Mail Music: Tributes in a Clash of their own; JOE STRUMMER TRIBUTE King Tut's, Glasgow, December 22 *****.


IT'S hard to believe a year has passed since the untimely death of the former Clash frontman.

At this gig, tribute bands lined up in aid of the Strummerville Foundation, which helps young and skint musicians.

And from opening band Combat Rock, it was clear this would be a special evening.

While Clash City Rockers and Complete Control were predictable, Fractal Jacks' Armagideon Time had a refreshing thrash metal feel.

Glasgow band The Golden Hour delivered good versions of Bankrobberand London Calling while Strummer would have approved of Stoma's take on Death Or Glory and Should Stay.

Nibushi Shang Hong pleased with Police On My Back while Freeview's Coma Girl and Catcher's Janie Jones and Police & Thieves also went down well. But the real highlight was The Counterfeit Clash with Rudi Can't Fail and Garageland.
