VIDEO OF THE WEEK: Big Audio Dynamite – ‘The Bottom Line’
July 1, 2017
Though Mick Jones’ ignominious dismissal from The Clash in 1983 led to the band’s slow decline and eventual demise, it also heralded a new beginning in the form of Big Audio Dynamite.
Jones’ interest in reggae was long established but he was the first member of The Clash to be smitten by the nascent hip-hop scene as far back as 1980.
He embraced the embryonic sampling culture and, with Big Audio Dymanite, hinted at where The Clash could’ve gone.
Indeed, Joe Strummer joined Jones for songwriting and production duties on B.A.D.’s second album, ‘No. 10 Upping Street’.
But this is their first single from 1985 and it’s one that’s worn the intervening years well.
