Joe Strummer's Final Album Released
 
 
 Friends and family toasted the late punk pioneer Joe Strummer at the launch of his last album.
 
 Mick Jones, Strummer's former bandmate in The Clash, was among guests at the event at London's White Cube Gallery Thursday night to mark the release of "Streetcore." Other guests included actor Keith Allen, comic Paul Kaye, actress Sadie Frost and her former husband, ex-Spandau Ballet star Gary Kemp.
 
 Strummer's widow, Lucy, helped launch the Strummerville charity, which aims to help youth groups, organizations and individuals buy instruments, studio and rehearsal time.
 
 Members of reggae band UB40 also attended, as did photographer Pennie Smith, famed for her striking cover shot for The Clash's 1979 album "London Calling."
 
 Strummer, who made his name expressing his politics through his music, died on Dec. 22 after a heart attack. He was 50.

I just watched most of the documentary "Shane MacGowan: If I Should Fall From Grace."  And again I am astounded that MacGowan outlived Joe Strummer.  Life makes little sense, man.

Well thanks for the reminders........ The Strummer album comes out on the 21st over here.
 
 If anyone is interested in a copy, I got one of his rare albums from game exchange a couple of weeks ago:

 It has island hopping on, which he did as an extra (not on the playlist) encore song at his last 930 show.

Mankie,I don't get down that way much.Don't suppose your going to B/more for the BJM are you  ;)  I'd say I'd give it to someone who's going and then they can burn it for you,but i'm not so sure how well that works with you guys.

Agreed,a good one for any collection Not unless you have some good bootlegs or a recommendation of something in particular,I have access to most releases.Mixes are always welcome.I'll bring a copy on Friday and you can check it out.
