Today is my birthday. 41, since you’re asking. I know, where does the time go?

Today’s song is possibly the greatest song The Clash wrote, which makes it probably one of the greatest pieces of post-war popular culture this country has produced. Hey, it’s my birthday and I’ll make wild claims if I want to. (White Man) In Hammersmith Palais is surely well known to most readers, and is the pinnacle of The Clash’s ‘trash reggae’, has brilliant tinny production and guitars, bass playing that proves that by this Paul Simonon has learned to play and more great Joe Strummer lines skewering late 70s Britain than any one song should contain.
At the time of typing, no-one has bought me a set of Clash action figures but there’s still time.
