    really, well that was a complete failure then, i thought that this was an adonis record and he helped produced it a bit, I feel old marshall likes to take credit for everything, are you not getting that confused with ol joey beltram?

    Oh, and when I saw them in 1981, they were supported by a New York electro / hiphop group and they had Futura 2000 doing graffiti behind them throughout the whole gig.

    Saw the film a few weeks ago, absolutely excellent. Couldn't believe JUST how much of a twat Joe Strummer was. Great music (mostly) and a great icon though.
    well big audio dynamite released a record on def jam really early on.
    it was black and pink tiger skin sleeve.
    futura did the radio clash sleeve too and the hardwritten stuff on the combat rock sleeve. They were down with nyc at that time.
    i still think they're mostly pretty awful though, and how can a twat be such an icon?

    Still, Hitsville UK is a big tune.

    Sorry, I just remembered this one as well.

    Top value - where else do you get stuff like this, eh?
