Album) welcomed him, sat him down and played him the mixes I had done that day. He sat unmoved, and when asked how he felt about what he had just heard, said he had several changes that he would like to make to each of them.
I politely informed him that that was a shame as I had finished them and had he taken the trouble to arrive at ten a. However, as he chose not to be there, he had missed the boat, as I was not about to do them all over again. He left even more displeased than when he arrived. Jones took himself out of the process, and Johns and Strummer worked together on what became Combat Rock.
The result is great-sounding but exactly half of a great album, with all the good songs helpfully placed on side one. What are those horns? Simonon grew up in Brixton slums, and knew West Indian kids from an early age. Then there came the day his father announced he was leaving — and a stepfather moved right in. But they eventually spent a year in Italy. Back in London proper, he fell in with kids in west London. One was Mick Jones. Simonon wanted to play in a band, but had never touched an instrument.
Jones suggested bass. Simonon balked. This is set to a monotonous rhythm and what sounds like a recurring hiccup, and a vocal by Strummer that finds yet one more wholly new approach to music on the out-of-control Sandinista!
He could howl like Dylan. He could pull off sincerity and sarcasm like Warren Zevon. Definitely some energy, but it fails to connect with me. One ended up getting shot by an NYC police officer. That led to this odd track. The Clash were firmly in favor of that. Particularly the U. You can check out the original here:. Wonder what Joe Black Cab - Laid - A Room From You (CDr have thought about Facebook.
The dubs on side six are interrupted by a remake of an early Clash classic by the children of keyboardist Mick Gallagher, from Ian Dury and the Blockheads, who provides a very pretty melodic setting for their vocals. Originally collected on Black Market Clash. Later collected on Super Black Market Clash. Supposedly a product of the Sandinista! That record had room for a lot, but not something like this. Ultimately released on the box set The Clash on Broadway.
This seems to be a Jones lyric, judging by the earnestness of the words; Strummer chimes in at the end to illustrate the voices heard on those mean streets. The rap is by Dread. Jones comes in at the end with one of his signature distinctive backing vocals. I forgot to mention Album), the drummer, who joined after the first album, and became, with Simonon, part of a pretty persuasive rhythm section.
Headon broke a leg while he was in high school, Black Cab - Laid - A Room From You (CDr, and was laid up for six months. His parents got him a drum set; with no lessons he taught himself to play. When the band was cooking, Headon was there stirring. Eventually he became a junkie. One day Headon and Strummer were in an elevator, Strummer standing in front. Headon eventually left the group. This is another one of those so-so songs on the second album.
Many could be forgiven for thinking the song celebrates Tommy guns, when in fact Strummer is actually mocking such bravado and pointing out the pointlessness of most human conflicts.
Jones is showing off the guitar fills and song arrangements that the band would soon master. But the so-so sonics and middling melody make this a second-tier track. A lazy, jazzy groove marked with a very long half-spoken vocal track by Strummer. Mikey Dread is given a writing credit. A very cool dance-club track at the time.
The sound collage and the gentle, troubled synth lines undergird the song unerringly, and for once the group-shouted chorus, though still overloud, conveys some wan meaning. The guitars chug, with both a point and a bit of majesty. Here, a dream of a punk-gospel hymn, brayed by Strummer:. The instrumentation is odd — a strummed guitar, a rambling piano, and maybe some synth strings. Version is a reggae word for a dub remix; the side is filled with dub versions of other Sandinista!
We went straight through Syndrum Inc. Lots of odd beats and sound effects, along with an unsubtle but funny TV commercial thrown into the mix. Toilet cleaner, hahaha. The song, articulated it might be said in heartfelt fashion, is about everyone following orders. The song retains a writing credit, the only one, I think, for Keith Levene.
But he has been derided, fairly or not, in the remaining histories as too druggy for the Clash. He was unquestionably the guide out of the punk world the band needed, and he led them to the pantheon, with a lot of screaming and chair-throwing along the way.
It was as if he envisioned how a band like the Clash could both deliver a masterpiece and remain true to its reason for being. Strummer did this tribute to him, which was finally released on the Clash on Broadway compilation. Stevens would have spruced it up. The band captures both the comic nature of the operation as well as the undeniable human cost.
