1977


After Beth Orton looking back at 1973 today has Edwyn Collins looking back at 1977 via The Clash's Year Zero statement and that line they'd be measured against by music journalists for ever; 'No Beatles, Elvis or the Rolling Stones in 1977'. Edwyn tackles it with acoustic guitar, plenty of oomph and obvious love for the song.

My word, Edwyn was a good looking young lad wasn't he? He had good taste in covers too.
