In the latest episode of Columbia House Party, hosts Jake Goldsbie and Blake Murphy are joined by Steve Sladkowski (@sladkow) of PUP (@puptheband) to discuss one of the most important albums of all time, The Clash’s London Calling. It wasn’t technically Steve’s first album purchase, but it’s close enough for the purposes of this month’s arc. Find out more about The Clash’s slower path to a monstrous third-album success, how London Calling pulled from dozens of sounds to influence dozens more, and why it’s so necessary to consume art with an appreciation of the context it was created within on this week’s podcast.
