Classic 12-inch Singles: BIG AUDIO DYNAMITE - THE BOTTOM LINE


What a fantastic start. Right out of the gate....
In 1985. The debut single from Mick Jones' post-Clash project had everything we could have all hoped for. Great guitar, wonderful chorus, Hip/Hop beats and samples......it was ....just...."Cool". Strange how things would go downhill from here, but for a few minutes in early 1985, We all didn't know what to think of Joe Strummer kicking Mick out of the Clash. Then the Clash put out "Cut The Crap" and Mick and Co. put out THIS. Who could argue otherwise that Joe had made a terrible mistake. Of coarse later the two would patch things up. Joe appeared on the second Big Audio Dynamite album and it was almost like a mini-Clash reuinion. We all held on to that small glimmer of hope that it was only a matter of time before the Clash would re-form again. Joe's heart attack and death at age 50 had changed all that. Sad. But let's get all mopey and maudlin. Let's just listen to the first single from B.A.D. In all it's forms. (and it's B-sides as well). Sounds as good now as it did 25 years ago.

Sometimes, only closer relatives of humans such as mammals and other vertebrates are meant in colloquial use.The biological definition of the word refers to all members of the kingdom Animalia, encompassing creatures as diverse as sponges, jellyfish, insects and humans.

There is a place where the sidewalk ends
And before the street begins,
And there the grass grows soft and white,
And there the sun burns crimson bright,
And there the moon-bird rests from his flight
To cool in the peppermint wind.

I do not love you except because I love you;
I go from loving to not loving you,
From waiting to not waiting for you
My heart moves from cold to fire.

I love you only because it's you the one I love;
I hate you deeply, and hating you
Bend to you, and the measure of my changing love for you
Is that I do not see you but love you blindly.

Maybe January light will consume
My heart with its cruel
Ray, stealing my key to true calm.

In this part of the story I am the one who
Dies, the only one, and I will die of love because I love you,
Because I love you, Love, in fire and blood.
