Album of the week

I should really have a Van Morrison album this week as I'm going to see him at the SECC tonight. But why spoil a week listening to a grumpy old git, who to be fair has written and performed a few fair songs in his time, his time being the early seventies!!!

Nope, this week's album of the week is The Clash and London Calling. Probably a fairly standard album of choice for a lot of people who grew up with Punk in the seventies early eighties but the songs still sound great today. It was realeased around this time in 1979 and as a 20 something year old I can remember getting it as a present from my girlfriend at that time.

Anyway, for those nostalgic enough to remember it here is the tracklisting from, probably, the best punk album ever. Well apart from...... (and you'll be posting your own thoughts on what was the best punk album then!)
