Toasty Taranna #13: BMV #13: 3-For-$10 Bin #9: Joe Strummer And The Mescaleros – Rock Art And The X-Ray Style
This debut album with the Mescaleros sounds influenced by caribbean music, ska and reggae, as well as electronic music and African beats… Strummer liked to mix styles! And still, everytime I hear his voice I hear the Clash… call it conditioning. But it’s refreshing to hear him making such fun-sounding, beautiful music with a top band. Sunshine in your soul! A lot of this music is for dancing, even when the news is dire. Slower tracks (like Nitcomb) make this a perfectly-balanced listening experience.
Yessir this is the good stuff!
