Me pasaron un line up prematuro de Coachella. Nada sobre el rencuentro de los Smiths, sólo Morrisey solito, solimán, solapas. Probablemente con covers de sus amigos los New York Dolls. Van fotitos del año pasado.
¿Sabía usted que...? En México a Village People se les conocía como Los Aldeanos.

Totalmente de acuerdo. Clash es la revista del año.
