On this week's show we're talking about one band, The Clash. Are they the only band that matters?
Danny Sigelman and Mark Wheat join me to discuss The Clash at what was arguably their peak in the late 70s and 80s, and we cover the two albums they came out with at that time. First Mark Wheat packs in the seminal "London Calling", which he finds captured the Clash full of confidences and souped-up on their punk credibility. Â Danny claims they upped the ante on punk with this album, and then drops to the next record, Sandinista!
Sandinista!, theirÂ triple album with 36 tracks (including my pick of the record, "The Magnificent Seven") covered so much musical ground. It included streaks of R&B, Hip-hop, American Routes music, and Reggae. They've given me so much music. What did you discover because of The Clash?
