TURNING REBELLION INTO MONEY / CA5H CITY ROCKER5 ?


THE CLA5H'5 5OUND 5Y5TEM BOX 5ET WA5 RELEA5ED THI5 MONTH AMONG5T MUCH DEBATE ABOUT IT'5 MERIT5; WHY REMA5TER THE PA5T, AND THE CO5T; A £100 IN A TIME OF RECE55ION? I5 THI5 IN KEEPING WITH THE CLA5H'5 PRICING POLICIE5 OVER PREVIOU5 RELEA5E5. FOR EXAMPLE THE 5ANDANI5TA TRIPLE ALBUM.
WITH ALL THE EXTRA5 BADGE5, FLYER5 ETC A5 WELL A5 THE MU5IC AND FILM THI5 NEW BOX 5ET I5 THE ULTIMATE CLA5H COMMODITY, BUT ONCE AGAIN THE PA5T HA5 BEEN AIRBRU5HED AND A 5TALINI5T PURGE HA5 ERA5ED CUT THE CRAP FROM THE CLA5H'5 PA5T.. ANYWAY ENOUGH FROM ME HERE'5 5OME WORD5 FROM THE CLA5H :-

“THAT'5 THE GAMBLE WE HAVE TO TAKE. WE BELIEVE WHAT WE'RE DOING I5 RIGHT. IF WE HAD TO BE DICTATED BY WHAT OTHER PEOPLE 5AY IT WOULDN'T BE THE CLA5H.” - PAUL 5IMONON ON 5ANDANI5TA RETAILING FOR LE55 THAN THE PRICE OF A DOUBLE ALBUM 1981.

“IT'5 A BIG FLOP. THE THING I LIKE ABOUT MAKING A 5TAND ON PRICE5 I5 THAT IT'5 HERE AND NOW AND NOT JU5T A PROMI5E. IT'5 DEALLING WITH REALITY: HOW MANY BUCK5 YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO PART WITH AT THE COUNTER TO GET IT. IT'5 ONE OF THE FEW OPPORTUNITIE5 WE HAVE TO MANIFE5T OUR IDEAL5, TO MAKE THEM EXI5T IN A REAL PLACE. TO DO IT IN THATCHER5 BRITAIN DURING A RECE55ION WA5 A KIND OF FLAMBOYANT GE5TURE.” - JOE 5TRUMMER ON THE OUTCOME OF THE 5PECIAL PRICING OF 5ANDINI5TA 1981

Clearly, he who fucked nuns didn't merely join the church, he eventually ascended to the Papacy.
