We are today’s featured band on Strummerville – The Joe Strummer foundation for new music

July 13, 2012 Leave a comment

Strummerville is a registered charity that gives support to aspiring musicians and help to projects that help change the world through music.

Set up by the friends and family of Joe Strummer in the year after his death, the charity seeks to reflect Joe’s unique contribution to the music world by offering support, resources and performance opportunities to artists who would not normally have access to them.

Visit our page over at Strummerville. We’ve posted our track “Maybe It’s True”. This is a huge honor for us. Joe Strummer is one of the main reasons I do what I do.

The Death of Joe Strummer (wanted to hear this one again)

July 3, 2012 Leave a comment

The Death of Joe Strummer
(Tom Flannery)
from 2004’s release “Auctioneer

What happens when the heart is too big for the chest
and it just can’t keep up with all the rest
what happens when it takes you on
and wears you down until you’re gone
what do we take from that Joe?
what do we take from that Joe?
now that you’re gone

I got these sounds in my head
they make no sense so we’re stuck instead
with recycled trash and computer chips
rock and roll for food and tips
what do we take from that Joe?
what do we take from that Joe?
now that you’re gone

You were Woody Guthrie with a mowhawk
and a scratching loud guitar
a ravaged voice from screaming
telling us where we are
now you’re knocking at the backstage door
trying to get in
panhandling on the boardwalk
wondering what might have been

It still don’t feel right that you’re gone
without the blaze of glory of a deathbed song
so used to watching ’em waste away
eaten to the bone by a brand new day
what do we take from that Joe?
what do we take from that Joe?
now that you’re gone
