Carbon/Silicon



I've been a Clash fan since before I knew what punk rock was. KFRC used to play The Clash in the 1970s and '80s when it was still a pretty hip rock radio station in the Bay Area. Later it changed formats to oldies (which is ironic since they switched formats again recently and now play The Clash again, but now they're the oldies!).

Mick Jones and Tony James were friends before they became famous in The Clash and Generation X respectively, but lately they've been recording again together. For the past five years they've been releasing their songs for free on the net under the moniker Carbon/Silicon. A few of their downloads are available on their official site, and a lot are available on various Clash fan boards like this one.

Now they've released a full "conventional CD" in stores (and on iTunes Music Store), and the pair were interviewed on Tuesday's "Fresh Air" on NPR (listen to the stream or podcast).

Update: I'd be remiss if I failed to point out to Jason A. that there's a bunch of Clash, Pogues, Jam, Sex Pistols, and other bootlegs available in the threads on this board.
