246 – The Clash – London Calling (1979)
Written by Joe Strummer and Mick Jones
Produced by Guy Stevens
Label – CBS
The point at which The Clash graduated beyond their provincial entrapment and became the worldwide prospect they would never admit to. There are no apologies to the punk movement they had left behind; and the fully fledged assault on America was within their line of sight. At this time they were like a band of brothers, still smarting from the criticism of their previous record, “Give ’em Enough Rope”. The “Last Gang In Town” surviving through an apocalyptical landscape with passionate solidarity, guts and trust in each others commitment to the cause. Glorious.
