Side 1 of a mixtape, originally recorded 13th February 2002. I was too young for The Clash to be 'my' band at school, but Big Audio Dynamite were a different proposition. This Is Big Audio Dynamite is an incredible album and the 12" mixes were equally thrilling, chock-full with samples, beats and incisive lyrics. The original BAD line up - Mick Jones, Don Letts, Leo Williams, Dan Donovan and Greg Roberts - was unbeatable, but there was an added thrill when Joe Strummer reunited with Mick Jones to co-write and co-produce second album No. 10, Upping St. I never tire of listening to these records.
