To mark the 25th anniversary of the Clash's third album, Sony will reissue a special edition of London Calling on September 21, 2004.
I remember the winter I discovered London Calling. That cassette secured a permanent home in my Walkman for months. It got me from Jane to Islington station and back every day of that stark, cold winter. I thought it was the greatest rock album I had ever heard. It sounded good, these guys were saying something and they were passionate about it. In the years before grunge, it gave me a reason to believe in rock.
Happy birthday London Calling and thank you. Thank you for everything.
