This Is Big Audio Dynamite
Released: Jan 1985
This release took everyone by surprise in 1985. Mick Jones, late of the Clash, revealed an astute pop ear and tasteful magpie tendencies by combining rock, early techno and name-them-if-you-can movie clips into a genuinely innovative whole. Nothing else (aside from the genius Colourbox) sounded anything like this at the time, and Jones' snarling swagger bathed every release in PiL-period Lydon credibility. "Medicine Show" remains a breath of fresh air to this day, and always will.
