greetings pop pickers!. got this little gem this morning from camden dave so i thought id take a short break from B.A.D to repost it here. Its the soundcheck from the infamous gig at the Winterland in Jan of 1978. Theres a lot of on stage jamming, sid playing ramones bass lines, the band run through a few numbers and lots of banter and swearing between the band and others. Anyway it runs about 20 mins in total. the sound is brilliant throughout but i suggest turning it up and hooking up a pair of good headphones to capture it in all its glory. you all know the history of this gig so without further ado please listen, enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks! Winterland Soundcheck 1978
here ya go with volume 3 of the B.A.D files. another 13 tracks for your listening pleasure.you'll know what to expect by now another collection of remixes and rarities. so please listen, enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks! The B.A.D Files vol.3
Good morning listeners. as vol.1 of this is proving really popular judging by the amount of downloads its had since posting yesterday i thought id crack on with vol.2 of this great compilation. Again many thanks to the person i originally procured them from, please make your self known if you remember sending them to me. anyhoo this one has 12 tracks for your listening pleasure. and all that remains is to listen, enjoy and then leave a comment. thanks! The B.A.D Files vol.2
Evening all. this cd you see just above all the waffle im typing has been sitting on my hard drive for a long time now. ive got it on my eye-podd and everything and its a really good listen. anyway im posting it here now but the only thing is ive had it sitting on my computer for so long i cant remember who i procured it from originally. if you know who it was please say hello from me and i hope they dont mind me reposting it here as its the start of a great compilation series of B.A.D rarities and remixes etc etc. I have the first 8 volumes and i believe theres a 2cd version of a volume 9 but i cant find that anywhere, so if anyone has this and would be happy sharing it with the muebles listeners posting a link to it in the comments section would be brilliant. this first volume has 13 tracks for your listening pleasure so without further babbling from me please listen, enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks! The B.A.D Files Vol.1
morning all.these guys sent me some links which you can see in the comments for the Culture peel sessions post. Anyway here is one link GENIUS where you can listen to a stream of their album BIRTH CHOICE DEATH or buy a digital copy for just a few dollars. anyway they are 3 guys from Busan in south korea and they rock.i really recommend this album ,im listening to it as i type and its really good, fast punk pop with infectious hooks and melodies that has me bouncing as i type. i cant recommend this enough and GENIUS if you guys are reading i hope you make it to london one day for gigs i would love to come and see you guys live.

afternoon all.this one does exactly as it says on the tin. Armagideon Times vol.1 in all its glory,presented in pdf format for your mobile reading devices. Okay for an old bugger like me some of the small print is a wee bit hard to read but until a better copy comes along this will definitely do.so please read, enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks! Armagideon Times vol.1
this (repost request)comes courtesy of the art attacks.proper old school punk on offer here with an (un)official? collection of singles , live tracks etc.some gems here including the classic ' i am a dalek' and 'chickens in finland'.anyway fun for all the family.so listen,enjoy and then leave a coment.thanks!
Repost : this is a strange clash boot for you all today.i got it as a 2 disk cd-r a few days ago and honestly had never heard of it before.it seems to be a compilation of other bootlegs from 'd.o.a' and 'rudeboy' etc.theres also some live tracks from unknown(to me anyway)sources but disk 2 has a few remixes etc that ive not heard recently and some mescaleros live pieces etc.also on disk 1 is a track called 'rudy ska' that is supposedly a recording from the clash and the specials but to me it doesnt sound like either of them(in fact i know it definitely isnt so not sure why its on here!).i think this bootleg was originally taken from vinyl sources or at least a vinyl version seems to exist.i must see if blackmarketclash.com have any info on its origin.so have a listen and tell me what you think.if anything its another for the clash completists out there.so then enjoy it and leave a comment.thanks!
another clash related post for you all to hopefully enjoy comes this one inspired by the good folks at blackmarketclash.com .they published a list of artists who they said had covered clash songs and asked if anyone could send them the full list.i did a little digging through the muebles archives and using my crack team of researchers (ok my wife and one of my nephews!) managed to get most of them except police and thieves by buffalo tom.(yes i know its not a clash original but they made it their own).anyway i emailed buffalo tom and according to buffalo tom themselves they never covered the track but i did find a version they did of straight to hell so that is included in its place.some of these cover artists may surprise you and one of them almost isnt really a proper cover(if that makes sense!) but youll hear what i mean.anyhoo its over to you the listener to listen,enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks!
p.s one of the cover versions here isnt the best quality,sorry but its the only version i have.see if you can guess which one it is!
this is a compilation i put together a long time ago and thought it deserved another posting.its track listed on the back cover and contains a whole load of covers,remixes,colaborations with artists like johnny cash,post clash stuff from joe and the pogues,carbonsilicon with 2 ex-pistols guesting etc etc.anywayit took a shed load of time to put together but i think its worth it.so if you like the clash as much as i do then please listen,enjoy and leave a comment.thanks!
p.s thanks very much to everyone who has been leaving comments recently.sometimes i forget to reply but they are very much appreciated.dont forget to leave any requests for new posts,reposts etc in the most recent postings comment section and ill do my best to help you out.cheers! Back to Brixton
hi all.ok id better explain a bit about this post.whilst listening ages ago to the clash version of garage punk classic 'louie louie' i remembered i also had several other versions of this track.i had ones by iggy pop,motorhead,the beach boys,the kingsmen,richard berry,black flag and so on.i thought it would be a good idea to try and compile as many other versions as i could.with all the ones i found this posting could easily have run for several postings,there are so many out there!ive put the ones i liked the best including all the ones mentioned above.theres some great instrumental and easy listening versions here too.so anyway if you like this song and like me youre a bit of an obsessive nerd(my wifes words not mine!) then youll love this.so here you go with 27 (yes 27!!) versions of one of my top 3 alltime favourite songs.sit back, listen, relax and enjoy this compilation of a proto-garage-punk-reggae-easy listening-headbanging classic.then leave a comment.thanks!
This post you see before you started life long before i compiled the outside broadcasts series.it was one of my first attempts at compiling clash cover versions,remixes post clash projects etc.i hope you like it!
p.s i forgot to mention some of the artists included here. theres the police,the killers,busta rhymes,50 cent,tony blair!!,the beastie boys and many other artists that to be honest ive never heard of.some work really well , others er......not so much but worth a listen though Clash get mashed!
another nice 13 track compilation from mr.strummer to start things off today.its got live tracks from his time with the pogues and other post clash related stuff.my fave has got to be the title track on this cd,cant really say why but it just is! anyhoo please listen,enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks!
An interesting post for you this evening. This is the unreleased soundtrack to the 1993 film of the same name which was directed by Sara Driver. The film was only ever shown at a few festivals i believe and to this day has not been released on dvd etc. A nice listen with a mixture of vocal and instrumental tracks. Bit of an obscurity this one and a nice piece for your Strummer collections. please listen,enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks! When Pigs Fly

