The Clash: Combat Rock - Columbia - 88697159311

£20.99

Product description

The Clash, a band immortalised as pioneers within the British musical landscape, in terms of their role in establishing punk rock. However, within the genre and as developing artists in their own right they remoulded, and imparted new and creative paths to punk rock by colouring their music with elements of reggae, dub, funk, ska and rockabilly.
This album makes for a fascinating study of the group, it not only being a succinct and creatively potent manifestation of all the band had striven to be in the years previous, but offers also a sensitively sentimental and historical insight in to a band that were falling apart. However, far from detracting from the cohesion that made this group so effect, it details and relieves the energy and passion that constituted the groups drive and force.
The appreciation and commercial success the album garnered, are fitting compliments to the work and technical skill to a band who were achieving musical maturity. Professional rock critic Robert Christgau wrote of the album, that it expresses "higher level of verbal, musical, and political density." In similar vein, Alternate Press magazine crowned it "the penultimate Clash album ... employing lessons learned in the previous three years ... their most commercially rewarded release ... containing [their] most poignant song 'Straight to Hell'."
In excellent condition, the vinyl is as brand new with a minute amount of dust and no scratching. The box is pristine, and the package is protected by a plastic sleeve.
