Earthquake Weather Tour

Joe Strummer and the Latino Rockabilly War
Joe Strummer: Vocals and Rhythm Guitar
Zander Schloss: Lead Guitar and Vocals
Lonnie Marshall: Bass Guitar and Vocals
Willie MacNeil: Drums
Jack Irons: Drums

cdr - good but thin - Sound 3 - 84min - unknown gen? - 23 tracks

A few copies down, this has a below average sound. It has a decent mix but distortion and some noise, the first tracks on the way back are way below par for the rest of the tape too. The front side improves slightly as it goes along as well.

The vocals, drums and bass all come across reasonable, the bass being distorted the most. The other guitars can be heard.

I don't remember the tracklist… Long time ago. I just remember he started with Sleepwalk. I also remember that bored by a guy calling for a Clash song (don't remember which one actually), Joe started to speak the first verse of this song and ask ironnically "satisfied?'.

Nov 10 Trenton, NJ at City Gardens
I saw Joe on the Earthquake Weather tour on Friday, Nov. 10, 1989, in Trenton, NJ at City Gardens, an old-school punk club about an hour or two from NYC. I think a local band opened. In a notebook I kept at that time I scribbled down some songs he played: "Gangsterville," "King of the Bayou" (I remember folks laughing at the line "She'll just say we were drunks who couldn't make her come"), "London Calling," "Police & Thieves," "What's My Name," and "I Fought the Law."

I also noted that I didn't know a lot of the songs he played; he could have done more from "London Calling" but since at that time I had only the first two Clash albums I wouldn't have known it. I also remember people calling for "White Riot" and he said "I'm sorry, I hear your request but I can't play that song," very seriously.

I got there early and Joe walked right by me in the dark club; I could see the oil glisten in his hair and noticed he was wearing an intricate Western shirt. I said, "Hey Joe!" but he had his eyes closed, just nodded, said, "Right, right!" and kept going.
