The Clash


On this date in 1977, The Clash released their self-titled debut album in the U.K. The album included the singles "White Riot" (#38 U.K.), and "Remote Control". The album version of "White Riot" was a different version than the one released as a single (the album version does not have the opening sirens). The album would reach the #12 spot on the U.K. albums chart. It would not be released in the U.S. until 1979 because their record company didn't think it would sell well enough. When it did, it reached the #126 on the U.S. albums chart. The cover of the album only featured three of the four members of The Clash (Paul Simonon, Joe Strummer and Mick Jones) because their drummer, Tory Crimes (aka Terry Chimes) had left the band. He did sit in on the recording sessions. Nicky "Topper" Headon would become their new drummer. The London punk band disbanded in 1986. Mick Jones formed Big Audio Dynamite. Joe Strummer was involved in many projects until his death in 2002.

Loving your site, after having recently discovering it. One constructive comment, the posts look much better when viewed via google reader, they are more cleaner without the other surounding material.

Agreed, but you just described the exact functionality of a news reader. The RSS feed publishes each blog post as we update. Using a feed reader like Google Reader, Bloglines, Live Bookmarks (Firefox), or others, will give you only the blog posts. Makes it easier to read multiple blogs or news websites by letting you scan the headlines.

We encourage you to subscribe to both The P5 feed and the other music blog feeds on our site (in our lower right column)

The P5 website itself includes blog posts, comments, followers, music blog feeds, all of the sidebar stuff, etc. This is what makes The P5 a website and not just a data feed.

Make sense?
