Today’s Clash related post is on Big Audio Dynamite, Mick’s post-Clash project that mixed hip hop and punk in a way nobody had done it before. At the time, George Clinton and Prince were merging rap with rythym and blues, but nothing like this. This isn’t rock/rap either–it’s nothing like that lame-ass Limp Bizkit shit. This was a true synthesis of styles, without posturing. It wasn’t whites trying to sound black, in other words.
From November 12, 1986.
A few tastes and a zip.