Morning all.This post combines the ruts live at strathclyde university and the freerange demos from 1977. Its nothing that hasnt appeared in loads of places before but as they are both a great listen it made sense to combine the two into one cracking punk rock posting.no artwork with this one im afraid it seems to have gone walkabout but dont let that spoil your enjoyment of a great listen. if like where i am its nice and sunny where you are (strange that,itll probably start pissing rain again in a second now ive siad that!)open the windows, crank this all the way up and let the neighbours know what they should be listening to.so without further ado please listen,enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks! Ruts 77+79
ok thanks to those who tried the link and left comments,much appreciated.it seems to have sorted itself out now after 2 cd re-rips and 5 attempts at uploading the files.thankyou!
This post is a great joe strummer and the mescaleros mini show recorded live on the jools holland show sometime back in 2000. its 4 tracks (well technically 5 if you count the opening 'jam')and features 2 tracks from the clash and 2 from the mescaleros. really good sound quality so i can only assume this was taken from a video rip or something like that. anyways thanks to reggie for this, its a really nice addition to my clash/joe strummer collection. so please listen, enjoy and then leave a comment.you know it makes sense.dont forget to include repost requests etc in the comments too or if there is anything in particular you would like to see you only have to ask.thanks very much. Joe on the Jools Holland show
Whilst im on a roll here is another great clash post. Its a show from the Combat Rock tour in 1982.

anyhoo please listen enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks! Go Marching In
continuing with all things joe strummer and clash related is this excellent 2cd compilation called generations. its a great compilation and definitely worth a listen. this repost was requested by MARC POP (sorry for the wait mate!).please listen,enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks! Generations

Im looking for the peel sessions recorded by The Outcasts and Rudi.the outcasts did 2 in 81 and 82 and Rudi in 81 i believe.ive seen them posted on youtube but im looking for them in mp3's. Im asking for these as i watched the film Good Vibrations last night (my DVD arrived yay!)its available here Good Vibrations DVD from Amazon and is definitely worth a watch and purchase( for those who dont know its the story of Terri Hooley and his setting up of the label/collective of the films title.a brilliant film). Anyway it reminded me that these bands had recorded sessions for Mr. Peel and try as i might i cant find them. Can anyone help fill this gap in my collection?Thanks
EDIT: Many thanks to Dirk over at http://sexy-loser.blogspot.de/ who very kindly sent me the outcasts from 82 and rudi from 81 peel sessions. Check out his blog some great Peel related stuff there and lots of other goodies.Thanks very much mate its much appreciated.
Morning all. while going through various hard drives and dvds this morning looking for vols 1+2 of the joe strummer 5 night stand(which i still havent found!!) i found this little gem. its a podcast version of john peels day on D.I.D which was originally broadcast in 1990.its about 40 mins long and is a great listen for fans of Mr. Peel. Unfortunately it doesnt include full versions of the tracks he chose but its still a great listen.so please listen,enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks! John Peel - Desert Island Discs
Afternoon all.this little post you see before you is a nice 15 track collection of ruts and ruts dc cover versions,remixes and mashups.One of the tracks is the ruts themselves recorded in cardiff in 78 i think and is a brilliant version of Jah war with malcolm owen being on top form.a few versions of babylons burning,jah war etc and other songs you all know and love. i have more tracks for a vol.2 and will get round to posting them eventually.so please listen,enjoy and leave a comment.thanks!
