14th December, 1979.
Forty years ago exactly.
In the UK, The Clash released seminal double album ‘London Calling’.
There’s no way you can understate its quality and brilliance. It’s a towering, extraordinary piece of work, a true rock and roll landmark.
’London Calling’ has long been considered by a multitude of critics, fans and self-appointed expert aficionados alike as one of the greatest albums of all time, in any genre.
And they’re right.
Because it is.
I’m not saying that because I’m a fan, I’m saying it because it’s FACT.
Combining elements of British music past with the latest sounds on the working class London streets, ‘London Calling’ presented not only an overview of what UK music meant, but where it could go.
Coupling Mick’s impressively expansive music vision with Joe’s profound, sneering, immediate and often hilarious lyrics, the band capitalised on their potential and run rampant.
The result is amazing: reggae dub, rockabilly skank, pure pop, anthemic rock, splashes of ska, jaunty balladry and some bonafide rock and roll classics fused together into an enormous LP that never outstays its welcome and clearly stands the test of time.
It’s a perfect illustration of WHO they were, WHAT they were trying to say and WHY they were THE ONLY BAND THAT MATTERS.
There’s no debate: ‘London Calling’ IS one of the greatest albums of all time.
Happy fortieth birthday.
Rest easy, Joe Strummer. I miss you.

Day 1𝟑 - 𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘚𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘯 𝘚𝘵𝘢𝘳𝘴 ~

Stories are the building blocks of memories. Pops of red from this iconic bank of telephones outside the High Court and opposite the Seven Stars make the perfect story, reminding me that I'm back to make more memories, before popping in the Seven Stars.
The Seven Stars is a Grade II listed public house at 53-54 Carey Street, Holborn, London. It is unusual for having survived the Great Fire of London. It's thought to have originated in the 17th century, and it is dated 1602, and was formerly known as The Log and Seven Stars.

While the frontage may bear the date 1602, the building itself is likely to date from the 1680s. Most of the clientele are lawyers and law students, it being near one of the Inns of Court and the High Court. It's small inside which can be cosy if you go when it's not busy and cramped otherwise. Go for the history and ambience, and the Seven
Stars cat… there is always a cat... the food is pricey but we still love coming here.

It's perhaps a sense of foreboding that London Calling turns 40, in the aftermath of one of the greatest political travesties of our time.

It is an album that blended punk, ska, reggae, rockabilly and jazz. It explores themes of racial tension, political oppression, social displacement, drug use and everything in between. To this day, it remains one of the last great masterpieces of British music.
How we could do with an album like this today. And how we could with band like The Clash today. "Without people, you're nothing. That's my spiel". - Joe Strummer.

Den 14 december 1979 var en fredag. Jag var 17 år och direkt efter plugget åkte jag och min kompis Anders in till stan och till den då helt nyöppnade skivbutiken Pet Sounds på Jakobsbergsgatan. På disken låg travar med Clashs tidning The Armagideon Times som man fick med sig på köpet. Mitt exemplar ligger sedan dess tryggt kvar i konvolutet.
Death or Glory, nu ska grannarna ha sitt!💥
