VIDEO OF THE WEEK: Big Audio Dynamite – ‘Medicine Show’
February 5, 2018
Blending early hip-hop with sampling and rock’n’roll, Big Audio Dynamite were way ahead of the curve when this was released in 1985.
And in keeping with their style of mashing things up, the video owes a debt to Sergio Leone and his spaghetti westerns as much as it does ’80s gangster flick ‘Scarface’.
And check out the guest appearances from Mick Jones’ former Clash compadres Joe Strummer and Paul Simonon. And is that ex-Sex Pistol John Lydon opening fire there too? It ruddy well is!
