I just can’t get it up for combat….

The Clash ended with Sandinista

I mean if I hear should I stay or should I go or rock the casbah one more time I will blow my brains out

So I get that...and kinda feel the same way about those songs
...although I do love that 12inch instrumental of rock the casbah

but there are some really great other tracks
Know your rights is one of my all-time favorite clash songs
Straight to hell is a straight-up classic, live versions of this are killer (and an excellent sample for M.I.A. - Paper Planes)
Car Jamming!  I love when he's screaming: "Hey fellas, Lauren bacall, In a car jam, Yeah I don't believe it"
and this great line too "And what is that,  funk multi-national Anthem rocking from a thousand King kong cassette decks"

and Red angel Dragnet...Boardie Kosmo sings vocal!
Getto Defendant with Allen Ginsberg is also one of my favs

and the last song is such a great way to end an album: death is a star

I always come back to this, but the only Clash album they haven't done anything deluxe with is "Give 'Em Enough Rope" I personally think it's a great album but apparently the band weren't enthralled with the recording process and commercial sound for that one, so there is probably nothing extra floating around.  And I'm guessing all of the Sandinista! era recordings got put out as well..

so instead of 3 slabs it's 12 ;)

this is a great quote

Despite the positive critical reception, Sandinista! was a flop compared to its Platinum-selling predecessor and spawned no hit singles. Wry in retrospect, Mick Jones claimed he “always saw it as a record for people who were on oil rigs or Arctic stations that weren’t able to get to the record shops regularly.” Not exactly a huge market.

Can I just say that it's killing me that the Mountain Goats are finally playing in Tallahassee?


(I mean, they've played there before, but, man!)

David Gilmour has hinted maybe—just maybe—the band will get back together to tour. At least, he hasn’t taken it completely off the table.

“We haven’t even thought about doing live shows, but I suppose it’s a possibility,” said Gilmour in a recent interview. “I haven’t done one in such a long time, but who knows – I don’t know.”

I know… it’s kind of unbelievable as I really think he retired with the full intention of staying retired

Didn’t he make an appearance at a Lucius show last week?

I get the sense he is bored…

A Pink Floyd tour after nearly 30 years seems utterly pointless but a solo tour could be possible

While reading a review of Lust For Life, I was wondering what became of the Sales brothers since they were involved in Tin Machine.. still really like that one and it holds up really well IMHO

Anyways Wikipedia is a little vague as to what the brothers have done of late, but this bit about Tony Sales the bassist was wow

He and his brother, Hunt, did some recordings together which were stored away after Tony had a car accident in 1979 so severe that he was all but dead for several minutes before being revived. He was consequently in a coma for over eight months but eventually recovered from his injuries and went back into music.

that does look good.  Their last show at the 9:30 was top notch IMO
