When Mick Jones was booted out of The Clash in the summer of 1983, his old band claimed he’d become a lost sheep. Was it so wrong to fall under the spell of drum machines, synthesizers and sampling? One of the better pop examples of the time was 1985′s “This is Big Audio Dynamite”, now released in an expanded 2-disc CD package. Besides the remastered original, the set includes 12-inch mixes and previously unreleased material.
Hear this classic on KZSC along with other sounds from the Reagan Era Saturday mornings between 10 AM and noon on “Living in the 80′s”. You’ll also have a chance to win a copy of “This is Big Audio Dynamite: The Legacy Edition” this week so be sure to brush up on your 80′s trivia. Good luck!
