This used to be a favourite at a club I ran in Edinburgh in the early 90's. A mix of reggae(I think produced by Mikey Dread?) and punk, with a real hot Brixton summer day feel about it. Now it sounds cool kickin out of my subs in St Kilda, but it brings back memories anywhere.

This trck is brilliant - I remember seeing The Clash in the early 80s and this song was a highlight - the clash had it all - and this song shows them at their best - respectful of the reggae tradition and a reminder to punks everywhere that the roots of punk are in the protest music of black musicians.

This is one of the sweetest clash songs EVER!! If you haven't listened to it yet, you don't know what you're missing! The music is great; it's very laid back and relaxing. Might not be for hardcore punks, but it's worth a listen. This is the Clash at their best!!
