Hey guys

Remember the Clash? Probably the best punk band in my opinion, though I like their non-punk stuff more. They really did some varied music, with reggae and new wave influences among others. Great music and one of my favorite bands.

I'm not going to share them today. Their singer Joe Strummer went solo after the bands break-up. He's a great musician and he made some good tunes, despite being pretty unknown. I think we should change that.

Here's a track from his second solo album Global a go-go. The album draws heavy influences from world music and is really good. I recommend it. The track's called Global a go-go. You recognize Strummer's style if you've heard the Clash as well, he sings in a very special way. Anyway, here it is: (Track's in spotify and youtube)



Enjoy!

  2. Yeah, I've always dug the Clash but Pete Townshend gets my vote of awesomeness for being the first musician to destroy his instrument as part of the act!
