The Clash : All the Albums, All the Songs

The Clash : All the Albums, All the Songs

Description

Formed in London in 1976 by Joe Strummer, Mick Jones, and Paul Simonon at the outset of that city's punk rock boom, The Clash went on to outlast their peers and create some of the most influential albums in rock 'n' roll--not just punk--even breaching the mainstream in 1982 and earning the title "The Only Band That Matters" along the way. In their eight-year career, The Clash offered six CBS Records studio releases, including one double and one triple LP, and increasingly melded influences ranging from rockabilly to ska, reggae, and even hip-hop into their sound. Veteran music journalist Martin Popoff dissects each of the 103 tracks, including the circumstances that led to their creation, the recording processes, the historical contexts, and more. In addition, an introductory essay sets the scene for each album, while sidebar features explore influences on the band, album art, non-LP singles, the band's staunch political stance, and song details, such as running time, instruments played, engineers, and studios.
