December 2013: Joe Strummer Month at Wonderland
December 22nd will mark another anniversary since Joe Strummer's death in 2002. This year, I thought it would be nice to run a month-long tribute to Joe, celebrating his life and the huge contribution he made to music.
For those who aren't into The Clash or even music, December on Wonderland will still see some film related goodies. I'll be reviewing the Arrow Academy release of 'The Long Goodbye' on Blu-ray, and also Arrow's second stab at Dario Argento's 'Tenebrae', which was a victim of a sub-standard master first-time round that Arrow could do little with. I'll also be taking a look at the BFI Player, which is an essential tool for film buffs resident in the UK. The end of 2013 will see my list of the top ten discs of this year, so plenty in store for film fans.
Going back to music for a moment, and in 2014, Wonderland will be undertaking month-long specials on The Slits, The Jam, Manchester Music and Punk Rock in the '70s which will include British and American bands.
Until then, here's Joe.
