There's a big problem about Paul's real house hold name. I know that 'cause I've read a Belgian interview by punk/new wave specialists about or more than 25 years ago. If my memory don't fail, it was written in an independent journal called "En Attendant" or "MORE".***Google images shows Paul Simonon and Paul Simenon. Anyway, I'm quite sure it is SIMENON.***For instance this link: http://punk77.co.uk***or this one : http://www.urbanimage.tv/browse.htm?loc1=punk&loc2=clash%20posse&loc3=paul%20simenon& ***I'm awaiting without any comments...
