The Clash - Street Rats

It would be fair to say that I have a few Clash bootlegs, but this is the one I return to more often than not. It’s a classic odds and sods release with something for everyone on it. So if you’re a Clash novice or a die hard fan I‘m sure you will find something here that will get the blood pumping. Enjoy punk fans.

  1. A nice post - thanks. But is a version of Lou Reed's "Wild Side" supposed to be tacked onto the end of "Kill Time"?

  2. Yep. That's how it is on the vinyl album and the Street Rat CDs that are kicking about the record fairs. (Well the ones I've seen and heard although obviously that's not them all.)
    This is a straight lift from the bootleg CD I have.
    Listen to the strings on it. It has always reminds me of The Waterboys Fisherman Blues era.

  3. any chance of a re-up mate? love the blog(creep creep)!
