    Request for Matt! The Clash recorded the album with producer Guy Stevens at Wessex Sound Studios in London during August, September and November 1979, following a change in management and a period of writer's block for songwriters Joe Strummer and Mick Jones. Bridging a traditional punk rock sound and a new post-punk aesthetic, London Calling reflects the band's growing interest in styles beyond their punk roots, including reggae, rockabilly, ska, New Orleans R&B, pop, lounge jazz, and hard rock. Themes include social displacement, unemployment, racial conflict, drug use, and the responsibilities of adulthood https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/London_Calling

    #13 on the Countdown of KEXP Listeners Favorite Songs of the Last 50 Years! -- In my email when I typed in the address my first one is dj@kexp.org. I’ve been able to interact with you all in good times and bad. From coloring with my daughter to grieving my father when Kevin Cole played the full length original Purple Rain for me. I’ve loved the station for all of your personalities and the times I’ve “spent” with you all. Proud to support you! --Justin in Charlotte -- On "London Calling," The Clash put their own climate anxieties to paper, fearing future meltdowns and London drowning into the river.

    On "London Calling," The Clash put their own climate anxieties to paper, fearing future meltdowns and London drowning into the river. -- According to guitarist Mick Jones, it was a headline in the London Evening Standard that triggered the lyric. The paper warned that "the North Sea might rise and push up the Thames, flooding the city," he wrote. "We flipped. To us, the headline was just another example of how everything was coming undone."
