The Clash - London Calling album FLAC

London Calling is the third studio album by English rock band The Clash. It was originally released as a double album in the United Kingdom on 14 December 1979 by CBS Records, and in the United States in January 1980 by Epic Records. The Clash recorded the album at Wessex Sound Studios in London during August, September and November 1979, following a change in management and a period of writer's block for Joe Strummer and Mick Jones, the band's lead vocalists, guitarists, and lyricists

London Calling, the third album by English rock band The Clash, was released on December 14th, 1979 in the United Kingdom and January of 1980 in the United States. London Calling has impressive subject matter coverage; topics range from racial conflict, unemployment, and drug use to safe sex, the tragic life of actor Montgomery Clift, and social displacement.

12/13/2014 by Kenneth Partridge. On the opening title track of its third album, London Calling - a rock'n'roll landmark released 35 years ago this week, on Dec. 14, 1979 - The Clash approached doomsday as only it could. Instead of lamenting the end of days or fantasizing about some anarchic future, like their peers The Sex Pistols did, these ice-cold Londoners slicked back their hair and stood tall in the face of World War III, environmental collapse and whatever else loomed on the horizon. A nuclear error, but I have no fear, frontman Joe Strummer sang.

London Calling is the third album from The Clash. The iconic cover photograph of bass player Paul Simonon smashing his guitar to pieces was taken by photographer Pennie Smith at the New York Palladium in 1979. Simonon was reportedly unhappy with the band's performance, and wrecked his guitar during the final song White Riot. He later gave the watch he wore that night to Smith as a present, broken as he swung around his guitar, the hands stuck at ten-to-ten. London Calling (3:20).

The Clash are a rock band" ah yes. thank you pitchfork. i went this entire album not knowing what genre i could put this in. no idea at all. great album though. the punk album that shaped the mold made to be broken in the music form. fav tracks: rudie cant fail, lost in the supermarket, the card cheat, train in vain, london calling. 13. 3y. Atrocityblubber. 97. This album bumps so hard. 94. London Calling they said they want the queen back. The quintessential double album! Smash a guitar, have a cigar.

The Clash’s third album, 1979’s London Calling, is where their brilliance comes together in a 19-track tour de force that uses the energy of their punk origins and employs it in a number of new stylistic directions. Reggae-dub underlines Rudie Can’t Fail, Wrong ‘Em Boyo, Revolution Rock, and bassist Paul Simonon’s unnerving The Guns of Brixton. Rockabilly and surf chase the cover of Vince Taylor’s Brand New Cadillac.
