CLASSIC THREE night three :: AFT covers LONDON CALLING / The Clash
September 27, 2019 @ 9:00 pm - September 28, 2019 @ 12:00 am
Throughout September, El Rocko and A Fragile Tomorrow have teamed up for CLASSIC THREE, a residency covering three influential albums not often heard live.
Night Three, AFT has chosen to cover London Calling by The Clash…
‘Any punk band worth its leather and studs can do dystopian, apocalyptic angst. The world is always ending, and after garbage men and plumbers, angry young guitar players have some of the best job security around. The trick is to rage in your own unique way. On the opening title track of its third album, London Calling, The Clash approached doomsday as only it could. Instead of lamenting the end of days or fantasizing about some anarchic future, like their peers The Sex Pistols did, these ice-cold Londoners slicked back their hair and stood tall in the face of World War III, environmental collapse and whatever else loomed on the horizon. Over the course of 19 tracks, The Clash goes careening through rockabilly, reggae, soul, R&B, ska and Phil Spector pop.’ One of the most remarkable punk records of all time, no one in their genre will ever capture the same feelings to such a big audience ever again.
A Fragile Tomorrow is band from Savannah, GA. The quasi-psych pop act, with members who showcase their talents at local music studio Low Watt Recording, has worked tirelessly to properly perform these songs. A set of AFT originals will start out each evening. Listen the their latest record, Generation Loss, below.