While the Clash were in some ways stars in the U. Epic, a CBS subsidiary in the U. Crank it up! You have to remember that portraits of youth this bleak were not the norm at the time. The Ramones were goofballs in a lot of ways, and the Pistols up to no good. The Clash were earnestly trying to give voice to an underclass and happy to lecture or point if they saw a way out. All very energetic, and Strummer is perfecting his bark of a voice.
Docked ten notches for being a song about not having anything to do in fucking London. Kids, Jesus. A black sharp knife never slips And they never say to one another That tomorrow we might kill our brothers. If you say so, Joe. Two highly amusing things quickly transpired. First, the local mechanics who owned the birds, which it turned out were racing pigeons, came over, took away the guns, and started hitting the musicians with them; second, a police helicopter arrived to find out who the snipers were.
The guys ended up in Brixton prison. The band was also later arrested and spent a weekend in jail for stealing pillows and towels from hotels.
The prisoner is a kid just like the Clash themselves — aimless, flirting with drugs, and overall somewhat lame, particularly compared to his parents, who actually work:.
Hanging out the washing and clipping coupons And generally being decent. It was actually uncool back then to put out as a single a song that had already been released on an album.
The entire side remains an adventuresome and highly enjoyable listen. It was plainly the oddest song the band had yet recorded, and it was there on the first side of London Calling to let us know that the next four sides were going to be filled with surprises.
Stevens makes it come alive, with those goofy horns and an arrangement that makes it all sound deliberate. Note how Strummer totally delivers the outlandish vocal: He really was one of the very greatest rock singers of all time.
All one could do was respond with a cartoon, which is what the band did with this track, complete with comically deployed machine guns, howitzer barrages, and the occasional big boom. The arrangement and instrumentation are part of Sandinista!
This is not a haughty or prideful song. The Clash wrote about real life, and New York was where they were. The guitars, particularly the highly musical break, are great. Strummer turns the tune inside out and upside down, into something like a dub but with a carousel of sound from a sawing fiddle and burbly organ, and all against a strident reggae beat.
Here again he shows his skills as a gifted mimic and comedian, willing to go just about anywhere vocally to sell a song. So we danced with a rifle, to the rhythm of the gun In a glade through the trees I saw my only one Then the earth seemed to rise hell hot as the sun The soldiers were dying, there was tune to the sighing The song was an old rebel one.
But sometimes the audacity worked. Goebbels show! This is a jazzy, ululating interlude. Strummer comes out on the street to hear a hard-luck story from, I guess, a street bum, eager to tell him of his life, formerly in the ring, and reflections on the city around him.
Not the greatest production in the world, but another adventuresome track, with unmistakable Jamaican instrumentation and rhythms in what is really a quintessential New York song.
At this point, the Clash had adopted the city as their own, and Sandinista! Minus, of course, the girls. I feel like this is a Jones song: He always wore his heart on his sleeve. He had the same instinctive defiance of the world Strummer did, but always spoke more plainly and sympathetically, and without cant or rigidity:. The opening, which is in the original by the Rulers, is a quick look at Stagger Lee, a blues song with many variants that has been turned inside and out by many different artists over the years.
The song then lurches into a new song, a somewhat lachrymose look at the perils of gambling and cheating, which the band runs over at high speed. Written and nicely sung by Paul Simonon, who had started to catch on about publishing royalties, with creative guitar assists from Jones.
Selling is what selling sells But only saints on the seven avenues Can sell the seven hells. Funky multi-national anthem rocking from a thousand King Kong cassette decks And then a shyboy from Missouri Boots blown off in a sixties war Riding aluminium crutches. All of these words — blurted, cooed, ranted, in turn — are wrapped up in a tight, funkified beat with swooning melody lines and a manic band of backup singers that create a chattery, highly humanized world. Again, producer Glyn Johns, who actually knew how to mix albums, mixed Combat Rockand rescued the band from continuing the mess that had been Sandinista!
Can he still feel? You listen closely, and it really is needlessly cruel. It apparently has roots in a challenge from Rhodes to Strummer to write a song about the handsome, closeted actor, who famously had his face damaged in an accident and then drank and drugged himself to death over the next decade. That said, this is another irresistible track musicwise, another example of the guidance Stevens gave the band. The U. And it seemed like we were always on the wrong side: U.
