Apparently both Scorsese and Robert De Niro were huge Clash fans and saw them during their famous series of seventeen concerts at Bonds International Casino in Times Square during May and June of 1981.

SONG of the DAY: NOUS NON PLUS – “J’en Ai Marre”.

A faux-French band with an authentically infectious rock sound. Though the name is French, Nous Non Plus (which means “Us No More”) is an American band from New York City. The group is faux-French, singing almost entirely in French and adopting French pseudonyms.
