Music Review: “London Calling” – The Clash

by Saira Viola

Joe Strummer was imbued with the soul of a poet, the prophetic vision of a Wiseman, and the knuckle fisted passion of a rock genius.

This remains one of the key albums of their creative ladder. Booming social polemic immersed with storming guitars and the lyrical delicacy of a young Mick Jones.

There are so many different influences contained within the one album from the Reggae inspired: Rudi Can’t fail to the youth rallying: Guns of Brixton. Every single song trumpets a feeling. This album is 24 karat.
