WE ARE NOT THE CLASH You form a band with one intention To get laid and get attention OK, maybe you have several things in mind But before you get a pay check You must vomit in the tape deck And accept that the results will be maligned At first you’ll play all your creations In assorted odd locations For no money and for even less applause But you can beat the competition Needn’t be a real musician You just need to accept all of your flaws We aren't the Clash Or the Ramones We can't surpass The Rolling Stones We are not spiders We're not from Mars We're just some kids With some guitars Well our third gig was at a temple Yeah, the crowd was so judgmental Although I must admit we were not at our best We should have known that we were doomed When the kids all left the room And we drove home so fucking depressed I can’t forget the crone who paid us She did not quite berate us But she did ask if we’d like some advice I don’t remember saying yes But somone did, I guess All she said was, “Have you tried to be nice?” We aren't the Clash Or the Ramones We can't surpass The Rolling Stones We are not spiders We're not from Mars We're just some kids With some guitars We are not beastie But we are boys We're just some kids making some noise We're neither Velvet Nor underground We're just some kids making some sounds

about

In 2016, Bill, Jay, Sandy, Tim, and Tommy spent a night at The Loft, the recording studio in Bronxville, NY where Too Much Joy first started recording. They were there to bash out a cover of “We Are The Clash” for a tribute album to Cut the Crap, the Clash’s worst record, which came out on Record Store Day 2017. Four bottles of wine later, they’d not only finished the Clash tune, but had written and recorded a new, more realistic one: “We Are Not the Clash.” This EP also includes a Joe Strummer cover from volume 2 of the tribute album, which came out on Record Store Day 2018.

Too Much Joy Scarsdale, New York

TMJ is/was a punk-pop band of some minor renown. Some of that renown was due to their music, which included semi-hits such as “Crush Story,” “Donna Everywhere,” and “That’s a Lie” — a cover of the LL Cool J tune that featured the man himself in the music video, which actually got played quite a bit during daylight hours on MTV back when they did that sort of thing. ... more
