‘Armagideon Time’ (The Clash)
(12 inch single – B-side of ‘London Calling’)
As the opening bars of choppy organ come in and Joe Strummer’s reverbed moans float out of the speakers, 10 year old frowns. Then Joe starts to sing.
10 year old: It’s a bit weird!
She frowns some more. Then screws her face up.
7 year old and 3 year old were in bed but come running downstairs at the sound of echoey dub bass.
7 year old: Heyyy, this is good.
Three year old does a funky bum-sticking-out dance in the middle of the room and waves his arms around a lot
“What do you think?”
3 year old: Good!
7 year old” Yeah!
10 year old shakes her head in disgust
