pro-unity, pro-inclusion. This is a public service announcement with GUITARS.

This is International Clash Day 2018, and all day long, all across the globe, we're celebrating music as a tool for social consciousness, and a band that made it sound so damn good.
