From The Basement #165
I believe if Joe Strummer still roamed the planet he might have cut a new version with them and the surviving Clash members gave their blessing even before Billy Bragg scrutinized their bonafides. (STORY HERE) Beton, a Ukrainian band remade “London Calling” and it definitely needed to be at the start of the episode. I keep trying not to watch the carnage. It’s infuriating. Music is all I can do to keep the sadness away so here’s FTB #165. It helps me to make them and I hope they help some of you. The donation link ends on March 30. Thanks to all who contributed or wanted to but just couldn’t. Believe me, I get it. DONATE New, old, unreleased and unrehearsed, this is what happened after hitting record. Tip o’the cap to new Spokesmodels Skipper and Siggy, absolute legends in certain circles. As always, thanks for listening.

Damn, you always put together great stuff, but this one hit me in the feels. The Clash, BDP, a sprinkling of ‘The Wire’ plus Benton and all the rest. Thank you.
