Big Audio Dynamite/The Clash + other songs with SW sound bites


(Vancouver James) #1

Any Clash or Big Audio Dynamite fans out there? On BAD’s first album there is a song called Medicine Show with lots of Leone sound clips in the the song.
I hadn;t heard the song in a long time but recently caught it on XM satellite…great tune.
The Clash were big fans of SW’s.
BAD was Mick Jones group after the sad split up of the Clash.
Also check out the cover of the Clash’s second album…Givem Enough Rope…pure SW!

for a few months there was a cd released that you got for free when you bought a music magazin, ithink it was the english magazin mojo. the cd contains remixes of morricone songs. not all of them are from spaghetties, but its a cool cd with very nice modern remixes. I think you can buy the cd for a small price on ebay

the cd is called MORRICONE RMX

there´s also a great reggae compilation, at the time of the spaghetties in the mid 60, on jamaica the spaghetties were also very popular. you have an artist called THE REAL CLINT EASTWOOD, TRINITY and probably mutch more. but trojan has released a very nice cheap cd called FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE (WESTERN INSPIRED REGGA)- VARIOUS ARTIST.
I think you will like this cd since you also like the clash and they are also very inspired by reggae. they even made a complete reggae album 8)

Fatboy slim, Norman cook or whatever you wanna call him did a track with BEAT’S INTERNATIONAL called “Dub ,be good to me” or is it just be good to me? and it sampled “Harmonica” from Once upon a time in the west.

The rapper Jay-Z has also sampled “Ecstacy of the gold” on his Blueprint 2 album. i think the track’s called “h.o.v.a.” not sure.

and i can’t remember the song but some dance thing in the late 80’s / early 90’s used “El Indio’s” pocket watch music but i can’t remember what the damn thing was called.

There’s a song on Metallica’s Black album with an SW style intro. They obviously like SW’s as I remember going to see them live back in the early 90’s and as an intro they had the Ecstacy of Gold scene played on a big screen and the music playing loud enough to make you deaf! Cool.
