THE CLASH Released Their Double Masterpiece Album ‘LONDON CALLING’ 40 Years Ago Today…

14 December 2019

Legends THE CLASH released LONDON CALLING, their best album – a double one – on
14 December 1979, 40 years ago today. A monumental record with the band mixing a
lot of different musical genres such as reggae, rockabilly, ska, New Orleans R&B, pop and lounge jazz. Lyrically, the songs were about social issues like inequality, unemployment, racial conflicts, drug abuse and our climate’s ugly future. The final result was a bold, multi-faceted and overall astonishing achievement. The double longplayer scored big time, worldwide, with sales of over five million copies.
