Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros
Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros -- Live At The Brixton Academy, 2001.
One of the most polished shows the second (and best) Mescaleros lineup would give. Everybody has the Global A Go-Go material down pat and it shows: Tymon Dogg ravages his fiddle on Bummed Out City, Joe is all over the stage during Global A Go-Go, and the entire band is energetic all night. Highlights include Minstrel Boy, Mondo Bongo and Blitzkrieg Bop, largely because I don't think I've ever seen those performed on video prior to this recording, but the whole show is pretty terrific. A lot more focused and musically diverse than the '99 gigs. Setlist: 01. Minstrel Boy 02. Junco Partner 03. Cool 'n' Out 04. Global A Go-Go 05. Rudie Can't Fail 06. Bhindi Bhagee 07. Armagideon Time 08. Shaktar Donetsk 09. Police & Thieves 10. Mega Bottle Ride 11. Tony Adams 12. Mondo Bongo 13. Johnny Appleseed 14. Bummed Out City 15. Police On My Back 16. The Harder They Come 17. Pressure Drop 18. I Fought The Law 19. Bankrobber 20. Yalla Yalla 21. Rudy, A Message To You 22. London's Burning 23. Blitzkrieg Bop. Enjoy!
