See some memories of Joe Strummer and the Clash that were emailed to Terre and Hova during this show.

NOTE: For this show only, the music bed is The Clash "Version Pardner" from Sandinista (sony cd reissue from 1999, also on original 1980 epic lp). Ignore the note below, it's built into my playlist template and I can't take it out!!

Note: The music bed between sets is the william orbit remix of pierre henry's "psyche rock" taken from the 1997 album metamorphose -- messe pour le temps present featuring the music of pierre henry and michel colombier (FFRR/polygram 4562942).

The last column may have tons or NO info depending on how reliable my notes are. (I write up the set list as I play it)

Here is the bio of Janie Jones from AMG:
Janie Jones was the real-life inspiration for the song of the same name on the Clash's first album, though few of the group's American fans ever learned the full story behind this British weirdo. A mid-'60s cabaret performer with more of a snarl than a voice, she was more renowned in London for her parties than her music, and gained some of her biggest headlines in 1964 by attending a film premiere in a topless gown. She had a small U.K. hit single (#46) in 1965 with the Halloweenish novelty "Witches Brew," and issued several other 45s in the 1960s that, with their burlesque camp, were a lot closer in spirit to Mae West than the swinging '60s. When she tried to play it straighter with songs by the likes of Jimmy Webb and British hit songwriters Carter/Lewis, her vocal shortcomings were all too apparent. She remained on the fringes of the public eye with a marriage to songwriter John Christian Dee (author of the Pretty Things' great early British Invasion raunch classic "Don't Bring Me Down"), but didn't really hit the papers until a seven-year prison sentence in 1973 on a charge of controlling prostitutes. After her release from jail in 1977, she got Joe Strummer to write a song for her, "House of the Ju-Ju Queen," which she recorded with the Clash in the studio; it was released on a 1983 single credited to Janie Jones and the Lash. She published her memoirs, The Devil and Miss Jones, in 1993. — Richie Unterberger
