Sometimes a giant fake cigarette is just a giant fake cigarette.

Thanks folks! I’ll be here all week. Try the buffet!

I think the cigarette is a poster tube. I am still not sure of the significance, though.

In “The Future is Unwritten,” Joe says, “All non-smokers should be barred from buying products made by smokers.” He goes on to make a direct link between creativity and smoking cigarettes. Which is part of the genius of Joe - agree or disagree, he always made you think.

Oh, and… stickers!

Stay Free: “smoking menthol”

I love how all the Clash boxsets never include Cut the Crap.


#8

Perfect for a camberwell carrot.


#9

And earplugs?


#10

Does anyone elsethink $177 is highway robbery for this? Turning rebellion into money, indeed.


#11

For all that Joe Strummer gave us over they years, we can forgive him that album.

packaged in an exact replica of Mr. Simonon’s beloved old boom-box.

How much would it cost me to source a working version of the same model as Paul had?


#13

considering the Clash has given away their rights on London Calling to CBS to make it a double album at the price of a simple, and have done the same for Sandinista (making a triple album the price of a regular album) I don’t think they overprice this :slight_smile: 11 CD’s, remastered, plus a handful of goodies, 177$ is not cheap but don’t seems overpriced.


#14

Yes, I have confirmed it is a poster tube for a photo of Joe Strummer taken by Paul Simonon.

strummers (not my montage):

paul’s boombox (looks like a sanyo?)

i’ve been trying to find a cheap-ish Lasonic TRC-931
