  • On September 10, The Clash will release a huge box set called Sound System. According to guitarist Mick Jones this will be "the greatest box set ever." The set will include all five LPs, three disks of singles, a DVD of the band's music videos, and SO MUCH more. As if this wasn't cool enough, the box is designed to look like an 80s boom box.

This almost makes me feel brave enough to try having my own public dance party and seeing if anyone will join. I have feeling I wouldn't be as lucky as the girl in the video. [Stereogum]
