“Yeah, I know we’re supposed to be…I know the human race is supposed to get down on its knees in front of all this new technology and kiss the microchip’s circuits. It don’t impress me all that much.
When there ain’t nothing but “You make! You buy! You die!” That’s the motto of America! You get born to buy it!
And I’ll tell you, those people out in East L. A., they ain’t gonna stay there forever. And if there’s anything going to be in the future, it’s gotta be from all parts of everything, not just one white way down the middle of the road!
So everybody out there grow up – FOR FUCK’S SAKE!”
– Joe Strummer, from the stage of Steve Wozniak’s US festival, Memorial Day weekend, 1983.
