The Clash were a punk rock band from London, active from 1976 to 1985. One of the most successful and iconic bands from the first wave of punk late 70s. At the beggining they incorporated doses of reggae, rockabilly and classic rock to their three first albums, but later the also combined new wave, funk and disco, even with some keyboards and electronic sounds. They were legendary for their uncommonly intense stage performances, political principles and indisputable attitude. Different than nihilist Sex Pistols or anarchist Crass, they always confirmed their attraction for socialist ideas as well as libertarian.

Again with the same formule, The Clash attacked with new album just a year later of its debut. Here their is sound is frankly more clean and well produced, and musically they perhaps incorporated few hard-rock influences, with more important guitars and less presence of bass and drums. Lyrically is exactly to their debut and in fact all the rest of their discography too: social issues, politics, third world, anti-war, anti-consumerism, etc. This album is truly good and some people even prefer it to their debut one.
