Somewhat shockingly I only have a burn of Rock Art and the X-Ray Style the 1999 debut album by Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros. This is something that I should clearly rectify and would make it a New Year's Resolution if I did such a thing.
The opening track is named after the former Arsenal and England footballer Tony Adams who at the time was in recovery from a history of alcohol abuse. He went on to found the Sporting Chance clinic amental health charity for current and former professional sports people. I'm not quite sure what that has to do with the song. Maybe Joe was an Arsenal fan?
Yalla Yalla on the other hand according to Joe is an ancient British folk song ... written in the year 1999.
I saw them at the Glasgow Barrowlands on Friday 6th October 1989 promoting this album and paying £6.50 for the privilege.
