Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros

Global a Go-Go

Hellcat 80440.2

Released on July 24, 2001


The second solo album from the only former CLASH member that matters. Of course, we're talking about TOPPER HEADON, oh, umm-er... Eleven sparkling new tracks that take the folk and world music influences of Rock Art and the X-Ray Style and broaden them further with waves of fiddles, mandolin, accordians, polyrhythmic foundations, and JOE STRUMMER's ceaseless politically-charged vocals.

Joe Strummer was a legend in his time. This cd can atest to that. The Clash always had a different sound and made people stop and listen, and this cd continues to do so. Every song on here has its own feel to it, like each song came from a different region of the world. I always believed that a song was a good song if it could change your mood or mindset and most of these songs do that for me.If you're some narrowminded twat looking to be like everyone else, then this cd isnt for you. If yo're one to stray from the norm, than go for it

R.I.P. Joe Strummer

This is actually my favorite Mescaleros album. It still contains the diverse playing of "Rock Art and the X-Ray Style" but in a more developed fashion. "Minstrel Boy" is the greatest instrumental song for me. "Johnny Appleseed" is flawless, as is "Bummed Out City." It's a fantastic album.

Global A Go-Go is a very beautiful sounding album. It blends & experiments with so many different sounds and styles of music and that you just can’t describe its sound with one or two words. It truly has a global sound. However, I’d suggest buying the absolutely prefect album “Streetcore” first before purchasing this one. Streetcore has more of a straightforward rock sound which makes it a better introduction to Joe Strummer’s solo work. Once you’re done rocking out to Streetcore then I suggest you give Global A Go-Go a good listen. Enjoy!

With the exception of the final track, this is a perfect album. I love comparing this album to those first few Clash records to see how Joe's style has changed and remained the same. This isn't Clash-type stuff, but I think it's better on the whole. The songs are catchy and well-written. It gets a 5.
