London Calling


London calling to the faraway towns
Now that war is declared-and battle come down
London calling to the underworld
Come out of the cupboard, all you boys and girls
London calling, now don't look at us
All that phoney Beatlemania has bitten the dust
London calling, see we ain't got no swing
'Cept for the ring of that truncheon thing

The ice age is coming, the sun is zooming in
Engines stop running and the wheat is growing thin
A nuclear error, but I have no fear
London is drowning-and I live by the river

London calling to the imitation zone
Forget it, brother, an' go it alone
London calling upon the zombies of death
Quit holding out-and draw another breath
London calling-and I don't wanna shout
But when we were talking-I saw you nodding out
London calling, see we ain't got no highs
Except for that one with the yellowy eyes


Now get this
London calling, yeah, I was there, too
An' you know what they said? Well, some of it was true!
London calling at the top of the dial
After all this, won't you give me a smile?

I never felt so much a' like

Dear EmailNation Subscriber,

Joe Strummer, the lead singer and songwriter for the revolutionary British
punk band The Clash, died unexpectedly last night at the age of 50.
Strummer, the band's guitarist, vocalist, and frequent frontman alongside
Mick Jones, passed away at his farmhouse in Somerset, southwestern

Strummer and The Clash created perhaps the most powerful,
politically-charged pop music in the history of the recording industry,
literally changing the lives of a generation inspired by the band's
energy, honesty and recognition of the inherent contradictions of trying
to be a dissident in modern capitalist society.

As the great British singer-songwriter Billy Bragg said this morning, "the
thing about Strummer was he walked it like he talked it. He didn't cop
out. He didn't show one face to the public and have a different face in

In short, in a world of superficiality, Joe Strummer was the real thing.
Our hearts go out to his family, friends and fans.

The BBC is collecting a series of tributes to Strummer's life and work:

And watch this space for further appreciations.

Best Regards,
Peter Rothberg
The Nation

Joe Strummer – Died 22 Dec 2002.

Joe Strummer is dead. Long live Joe Strummer.

While the Sex Pistols might have epitomized the nihilistic style and tabloid-baiting shock value of the Punk movement, it was Strummer’s band, the Clash, that made the most of the freedom it professed to represent. It was an approach which lent them relative longevity over most of their peers, and saw them ride furthest with the Punk torch – a ride that took them across the world (including a guerrilla tour of Thailand) and even to the top of the pop charts (Should I Stay Or Should I Go).

Beyond their righteous sloganeering, perhaps their most significant maneuver was to discard the perceived constraints of what a Punk band should sound like. Better still, these forays into other genres weren’t just exercises in good intentions -- they actually sounded good too. Fucking great, in fact. Beyond the snotty white riot agit-rock, any number of diverse elements might be incorporated into a Clash track: dub; science experimentalism; rockabilly; rap; rebel folk; Spector walls-of-sound; Beat poetry mantras; Country namechecks; Ju-ju; High-life; tribal drums; the echoes of soul horns or even a passing mariachi band… The list goes on, but what’s really worth mentioning is how the Clash weren’t scared to take it to the disco. And how when they got dubby with their reggae, or down with the funk, it’s hard to believe they were white Englishmen. One of the best white dance bands ever.

After the Clash’s demise, Strummer remained true to the band’s spirit as a solo artist, producer, composer, DJ and actor (see Jim Jarmusch’s “Mystery Train”). His new band, The Mescaleros, were going from strength to strength and showed he still had much to offer. Whatever the case, Joe Strummer leaves behind an exciting and diverse body of music that will endure beyond the cultural significance of the Clash and the
scene they emerged from.

Bas mi je zao. The Clash su bili najbolji punk band svih vremena, a Joe je bio i ostace legenda.

Jedan od prvih bendova koji je me je ocarao kao pitomca osnovne skole, razred VII/3,
...a Joe Strummer sa mladjanim Mescaleros medju poslednjim koncertima kojima sam prisustvovala. Bas kao sto pise u tekstu koji nam je ovde prenela Sister - energija neverovatnog mnostva uticaja. A na Tommy Gun, vokal puca kao da je '78.

Secam se da je rece da ce okupiti Clash ponovo kad budu imali po 70 leta, da im penzionerski dani ne budu dosadni. Nikad penzioner!

Goodbye Joe Strummer!
