Clash - Interview With Joe Strummer mp3 album
Joe Strummer, March 1977. By the turn of the year, punk had become a major media phenomenon in the UK. On 25 January 1977, the Clash signed to CBS Records for £100,000, a remarkable amount for a band that had played a total of about thirty gigs and almost none as a headliner. In an October 2013 interview with BBC 6Music, Jones confirmed that Strummer did have intentions of a Clash reunion and in fact new music was being written for a possible album. In the months prior to Strummer's death, Jones and Strummer began working on new music for what he thought would be the next Mescaleros album.
Strummer also co-produced the album. Their reunion did not last long, and following that collaboration, the two did not work together again for some time. Big Audio Dynamite's third album, Tighten Up, Vol. 88, featured album cover art painted by the ex-Clash bassist, Paul Simonon. Shortly following its release, Jones developed chickenpox and pneumonia, and spent several months in hospital. After his recovery, Jones released one more album with Big Audio Dynamite, Megatop Phoenix, before reshuffling the line-up, renaming the band Big Audio Dynamite II and releasing The Globe album.

He's renowned for his work with The Clash, but the work the band’s singer wrote and performed outside of the legendary group is to be released on an upcoming new Joe Strummer album. The 32-track compilation, called Joe Strummer 001, was created with the help of Strummer’s widow Lucinda Tait. It will be the first album to encompass Strummer’s music career outside of the seminal punk rock band he left the 101’ers to join. It will feature solo material, along with music by Strummer’s pre and post-Clash bands the 101’ers and the Mescaleros, and 12 previously unreleased songs.

Before his death, Joe Strummer could hardly get arrested. Afterwards, he was feted as a rock icon. This is the inside story of the solo years struggle of a punk rock warlord. This interview has taken weeks of negotiation, the former Clash icon seemingly wary of a stitch-up. After years in the wilderness, his self-confidence is shattered, his bullshit detector twitching. But he was right to be wary. When The Clash imploded following their feeble 1985 swansong album Cut The Crap, the singer seemed poised for multiple careers as an actor, composer and musical journeyman. In 1986, Strummer buried the hatchet with Mick Jones, the former soulmate he had acrimoniously sacked from The Clash, co-writing and co-producing the album N. 0 Upping Street for Jones’s new band, Big Audio Dynamite.

It's true that Strummer never played in a band better than the Clash, yet his talent and ambitious creative vision was clear regardless of the context, and the 2018 collection Joe Strummer 001 is a testament to his restless muse and the depth of his work as a tunesmith
We'd been talking to Sony for a long time about what we might do, but the moment a lightbulb went off over my head was when they told me they'd uncovered lots of unseen, unused interview footage with Joe Strummer," says Quirk. I thought 'oh, 15-20 minutes, that's fine, I can get 3-4 usable minutes out of that'. But it was hours and hours: more than two dozen DVDs. It was from when they sat down to do Westway to the World: Joe in front of a camera being interviewed about the entire arc of the band's career. Quirk sees The Clash as fitting into a narrow line of bands whose impact went far beyond their fanbases to shift the direction of popular (rock) music. The documentary is also aimed at communicating this to younger YouTube and Google Play users, a decent chunk of whom may not even have been born when the band released their fifth album Combat Rock in 1982.
