Song of the day.
Those who know me personally (or followed my previous blog) already know that there are simply not enough words to describe how much I love Joe Strummer. The anniversary of his death is coming up next month, and ever since a local radio station broadcast their Punk top 40 and added this as a possibility to vote for, I haven't been able to get it out of my head. When you hear the name 'Joe Strummer', the next words that pop into your head are probably 'The Clash'. Or 'The Mescaleros', even, if you're familiar with his music after the legendary punk band. His first (pub) band, The 101ers, made this earworm, though, and I think it definitely deserved a spot in this weekly format. It's so simple and somehow reminds me of all those small, local bands I went to see, back when I was a teenager. I promise you it'll get stuck in your head immediately! Have a listen:
What d'you think? Be warned: I'm a fanatic. ;-)
