THE CLASH: STREET RATS

street ratsLast week, this blog scored bigg on Digg.com. Yet the post I did wasn’t all that different from a lot of other posts I do here. If any of you have any idea why or how the rocker/rappers post garnered so much attention, I’d love to hear your thoughts. I mean, I’m not unhappy with my regular numbers here, but why did that post get so popular on Digg whereas most of my posts only get three or four dugg votes? I’m also asking all of you to help by giving good ratings to my site at wherever you play (stumbleupon, digg, blogtopsites, etc.).

Okay, now on with the post: I thought I’d thrown these up before, but I guess I haven’t. “Street rats” is a collection of unreleased promos, demos, and live recordings by the world’s greatest band, The Clash. The quality of each track varies, but there’s definitely some gems here. As usual, some tastes and a zip:

London’s Burning (Polydor Demo version)
Cool confusion (alt. version)
white riot (1977 video promo)
Safe european home (06-09-81)
