Spike your hair up ala Simonon, raise the UK flag, and scream out with this week’s playlist featuring songs from The Clash.
Their music is straight-out punk but goes sideways when it comes to hints of influences. Their style is iconic, each member with distinct images. Mick Jones, Paul Simonon and Joe Strummer were The Clash and The Clash was them. They owned their music but the industry never owned them.
The Clash’s eponymous album from 1977 kicked the speakers in whenever it was played. From rhythmic numbers that give out a snapping drum line, a steady and powerful bass, and loud but controlled vocals – The Clash really knew how to mix things up to great effect. Their music is the epitomy of their name; it was a beautiful clash of powerful punk themes and political ideas. And everything was wrapped nicely in a punk package complete with UK flag for a ribbon.

Futuristic electronic duo Prince Rama reached out for a chance to test the Fisheye. Based on their energy and music, which involves elements of performance art, dance-club initiation rite, and vintage VH-1 hair-metal-bravado, we couldn't resist. We were not disappointed by what they came up with!
By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.
