Happy International Clash Day everyone! Today is the 7th annual, totally made up holiday, International Clash Day marking the 40th anniversary of the Clash's album, London Calling. Best holiday ever! The Clash, for me was very influential growing up. They were the "gateway drug" introducing me to many other types of music. With their socially conscious/responsible message, The Clash made understand it was okay to be angry as long you used that anger as fuel to something constructive and positive.

KEXP Seattle has been broadcasting live from London this whole week and today, there's going to be several really cool bands playing live (check out the live stream on Youtube). Check it out! Post some Clash music, music influenced by The Clash and, of course, music the influenced The Clash. Also, KEXP.org's website has an archive that goes back up to 2 weeks so you can listen to a previous broadcast. KEXP is devoted to promoting music, art, freedom of speech and expression for all. Music radio stations should be controlled by the DJ's and Listeners, NOT by a corporate sales team or robot algorithms.

In the words of the late great Joe Strummer: "The future is unwritten."

“THE WAY YOU GET A BETTER WORLD IS, YOU DON’T PUT UP WITH SUBSTANDARD ANYTHING.”

IDLES, one the bands playing later today. Great band, intense.

Have a great day everyone, be good to each other! (Okay, I know, you can still blow up each other's pixel tanks. Other than that, be nice to each other.)
