"Without People, You're Nothing"
Consequence of Sound reminds us that today is the late, great Joe Strummer's birthday.
In honor of this great musician, start with that video up top, and then listen to “Redemption Song” (w/ Johnny Cash), and then read about his life, and then move on to the Strummer News Message Board, and end with this birthday post.
In other news, Bloc Party is taking pre-orders for their new album. Earlier this summer, their song Mercury (this version remixed by CSS) rocked my world (track via PopStereo).
And, to top it off, here's a new song called Ion Square (track via Above the Fold).
