Sunday Slaylist: 35 years of singles by The Clash

March 18th, 2012

The Clash Sunday Spotify Slaylist Thrash Hits

On 18 March 1977, The Clash released their first single – ‘White Riot’. While The Clash – or at least the initial line-up of Joe Strummer, Mick Jones, Paul Simonon and Topper Headon – had formed the previous Summer, it was the release that first introduced them to the world at large. That it was released 35 years ago today gives us the perfect opportunity to look back at the works of one of the most – and it could easily be argued the single most – important punk band of all time via a Spotify Slaylist.

Thrash Hits Verdict: 
Is “retro” a dirty word? Are we doing the history of metal a disservice by referring to bands as “traditional” metal? Should we just shut the hell up, and stop trying to pigeonhole every damn band in the world? Isn’t it about time we featured a band in Future Hits that we heard about through genuine word-of-mouth – as in “a band someone we met in a pub told us about”, rather than “someone emailed us a Facebook link”? That’s where a band like Amulet come in. We dropped an email to band’s guitarist, “Heathen” Steven, to ask him some similarly pointed (and similarly dickish) questions.
