After the death of Mr Mclaren a lot will no doubt have been written about him, the pistols, whether he was a shyster or not etc etc. As soon as I heard of his death, bizarrely I didn't think of punk at all. I am a Clash man anyway...But my thoughts went to the early nights of Stone Cold Picnic in Liverpool and the chaos involved. Mainly as the nights always ended with the Double Dutch 12" and on the last night in a club, whose name escapes me, I ended up serving behind the bar whilst the bar staff went mental to this track. The managers reason for finishing it was he wasn't taking enough behind the bar...Sorry Gaz, I couldn't have drank anymore if I had tried! It was via a few boozers then the Panorama, now that is another story.
If you dig (man!) Satori by the Flower Travellin' Band - then you need to check out the awesome Japrock by Julian Cope for more.
I'll sort out a podcast of this shite and earlier versions on a webpage near you, coming soon. In the mean time. PEAC
