Album Of The Day: The Clash – London Calling

The Clash London Calling AOTD

This album showed The Clash taking a lot of influence from other genres like ska and rockabilly and reggae and to me it takes it above their first two albums by a long way. Released in December 1979 it had a huge effect on the music industry with a lot of 80’s music taking massively from this album. Even things like Adam and the Ants, sound like a rip off of songs like ‘Hateful’. Excellent album that everyone (should) already know!

Best song on the album is ‘London Calling’ obviously!

The full album can be found here on Spotify
