Electronic Twittering Bands

I like this snippet of a radio interview with Joe Strummer while in The Clash, circa 1980/1. There are two parts that I always think should be sampled- the title of this post is one, crying out for dropping over some electronic twittering. The other is the final bit where Joe says ‘I’m pretty confused myself’- I can hear it looped with a load of echo over a dubbed out bassline….

Today’s picture from British Prints From The Machine Age is Edward Wadsworth’s linocut Illustration (Typhoon), the abstract interior of the inside of a ship’s engine room. Cut out of lino. Pretty good use of a mass produced floor covering.
