This Was Radio Clash

I missed this on Boxing Day due to family commitments but it's worth catching up with today (or any day up until Thursday, readers outside the UK may need to search the internet a little deeper)- Mick Jones, Paul Simonon and Topper Headon chatting and playing records for BBC6 here. Opening with Bowie's Laughing Gnome the surviving 75% of The Clash take in Adam Faith, The Meters, Afika Bambaataa, The Kinks, Desmond Dekker, Junior Murvin, Chuck Berry, Shuggie Otis, Grandmaster Flash, Arctic Monkeys and a load more besides. All three are engaging hosts and former manager Bernie Rhodes also makes repeated appearances in a disguised squeeky voiced form.

The Damned did an ace version on the Friday the 13th EP - from 1981, a few steps of the 80s psych revival


Another nugget of Stones gold is Going Down, from Metamorphosis. A throw away track - that's a template tune for the Primals and Black Crowes
