Clash City Rockers
Several weeks ago, PBS aired the Clash special. I watched it on Saturday on KCET and Sunday on KOCE. It was very inspiring to say the least. When you look at punk rock (or any other pop culture movements), it's amazing to think "wow, they came up with that!" To think that they began a whole new culture. Of course, and not just the Clash, but The Ramones and The Sex Pistols. Their onstage antics. The fashion statements of punk rock. You look at them and see how incredibly stylish they are. Saw this clip where he was wearing all white, black vest, and a red handkerchief hanging out from his right back pocket. Or the way they just like spray painted their clothes, and stuck to a palette of black, red, and white. I mean, you see that everywhere now, but think of the beginnings of punk rock. It never ceases to amaze me, thrill me, and excite me.
So, I ended up wearing an outfit inspired by the Clash.
