The Clash Artist Snapshot:

The Clash was one of the first and most important British punk bands. In the 1970s, they were the Beatles to the Sex Pistols' Stones, and went on to incorporate elements from all the roots music they loved--reggae, rockabilly, soul, blues--without ever straying too far from their punk roots and their political commitment. Their landmark 1979 double album, LONDON CALLING, stands as one of the finest achievements of rock's post-Beatles era. Mick Jones, Paul Simonon, and Joe Strummer all went on to other projects after the Clash (Big Audio Dynamite, Havana 3 AM, Strummer's solo albums). Plans to reunite for their induction to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame were pre-empted by the passing of Joe Strummer in December of 2002.

Product Notes

Bursting at the seams with creative energy, the Clash's stunning 1979 double album more than made up for the artistic and commercial disappointment of its predecessor, 1978's tried-too-hard Give 'Em Enough Rope. With ex-Mott the Hoople producer Guy Stevens harnessing their sound as never before, the band yielded what proved to be the best work of their career. Bouncing from hard rock (the apocalyptic vision of the title track) to rockabilly ("Brand New Cadillac") to reggae ("Rudy Can't Fail") to pop (the Top 40 hit "Train in Vain"), the Clash knocked down all musical walls and, in the process, ended the argument over punk's viability in the U.S. --Billy Altman

By Punks NOT Dead!
Too good to be confined by the definition of punk? Maybe. From any point of view, this is wellcrafted, original, and urgent music.
