"Magnificent Seven" by The Clash is a great song, but "Italian mobster shoots a lobster" is one of the stupidest lyrics of all time.

I assume lobster here is one of the British slang definitions ( a red faced guy or a British soldier are 2 possibilities) and not a tasty boiled crustacean dipped in drawn butter.

It's been a while since we had a discussion about Sandinista!, or since I've been able to give a shout-out to "Scuttling To Stand Still".


 
And so it woke up
Woke up from where it was on the sand
Said "I gotta do something about where I'm swimmin"
Caught in a fishnet
Thrown on the starboard deck
Maybe run from the markets in the night
Drumming ha, ah la la la de day
Ah la la la de day
Ah la la de day

Sweet the shell
Butter, the taste in my mouth
I eat seven legs
But I only see one more left
You got to dip without soaking
Crack without crushing
Cream without losing the taste
You know I ordered bisque from the lunch menu
Then they brought it out to me
Eating ha la la la de day
Ha la la la de day
Ha la la de day

Oooooh...

It swims through the straits with claws painted red
Under a black belly of ship in the bay
In through a hatchway
They brought out crustacean pearls
Stolen from the sea it was raging, it was raging
And the rubber bands up its claws
It will suffer the boiling swill
It's scuttling to stand still

The Call Up is probably my favourite The Clash song.

They should have sent it back to the minor leagues.

Whatever. I could have said my favourite Clash song was Career Opportunities, but as it happens, I wasn't taking the piss.

Ariana had to turn off instagram comments. Will never understand people who think it's cool to be so fucking mean on social media.

Disgusting. After all of the things she’s gone through in the past year, they slam her with shit like that. People are horrible.

Sad to hear about Mac Miller, way too young.

It's not on Youtube so I can't post a link, but I just listened to the song "Return" by Eno/Hyde for the first time in a couple of years and my goodness. One of the most incredible songs ever released.

Pitchfork savaged this because Kanye finally went off the deep end... but I fucking adore this song. It's miles better than anything on ye. So fucking catchy, the clip is hilarious, and it introduced me to a great comic in Adele Givens.

I'm also happy to report that Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever's debut album is great.

What record do you think is amazing because of how well it holds up, in spite of overwhelming evidence that it shouldn't?

For me, it's blink-182's self-titled. I fucking adore that album, several of its songs (not the meme one) regularly pop into my head out of nowhere, and I've really not found much to fill its void in the years since, Los Campesinos! excepting.

In fact, I can't think of many bands who are considered so lame and uncool now who made as many good songs as blink did.
