Playlist 9 June
A distinctly non American lineup this week, to compensate for last week's Californitastic offering. The Clash song is one of the highlights from their first LP, even though the riff is a nick from Pretty Vacant and was originally called I'm So Bored With You, which could have been a title from the Boys first LP. And that's not a compliment.
Talking of the Boys, their little played (on this show, anyway) third LP gets a run out. Recorded in Hell. Yes, really. Hell in Norway, I'm sure you're familiar with it.
Add to that the teenage talents of Fatal Microbes and you have a show which , er, shows, that the UK was indeed the source of the rock that is punk.
