Welcome, Ooze readers

According to my referrals, a few of you have wandered over here by way of The Ooze after reading Ecclesiastes in a Ripped Shirt, which is chapter 2 of this book/blog-in-progress. Welcome! If you're interested in reading more, the preface is a good place to start. From there, go on to the introduction and then chapter 1. You'll be caught up.

Remembering Joe Strummer

Four years ago tomorrow -- on Dec. 22, 2002 -- Joe Strummer, the political sound and fury of the Clash, died at age 50. The man was the Elvis of punk rock. I should probably write a fitting tribute about the man here, but I think my introduction to Never Mind the Bibles is probably tribute enough.

But just in case it ain't:

Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros perform "Rudie Can't Fail (YouTube) -- for Rockstar Mommy.

Joe Strummer and the Mascaleros perform "White Man (in Hammersmith Palais)" (YouTube) -- for Tesco.

Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros - Silver and Gold.mp3, from the greatest posthumous album ever, Streetcore -- for me.
