The Only Band That Mattered, Except to ABC

So ABC has two new hit tv shows this season, Desperate Housewives and Lost. I watch them both, and they’re quite good.

They’ll probably be pulling in piles of money from the advertisers. So maybe someone there didn’t have to be such a dick about some video from twenty-four years ago...

I was reading in Harp magazine about the new re-release of London Calling by The Clash. There’s the original album, a bonus disc of outtakes and rehearsals, and a dvd with videos and a documentary. They were also hoping to include the band’s legendary 1980 appearance on Fridays, on ABC-TV. But the aforementioned dicks at ABC allegedly demanded too much money for the footage.
