What's All This Then

Why should I care what this guy has to say?

The correct answer is that you shouldn’t. We’re all entitled to our opinions. Develop your own. I try to be sane and rational, but that may change with the level of caffeine intake. I’m just telling my stories in the hopes they may amuse and/or inform others. And... I Confess... I'm showing off my bitchen collection a bit.

Clash Singles Part 4 - Combat Rock

At the end of 1982, The Clash release the album that pushed them into the mainstream.   Combat Rock came out just before the band began to implode. Before the record was released, they sacked their drummer and toured without him.  At the conclusion of that tour, they sacked Mick Jones - who co wrote all their songs.    The end was near. 

Know Your Rights b/w First Night Back in London (CBS 1982)

The lead off single and lead off track from the album.

And the single came with a sticker.  I'm glad I wasn't compelled to stick it on anything.

Rock the Casbah b/w Long Time Jerk (CBS 1982)

The second single and probably the biggest hit of The Clash's career.

This one also came with a sticker
