Mick Jones (The Clash) and Tony James (Generation X), aka Carbon/Silicon, release their latest tune and video, "Big Surprise".

It’s a truly lovely video, with Londoners of all stripes holding up lyric cards to the tune. The song is life-affirming and optimistic, a nearly perfect Spring song. Meanwhile, for those of us who happen to think London is heaven on earth, the video imagery serves to remind us of why we fell in love with the town in the first place.
