In the aftermath of music's second revolution, among the negative energy, anger and nihilism, one voice was looking for solutions and answers rather than problems and questions. Joe Strummer celebrated the cultural diversity of Britain's capital, and wouldn't be restricted to the musical straitjacket or the uniform of post-punk gloom.
Joe dismissed small island mentality, and raised awareness of global issues before it was fashionable. For a generation that knew little about anything other than their own backyard, his words and music acted as a window to the world; exposing us to new countries, new experiences and new musical ideas.
Joe once said 'People can change anything they want to, and that means everything in the world.'
So, Be Whatever is my song for Joe. I hope you enjoy it. ETK.
