The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.
lovely jubbely!(and stop imitating me....nowt to say....videos)
Always worth a listen but hey with nothing interesting in the garden now and Friday already given over to cats.....
the clash came under fire for coming out of middle class britain....one of those....about 3 good ones from each album
I would say they did two great albums (Clash and Give em Enough Rope), a third that would ahve been an utter classic as a single rather than a double (London Calling) a couple of "could have been better" (Sandanista and Combat Rock) and one utter turkey (Cut the Crap)Still it is a better legacy than most bands.
I saw a funny commercial where two guys try and decipher the lyrics to "Rock The Casbah" and settle for singing, "Stop The Catbox, Stop The Catbox!"
there were a couple of great ads for TDK tapes (I think) featuring mangled lyrics for Israelits and Into the Valley. I must see if they are on youtube
