Sure, the late great punk icon JOE STRUMMER (21 August 1952 – 22 December 2002) was the utterly charismatic frontman of the last gang in town THE CLASH, but not everybody knows or remembers his solo career, with several great LPs and countless collaborations with other artists.
To honor the influential maverick a new retrospective album, titled ASSEMBLY, will be
out on March 26 via Dark Horse Records, the label that the late Beatle George Harrison started in 1974 and now is run by his son Dhani.
The 16-track album includes a never-before-heard acoustic home recording of ‘Junco Partner’ and live versions of The Clash classics ‘I Fought The Law’ and ‘Rudie Can’t Fail’
with his band the Mescaleros.
