greetings listeners and welcome back to muebles towers on this sunny afternoon in olde london town. here we go with vol.4 of the BAD files. 12 tracks this time around for your listening pleasure. please listen, enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks!
p.s can someone please let me know if they have downloaded vol.2 of this post at all. because i dont think mediafire is entirely accurate with the d/load numbers. i myself d/l each file at least once to check its working but this hasn't shown up and its reading 0. the same with if music could talk vol.1 its showing 0 d/loads. now if thats correct then thats fine but its not even showing my test d/load. does anyone else have this issue with mediafire? let me know in the comments if you can. thanks very much The B.A.D Files Vol.4
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.
This great peel sessions post comes courtesy of Neil in Lewisham. Culture are a reggae band formed in 1976 and became huge favourites with punks at the time particularly the track "two sevens clash" which is featured here along with 3 other tracks for your listening pleasure. Many thanks neil for this link.anyways please listen, enjoy and leave a comment.thanks! Culture Peel sessions
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
The second Joe strummer related post for the blog this evening.its another 26 track compilation of joe with the pogues,johnny cash etc etc. not mush else to say except please listen,enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks! Collaborations

This post arrived to me this morning courtesy of jimbo in Antrim(thanks mate!).its a 26 track compilation that consists of various single b-sides and the live tracks are from the acton town hall concert including the encore tunes with mick jones.its a great compilation and definitely worth a play or two.so please listen enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks!

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
