Amoeba Review

Joanna Ricco 05/26/2010

There are, it seems, two schools of British punk—The Sex Pistols and The Clash. Sort of a Beatles/Stones, cats/dogs, chocolate/vanilla thing. The most important thing to remember when discussing these pairings is that it’s not like one outshines the other—there are no wrong answers, it simply boils down to a matter of personal taste. In the case of The Clash, their furious debut album The Clash (1979, Epic) presented a new style of British punk that combined elements of reggae, ska and dub into the mix. This raw album changed the way that music of dissent was perceived, and re-angled the way over-stimulated youth expressed themselves. In essence, it embodied the mood of the disenfranchised, while pushing the notion that there’s more to the mood. As such, it is an important inclusion in the history of punk music, no matter which side of the fence you fall on.
