Paul Simonon's Music Memory

Frankie Laine - Rawhide

“It’s some tune. I grew up in Brixton. We didn’t have a TV in the house so after school I’d pop over to my friends house who had a TV. They used to regularly watch Rawhide. It was so exciting, with the whip-crack and the lines about ‘don’t try to understand ‘em, just rope, throw and brand ‘em’… it was really evocative. At that time, in the early 60s, being a cowboy was quite an attractive job to a young kid.”
