It all started for me when i saw a video for the bottom line on the tube, I saw Mick and wanted that record in my hand!
Got the record and fell in love with this Sandinista type of music, samples,rap,guitars dance versions,US remixes the lot, i always feel that Mick was the most creative and musically open member of the clash, whereas joe to me released great records,micks seemed more experimental!
So I had the record Bad were touring so off I went to see them, (oh to be young again) no money but hitch hiked to see a few gigs!
They released 9 albums and i must say they are all favourites of mine but if you must only get one i say get megatop phoenix saw them tour this album some great songs on it! Mick does rave!
I was blown away by big audio dynamite and to be able to get close to the group after the distance the clash had put between their fans was great,it was just like the clash starting again!
BAD were in existence for longer then the clash funny that! Im hoping they will do some dates in the uk i wont have to hitch this time!
As mick said I turned out a punk!
For download i have The Bad files vol 1 there are actually 7 volumes if you want me to post more please comment!
