Complete Control is such an insider song, and comes across so clearly. So much anger. So much rock.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/1/17 9:30pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Clash's 1st album - in my Top20 Albums ever. Kind of surprisingly...
  Wed. 3/1/17 9:33pm Stevel:

My first Clash album was Give ''em Enough Rope, like many midlanders, I'd suppose. First US release (?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/1/17 9:36pm JakeGould:

@Stevel: Ha! Thanks for the term, “Insider Song.” Was actually thinking of such songs today; things that reference some kind inside baseball or band issue that almost nobody knows or cares about.

Like Ramones’ “KKK Took My Baby Away” or even Elvis Costello’s “Radio Radio”
  Wed. 3/1/17 9:36pm Stevel:

First name was spelled "Hughie" on Edmund's Repeat When Necessary.
  Wed. 3/1/17 9:38pm Stevel:

Jake. Yeah, they're not always the best songs, but they're usually interesting. "EMI, by Sex Pistols, for example.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/1/17 9:38pm efd:

It took him a while to find himself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/1/17 9:40pm JakeGould:

@Stevel: Yeah, the songs seem to me to be excuses for fans to lecture other fans on true song meanings. For example, I cannot ever listen to “Radio Radio” with just joy anymore thanks to the song’s subtext being hammered into my head over the years.

Also, Hughie sounds like a deli man. Huey sounds like a duck.
  Wed. 3/1/17 9:40pm eye in the sky:

Interesting Clover spin-off band named SVT. Jack Cassidy on bass with Brian Marnell on lead and vocals. Good power pop trio. Had a Bay Area hit with "Heart Of Stone". Marnell went on to Jim Carroll band right before he ODed.Sad affair. Check SVT out. Good band.
  Wed. 3/1/17 9:41pm Stevel:

I've never heard the back stories on KKK or RR. Please don't feel obligated to tell them!

Tornadoes last night (nothing much broken around here) snowing sideways tonight. Fucking lovely weather. Dogs didn't care.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/1/17 9:41pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Punk was such a small & particular scene in those earliest days; by the time the Pistols' album was out late '77, that scene was already over for the insiders! Took a while for TheClash to get out too - & even longer yeah to get out in thuh U.S.A. ...
'RadioRadio' is eternally true, tho' - Corporate Formats now more than ever...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/1/17 9:42pm Uncle Michael:

I have the Heart of Stone single. Another SVT single too.

Yes - in SVT - that's the JeffersonAirplane's/HotTuna's Jack Cassidy - who played on 'ElectricLadyland' w/ Hendrix.

Marnell worked with Game Theory as well right before he died. The Sacto crowd were very connected.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/1/17 10:00pm Uncle Michael:

I hate to run counter to the culture, but the Clash were bigger posers than the Pistols. I'm a Clash fan but they were careerists. Strummer veered from the 101'ers course to the Clash becaue he saw the importance of following fashion. All the political sloganeering in the world doesn't change the fact that they were guys trying to make a good living making music. Why this should be a crime, I have no idea.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/1/17 10:02pm Scraps:

oh yeah
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/1/17 10:04pm Scraps:

Uncle Michael is right, every word, including the last important sentence

Always love hearing this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/1/17 10:11pm Scraps:

Poseur is a dumb accusation. (To me.) Maybe I think The Damned, or even worse, 999, were poseurs, but that accusation is in my head. Music is the key. (And, of course, my involvement in music is also in my head. But I can try to involve you in my head...)
Avatar Wed. 3/1/17 10:11pm chris_in_space:

@Bootsie it really never gets old
  Wed. 3/1/17 10:12pm eye in the sky:

I first saw the Clash in ? '80 ? Fliers on telephone poles said " The Only Band That Matters" at Temple Beautiful. Great show! Bill Graham told the band he had exclusive rights to all Bay Area shows so they said fuck you and did this one off. Negative Trend opened. Google Clash + Temple Beautiful to see pictures!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/1/17 10:12pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Wull...like PeteTownshend said his original idea of TheWh♂ was an ArtSchool idea he had - that they would be a Pop band but 'strap dynamite on themselves' & self-destruct very quickly...but then, kids responded strongly to his songwriting...& the royalty checks came in - & he got diverted! The Pistols were like a band sticking to his original conception (...whether every member really wanted to live that destiny exactly or not...) - & TheClash were more like a band that understood what Pete learned later from the beginning...but they didn't last very long either, really. (& only that 1st album is - completely like that 1st album.) Identity crisis is right there in the names of both TheWh♂ & Clash - & I think TheClash were pretty up front about being Poets of that condition - not the people w/ Thuh Answer...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/1/17 10:14pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...yerknow - in a rockumentary - they ask Bowie if he was threatened by Punk - & he says - no - they all wanted so badly to be RawkStars...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/1/17 10:15pm Uncle Michael:

he'd know about that
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/1/17 10:17pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I would credit Lydon w/ understanding the limitations of being a RawkStar - a lot more than an awful lot of people who could've benefited from that...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 3/1/17 10:20pm Uncle Michael:

which dumb moody blues record was supposed to be in the sleeve?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/1/17 10:20pm Scraps:

You have to turn off your sense of humor to play the Moody Blues


(to me, to me, to me!)
  Wed. 3/1/17 10:21pm Dean:

Moody Slide Slim and the Blues Horizon?

email Scott about it, Tommy - maybe but I'm not sure how that works.

was expecting to find On The Threshold Of A Dream inside the Moody Blues sleeve. The booklet was in there.

Two thots re Moodys (whom I like):
1.) Who says Psych must always be the screaminghorrors? Not me. (Much as I like that.)
2.) They represent the morphing of Psych into Prog prefectly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/1/17 10:32pm Scraps:

Even weirder is when the record LABEL is wrong. I have a CD where the label is Albert Ayler (I think) and the CD is Don Cherry
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/1/17 10:34pm Scraps:

I like the CD either way so I didn't trade it in
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/1/17 10:35pm Scraps:

Having to track down what album it was was weird, though
  Wed. 3/1/17 10:36pm Julie M Brooklyn:

It does happen, Scraps, and now you have a "collector's item."

Loving the Clifton Chenier. Speaking of Bayou Country, anyone catch Scharpling last night talking about how Fogerty occasionally sings with a drawl, but was born and raised in Berkeley, CA?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/1/17 10:41pm Scraps:

Fogerty deliberately did that, so that he could pretend to be from the south

Anytime. Looking forward to the fundraiser.

Avatar Wed. 3/1/17 10:43pm chris_in_space:

@Scraps, I should have mentioned that he contrasted his note about Fogerty with Elvis, who didn't use the accent, and was from Memphis. I think the word in question was "born"; or "boyne", as in "boyne on the Bayou"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 3/1/17 10:49pm Scraps:

By the time Fogerty was trying for success, being from the south was cool, whereas in Elvis's time, you sung with an midAmerican accent if you wanted to be taken seriously. If you sung with a southern accent, you ended up forced into blues or country

@Scraps I'll buy that, but what made the South cool between the mid 50s and the late 60s?

But that's not the whole story. I dunno....
Avatar Wed. 3/1/17 11:03pm chris_in_space:

@scraps at least after 10+ years, rock was more of a thing, and it was in garages across the nation. Perhaps any sort of identity–be it regional, racial, spiritual, etc–was just part of the progression of making pop music.

The 50s and 60s were severely changed. I guess that's obvious..... funny, I was just reading about the changing tenor in the writing about America from the 50s through the 60s.....

You know what, The Bedazzler is great, and so are potato chips and ice cream. But if you have potato chips and ice cream all the time, it's not a treat anymore, is it? Wait, what am I saying?
