Tony Adams is such a good fucking song, loving this album. Had it on a bit too loud, baby started crying, I got a bollocking but I can honestly say it was so worth it.
I don't want to be too negative here but I found all of Joe's post-Clash albums a little lacking. Some great songs here and there but a real lack of good melody in places and not many rocking out songs. He was only in his Forties, you are allowed to kick up some shit at that age still. We needed more Coma Girls and Rockin' Worlds and less Nitcombs and Gamma Rays.
Hello,

Agreed. Joe could still rock and that was my favorite of his inclinations (does that make sense?).

I agree that the rock-ier songs work really well, but I really like the world sound of Rock Art, it was different and creative. Goes back to what Flex was saying at the end of the day about having different ears.

Nice. I listened to that live album last night when I got home from the pub.
Kool Moe Dee was in the Treacherous Three
