THE CLASH

Post by BABY SHAKER »

yet another band I need to pay more attention to.
still to this day, I am seeing artists cite them as influences. artists that I never would have guessed.
especially targeting joe strummer and his writing abilities.

would anyone care to talk about his/her favorite clash moments and/or records?
I might just start with obtaining the first release and chugging right on down the track, chronologically.

pick up their first album from 1977
then pick up London Calling from 1979
easily their 2 best albums
their later albums are kinda shitty
they were one of the first rock/punk bands to use reggae in their music
(them and Rush circa 1980)
London Calling is pretty much a masterpiece.

Fingerless is right.

But my fav is Sandinista! Their double album opus
Also the Julien Temple doc about Strummer is well worth watching

I like em all.

Combat Rock was the first I bought and it's still been my favorite.
love the track "Red Angel Dragnet" and "Straight To hell"
