Clash Clones

One of my top ten all-time bands is The Clash. They won’t be making any more music because Joe Strummer died in late 2002. But there’s a great new band that sounds a lot like them.

They are called The Libertines and their most recent album, Up The Bracket, was produced by The Clash’s Mick Jones. Just listen to the second song, called Death On The Stairs, and you’ll think you are back in 1979 listening to London Calling.

I found out about this band from a discussion between Jason Chervokas and Tom Watson about Tom’s post on Johnny Thunder.
