I hear there’s more government talk of social mobility, or snakes and ladders as I like to call it, cos that’s all it is; a game they want people to play, were the first step on the ladder is home-ownership. I wonder if it’s any coincidence that the property market is in a slump at the moment and they want people to start borrowing again? Because that’s what it’s all about; selling the idea that ownership is good so you become what you own and a slave to it. The only social mobility I want to see is those snakes that have climbed the ladders on the backs of others sliding right back to the fucking bottom!
NO NAMES, NO HISTORY, JUST LISTEN! TO ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL HAPPENING FROM THE PSYCHEDELIC PAINTBOX.
“I’m fine, only on the surface…there’s no common purpose”
“And when you feel like crying…shout, come on save the world”
“Time flies, the innocence of a youthful flower is dead”
This post is for brutha Highlander and his Cactus Mouth Informer. Sorry about the wait, I think/hope you’ll find it was worth it. It's a fine slice of post punk psychedelic pop that doesnt just still sound good, but sounds better after 19 years. Vintage stuff! grab some here!

The country is in recession. People are losing their jobs by the day, and Manchester City football club are about to spend £100 million, yes £100 million fucking pounds (true it’s not British money, but whatever) on Brazilian player Kaka. Now that really is a load of Kack! (Kack is British slang for crap)

A couple of stories I read in the papers over the last couple of days, were about policy proposals, one from the Conservatives and the other from Labour. I can’t remember which was from which, but that’s pretty much irrelevant when they’re one and the same anyway with policies that are interchangeable. Both ideas concerned Law and Order. The first was about the public voting on the punishment for criminals, and the second was to stop arresting have a go heroes.
What does this tell us, that both major parties have no faith in the British Justice system as it stands at the moment and that they’re thinking about devolving power to the people, who have also lost faith in it, some of whom don’t know the difference between a paediatrician and a paedophile. Sounds like a step towards state sanctioned street justice to me with the potential for abuse, kangaroo courts and private armies made up of ex-servicemen anyone?

When The Clash visited Japan for the first time, they were treated like “western gods” Their gig at Sun Plaza, Tokyo on 1st Feb 1982 is one of the bands most bootlegged concerts, thanks to decent quality Japenese TV and Radio recordings. Various parts of the gig have appeared on the market under such glorious titles as Che Guevara, Death or Glory and Give 'Em Enough Dope, but, this here! recording is the whole gig, a 23 track career spanning live collection, the choice of songs was in part to acknowledge the fact that Japan had waited a long time for the band to visit them. A great recording that came via The Clash forum, whose collection of live Clash recordings should make sure that no Clash fan need buy an overpriced bootleg from eBay.
