It's about time they touched Joe's portrait back up. It was starting to erode under taggy chickenscratch.

Thanx for the vid, Grieve. I had never seen it before. Must admit that I got more than a little dewey-eyed while watching it. Cheers

i like strummer's pose better now. i always thought the old one looked kind of "oh, dear, look at the time. i must dash away now."
