The Clash: Straight To Hell, 1982

I know I posted a now removed YouTube clip of it last summer so here goes. Also, it would appear, because one’s 13-year-old daughter seems to prefer it (and tonnes of other 1980s not-so-mainstream bands and performers) over Justin Bieber, One Direction and all that jazz – needless to say to her father’s great pride and relief.

And, of course, because apparently everything is going straight to hell.

The Clash: Should I Stay or Should I Go, 1982

Dear Britain,

In the hope that you’re not in too much of a hurry to see Scottish independence brought about – and an Ulster in turmoil, early 1970s-style (among legions of potential ordeals):

For the love of God, please stay.

After all there’s so much more to the UK than England.

At present, that is.

Yours truly,
A devoted, yet concerned neighbour, favouring union over division
