A Musical Interlude: Carbon Silicon “The News”

Carbon Silicon are a band I’ve only recently discovered. Their frontman Mick Jones, I know from years back when he played with the Clash. I don’t actually know him personally, but he was a regular customer, when I worked in Our Price Music in Notting Hill Gate (1989-1990). This tune I like because it reminds me a little of the Clash and tunes like “Bank Robber”, it is also about good news, which seems quite subversive when we are constantly bombarded with bad news by various media outlets.
