“But I prefer…alcohol!”

The Clash – “The Right Profile” from London Calling (1979)
The Clash – “Gates of the West” from Super Black Market Clash (1994) [originally on The Cost of Living EP, 1979]

Two lesser-known Clash songs, both of which feature top-notch vocal performances by their respective singers. (That’s Joe Strummer on “The Right Profile” and Mick Jones on the smooth-as-butter “Gates of the West,” natch.)

The above photo of Monty Clift comes by way of Stanley Kubrick, an SWR fave. Check out Kubrick’s photo book.

Buy the Clash

  2. Watch for severe health. Nearly as dangerous as extreme health. Or rigorous health. Or even worse, austere health.

  3. In other news, I saw that book of Kubrick photos a while back, and it’s quite interesting.
