Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros – Unreleased Tracks

Joe Strummer & the Mescaleros - The Hellcat YearsJoe Strummer would have been 60 this year. Before he died, the former Clash frontman was working on a very underrated project called Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros. They released three great albums, and earlier this year, a 57-track digital compilation — Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros: The Hellcat Years — came out. Now, Hellcat Records just reissued all three studio albums — Rock Art and the X-Ray Style, Global A Go-Go and Streetcore, with more unreleased tracks.

Take a listen to a live version of “Yalla Yalla,” which was the b-side to the 2003 single “Coma Girl,” and stream five more tracks, including covers of the Ramones’ “Blitzkrieg Bop” and Jimmy Cliff’s “The Harder They Come,” on NME.
