The Clash & Massive Wagons

Episode 137

Aaron looks at music from a UK band who adopted the nickname of a local barmaid as their official moniker while Brent highlights music from a London group often labeled as “The Only Band That Matters”.

Having just released their 6th studio album, “Triggered!”, just last month, Aaron spotlights three songs from the Lancaster, England band Massive Wagons.

Known for injecting everything from reggae and funk to jazz and hip-hop into their songs, Brent picks out three songs from The Clash.
