Led Zeppelin, The Black Keys, Joe Strummer!

RP really rocks today!!
This is a desert island rock album for me! It's so joyful and driving and whenever I'm feeling low, I put this album on and it never fails to pump me up. RIP JS!
Thanks RP or I would have never heard this post-Clash noise (and I mean that in good way)
Just turn it up 
One of my top 10 albums of all time - maybe 5...

These guys always seem to be having fun on their songs...
man I miss Joe Stummer
{#Devil_pimp}so zesty! the entire cd is excellent ! rip joe
Joe was an all-time great!! - and not just musically.
always happy to hear this one in the rotation 
Instant 8 with room to grow...(on me)
 
Shameful; but I have to admit I didn't know who this was :(  Thank you RP for yet further enlightenment...
Proud to say that Joe Strummer is never not on my playlist!
Poor Joe... you had so much more to give us.
 
Gone too soon.
Fit's for this  day..
Rockin set man.
Another great musical (ad)venture from Joe Strummer. Definitely made his mark while among the living. Humble Opinion.

...and a brilliant follow-up by RP coming off of QMS. Once again setting the bar for all radio stations and listeners. Thank you
Mighty Joe, rockin' the dead man's party! 
Wow do they sound like the Clash! Love it!
Güzel hemde çok iyi 
I just find this annoying. Different strokes ...

Mucho Agree-o.  A garage rocker at it's damn-near finest.  I'll match your 9 sir.
Joe's not gone, he's become...a deep sea snail! 

(I don't know what drug you have to take to see a resemblance...)

Deep sea snail A. strummeri, named after Joe Strummer. I DON'T see the resemblance 
Deemed punk rock, snail named after The Clash singer Joe Strummer

MOSS LANDING >> Deep sea snails living in the dark, hot and acidic environment around hydrothermal vents are pretty punk rock, scientists have concluded.

Like rock stars with mohawks brooding in leather jackets studded with spikes, the snail genus Alviniconcha shares a spiked shell.

“Because they look like punk rockers in the 70s and 80s and they have purple blood and live in such an extreme environment, we decided to name one new species after a punk rock icon,” said Shannon Johnson, a researcher at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute. 

The name A. strummeri honors Joe Strummer, the lead singer and a guitarist of the British punk rock band The Clash.

The golf ball-sized snails rock out near hydrothermal vents at the bottom of the ocean, as deep as 11,500 feet. They look identical but are in fact separate species, Johnson confirmed after studying their DNA.

The lead author, Johnson published the findings this month in the journal Systematics and Biodiversity. The paper introduces five new species found in the Western Pacific and Indian Ocean. 

It’s not uncommon to name species after celebrities and cultural icons. To name a few, there’s a Bob Marley crustacean parasite, a Beyoncé bee-like fly and Lady Gaga genus of plant. One scientist named a species of jellyfish after Frank Zappa in hopes of meeting the musician. And it worked.

But scientists mostly use celebrity names in a “shameless bid” to draw attention to their work, taxonomy and biodiversity said Quentin Wheeler, director of the International Institute for Species Exploration at SUNY. 

“In our culture, it is one sure way to get species noticed,” Wheeler said. “Some scientists frown on the practice, but their science is in trouble, and if a little humor helps, why not?”

As long as scientists follow the international codes of botanical and zoological nomenclature, they name species as they wish.

“This gets people excited about science,” Johnson said. “Otherwise, people might not see these snails.”




Me likey like!

drums. 
this is so funky and messy and fun
I Respect Joe Strummer, but I found all "Mescaleros" works really weak and annoying in all senses. 
..has a Big Audio Dynamite circa mid-80s vibe to it..and that's not a B.A.D thing (oh wait, yes it is)..heh! see what i did there?..

..7 >> 8..

Yes, this song is soooo good for the external auditory meatus...

Sure do.  They even showed up last summer at Lollapalooza in Chicago, and were fairly well received by today's hipsters. 

Nice to see Mick still out slugging it out in 2011.  Joe must be smiling somewhere. 




Pretty cool...never heard it before, thanks for the horizon expansion.
always liked this one...


awesome...

 
Great song. Great band. Great dude.

I got to see the last 4 shows they did in Brooklyn. A perfect mix of mescaleros and clash.


Yes...  we be dancing...

 


Just started dancing early today...  this will be an active day...  love it...

 
Joe and the Mescaleros: EASILY one the two best shows I've ever been to (at the Troubadour and at the Fillmore). Damn, they ROCKED. He rocked. He loved that band. He loved these songs (and Clash songs too).

This was Joe sounding a little like them.

And the Clash too!
 

Joe was much better on his own than BAD or the Clash IMO.{#Yes}

"The I-95"? I guess this is Joe's homage to East Coast hip-hop...? Anyways, it kicks arse, as per usual from the skinny god. :)


Yea Joe!!{#Dancingbanana}{#Dancingbanana_2}{#Bananajam}

Loving this


This song is soooo good for the ears...


Hey, nice, merry tune. Out for a jog!

Yes, on my ipod, had to revert to that since this song is just awful.
MAN I gotta get this album!
I love this album, it's great to hear a song from it on RP.
This song is bad. And I don't mean bad as in "good". I mean B.A.D. as in Dynamite!

You couldn't have been going that fast if they caught you on horseback. This disc is fantastic, so sorry it was Strummer's last.
That is a great story. :clap:
This is... Bowie-ish.
I think I just broke something in my chair!!

Mick and Joe collaborated on B.A.D's "No. 10 Upping St.".
This is how I like to remember Joe Strummer - rockin' and having a good time, with a big pumping heart underneath the hood. :guitarist:
This is real rock!

So much great overlooked music from the post Clash era. Joe & The Mescaleros! Now some BAD to round off the set. Go RP
Like the guy said: "It's the acid test" Solid gold indeed! 8/10

Re other comments, IS the lead singer dead? What happened? When?
From Wikipedia: Strummer died on December 22, 2002 in his home at Broomfield in Somerset, the victim of an undiagnosed congenital heart defect.

Hey hey, I'm wearing a vest too. So? This song would be tolerable as an instrumental, since the beat is great, but the lyrics, or lack thereof, are simply annoying. Let the verbal abuse begin since I am sure there are some folks who think their opinions are better... :fight:
Strummer is very underrated as a lyricist, in my opinion. Great images, wordplay, highly unique.
