forgot we had this dvd of a doc about joe strummer, but we watched it last night. it seems like the first time we saw it (a screener i borrowed from kristian lin), there was a sequence where you see the mural that appears just fleetingly at the end of the dvd being painted. curious. the dvd has a ton of interviews that weren't used in the film. i've got them playing on random scramble now. proud to say i saw him twice with the clash, autumn of '79. some people are bigger than life.
