Aint for revolution just for cash.
On getting home last night i finally heard it and saw it for the first time, i was just making a cup of tea after flicking the TV on when i hear Joe Strummer singing Londons Calling, i look up is the British Airways ad i have heard about but pushed to the back of my mind.
i was truly saddened that it had come to this, the songs and band of rebellion from my youth promoting a company who did not come out at all well when their workers were striking,and people who think this is being subversive have to remember that all people will hear is Londons calling tra la la la and thats it, we would like to think its subversive but it not its just money making.
Dont get me wrong its Mick Jones to do with however he sees fit,but to me not only is he selling his heritage but hes selling mine too and others like me feel this way, this has really tarnished the memory of the clash and that tour where they were promoting that album which holds such great memories for me has suddenly had the gloss taking off.
I dread to think whats coming next and where the songs will be used next, punk is truly dead!
Crass were right all along, i always knew they were
