London Calling - The Clash (AotW#2)

Post by Splasher on Sat Nov 03, 2012 4:25 pm

Ok guys, most of the suggestions I got for this week were just bands, not actual albums, so I chose this one.

Album of the Week #2

This week's album of the week is the 1979 release from The Clash; London Calling.

This album was The Clash's third album and definitely their most successful and well-known. The music is a perfect combination of the classic British punk that was breaking through in the late 70's/early 80's and reggae, which manages to bring a sound that is not just laid-back, but also grand.


London Calling


Train In Vain

Personal Standouts

Death or Glory

Lost In the Supermarket

My other personal favourites are Rudie Can't Fail and The Card Cheat. Everything about this album is pretty much perfect. The album may be one of the most iconic shots ever, and the cover itself is influenced by the typography on Elvis Presley's debut album. This album has influenced the current punk scene in ways we can't fathom. If your favourite current punk band wasn't influenced by this album, chances are they were influenced by another band who were inspired by this 19 track masterpiece.

Any suggestions for next week's AotW?
