Merry Clashmas! This week Kyle and Matthew "rad" the Casbah with returning guests Chris Estrada and Kasey Clark. They give a brief history of the The Clash, followed by an album-by-album breakdown of the band's best (and worst) songs, their musical evolution and their ideology. They explore the band's politics and how much the band was a product of their time - for better and for worst. They also yell a lot because Kyle, Kasey and Chris are all insane Clash fans. If you are new to the band, this is a great primer. If you love The Clash, listen and yell and scream at us about what you do and don't agree with. They also discuss the post-Clash works of the various members and give some records to check out if you feel like expanding into the outer Clash-iverse. This holiday season, give someone in your life the gift of The Clash and drown out all that awful Christmas music with "London Calling."
