Punk died in 78 or perhaps even earlier, when The Clash signed that contract with CBS. I was at the funeral.
Then it came back for a trip over just to laugh at all us old men – Hey! Look what it came with; new clothes, a suntan and a surfboard. Is that a teeth job and a new accent? I’m all envious.
Why is it that only old men get angry these days? Because it's only old men like me who remember that there is no reason why the world can't be made a better place and we don't understand why nobody else wants to try.
OK I'm being spikey because they did a really great version of 'New England' - speeded up tripple time, but then they went and made me feel as old as I am by asking "Does anyone here know Billy Bragg?"
Do you want to know how the 'New England' ep proved to me that the pop charts were fixed and how it was that when I tried to fix them for Billy's next single it turned out that the fix was so big that even I couldn't beat it?
I don't know why I bother.
