Chuck Prohet & The Spanish Bombs: London Calling (Live, 2011)



While hypothesizing about Chuck Prophet's record collection (see HERE), I left out a number of probably obvious choices, not least among them being The Clash's London Calling. To celebrate my and Chuck's shared love of London Calling here's a great-sounding live recording of Chuck and his pick-up band, The Spanish Bombs, doing the album in its entirety.

  3. Well, this is one I just gotta hear. Still remember hearing "London Calling" for the first time. Amazing. Nearly missed my {paid for) college dining hall dinner listening to the last note. (And back then every meal counted.)

    1. I remember as 13 year-old sneaking out of bed when I was sleeping over at friend's house because his brother had the LP where I could pore over the lyrics (I only had the cassette version!)

  10. Didn't know this existed! Awesome! Saw Chuck a few years back, and he said he was high on cold medication - the music was great that night, but his between-song banter was even better. He was hilarious.
