The Spirit of Strummer and Jones
At the weekend I decided it was time to reacquaint myself with the Airborne Toxic Event as it had been a while since I listened to them and with a new album and Glasgow gig in the next month it was about time. I decided to start with the second album, All At Once, in the past I have always reached for the debut but the follow up was the first to be pulled from the box. From the opening bars of the first some I had a feeling that this reminded me of someone but it wasn't until just after the four minute mark that it all fell into place, maybe it's just me but I think that Strummer and Jones had more than a passing influence on Mikel Jollett when he wrote this track..
