It's been a while since I've posted any Clash stuff, probably cos I'm spoilt for choice courtesy of the good folk at the If Music Could Talk forum, so this is a bit of a lucky dip, and out of the hat comes an audience recording from the last gang in town at the Anti Nazi League Carnival, were they played to a crowd of up to 100,000 politically charged punters united against the growing far right movement of the time. The recording aint the best, but the passions there and as an artifact its well worth the click and save as. Alright so you don't get to see Joe in his infamous Red Brigade T-Shirt, you can see that on Rude Boy, but you do get to hear Jimmy Pursey joining the gang for White Riot, mind you, you can see and hear that on Rude Boy as well. Anyway I'm starting to type shite so it's time to go, but before I do that best let yer know where to get this from, and that place is right here right now. Well not exactly now cos DivShare is fucking about and this is the third and last time I'm gonna try, before using one of their competiters. Who said too much choice was a bad thing, shit I think I have in several posts, oops better go now, here ya go here's the link, cos I'm chatting even more shit than before. NO!, NOT AGAIN, FUCK YOU! divShare. I'm off elsewere. Right lets's try again...Quickshare nah bit of a contridiction in terms there, right back to the ever reliable Sendspace it is. YES! RESULT, here's the link. See ya good people. HERE'S A NEW LINK TO DOWNLOAD THIS GIG

"Darwin did not know what a bitter satire he wrote on mankind, and especially on his countrymen, when he showed that free competition, the struggle for existence, which the economists celebrate as the highest historical achievement, is the normal state of the animal kingdom. Only conscious organisation of social production, in which production and distribution are carried on in a planned way, can lift mankind above the rest of the animal world as regards the social aspect, in the same way that production in general has done for mankind in the specifically biological aspect." - Frederick Engels (in Dialectics of Nature)

Police arrest rates must be below target in London Borough of Tower Hamlets, also officers must need their number of arrests cash bonus. Look there's Pete Doherty....................click, click, click, that's another statistic in the computer. Ding, ding, ding the sound of the cash tile, that's the holiday paid for. The murderer of headmaster Phillip Lawrence can't be deported because it would be an infringement of his 'Human Rights' Aaargh good old British justice, always a sense of fair play.
STOP PRESS News24 now tells me that the police have fucked up, or as they called it 'a administrative error.' This meant that Pete's case was thrown out of court, with no charges brought. It was also reported that the Government would be challenging the court ruling over Phillip Lawrences killer. So there yer go...In conclusion there is justice sometimes, and we will be able to see how much power our government really has.

Sitting here thinking what to post; music, rantings, a bit of artwerk? I dunno it's a right miserable day outside. British summer time..Ha, Ha, Ha. X Factor has returned, great another thousand fame seeking wannabes looking for an instant hit of celebrity. White middle class bureaucrats continue with their war on terror. I now hear that some hospitals may stop bringing round sandwich trolleys, for fear that the contents of some sandwiches may offend Muslim patients. Has anyone asked Muslim's, no of course not. This is madness and just creates barriers where there were none. Hospital bosses should do something useful like clean up the NHS, healthy patients dying, now that is offensive. The Climate Change protest at Heathrow is drawing to a close, all police leave has been cancelled; expecting trouble? or ready to cause trouble? then blame the anarchists. Our streets are no longer safe and society is falling apart, fame can be found if you're prepared to sing for yer supper in front of over inflated egos and wallets. Every Muslim is a potential terrorist and we need to do whatever we can not to offend their religion and anyone that protests against anything is a trouble maker. That's if we believe what we are told and what we see. If we're tuned to a different station and dancing to the tune of a different drum, then we owe it to ourselves to make a stand and speak out. I'm just waiting for the day when a contestant on the X-Factor turns up and sings a Clash song.

Also as a bit of a bonus, over to the left there's a link for TV's Not In My Name track, a scathing attack on the whole Iraq war business, originally released in 2003 via his web site. Enjoy.

"The awful [financial] waste that patriotism necessitates ought to be sufficient to cure the man of average intelligence from this disease. Yet patriotism demands still more. The people are urged to be patriotic and for that luxury they pay, not only by supporting their "defenders," but even by sacrificing their own children." - Emma Goldman.
wastelands of South East London 2007, come KALLINGER.CO. These guys rawk and aint for the faint hearted. Coming straight at ya like Ministry meeting the Dead Kennedy's on the devils highway. This is music to smash the machinery of the state to, a soundtrack to the revolution. Brutal beats and grinding guitars, this is angry stuff, no compromises. Hard and heavy, but carrying a great tune. Handle with care like you would a lit Molotov, this is explosive stuff. No one escapes their healthy cynicism; Dead 'rock stars', religion and US foreign policy are all locked in their rifle sights. Take aim fire! 6 tracks: Satan Rides a Harley/Miller Time/Making Good In the West/Go Bang yer Own Drum/Death Rattle and Roll/About The Americans 2//
