The Clash - Atlanta 2.10.79

this is another show from the 'take the 5th tour'.The tour swings down south into Georgia and Texas but without the Undertones who left after the Toronto gig. The band and particularly Joe were excited and inspired by playing in the southern states for the first time. Money problems continued; with Epic not coming through, the road crew were particularly difficult with drastic measures needed by Johnny Green and Baker.Pennie Smith was at the gig taking photos; one at least is credited to Atlanta on the back cover of London this is a great sounding gig but with an edge to it.i cant explain what but listen for yourselves,play it loud till the neighbours threaten to call the police,then turn it down and leave a comment.thanks!

Beastie Boys - Mixed and Mashed

My tribute to the late great MCA Adam Yauch.its a compilation of mashups etc featuring,the clash,joe strummer,depeche mode,the ramones etc etc.theres 14 tracks in total including one which isnt a mashup but is the hard to get single 'rock hard' which samples back in black by ac/dc so it almost is.anyway whilst listening spare a moment to think of Adam and his great contribution to music from punk to hip hop and so much in between.R.I.P MCA
please listen,enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks!
