It's Friday . . . Let's Skank




Outside of dance music aficionados Rude Boy Rock is probably the only Lionrock track that most people know of. Well it did hit the heady heights of #20 in the UK Top Forty in 1998. The track is built around a fair bit of the track Nimrod by the Skatalites and is just the kind of thing to temporarily blow away the September blues.

When not watching Airdrieonians getting gubbed I will spend the weekend  mostly listening to the remastered Clash studio albums,  which arrived earlier in the week. I was somewhat amazed at the sound of London Calling last night.

Have a good weekend people.

I'm flogging stuff on ebay to buy the box set.

It's well worth it guys. However I am waiting for a replacement box as the tops of all the albums apart from Sandinista had a small rip from rubbing against the top of the box.

I think I may be more of a Friday night skanker than a Friday night dancer!

How on earth did you manage to convince L, Drew? I am desperately searching for good arguments for Mrs Loser!! And: did Amazon still turn out to be the cheapest incl. p+p?

Dirk, Amazon was the cheapest unfortunately. I promised L it would be the last thing I would buy this year!
