Ha thought you might appreciate the Rancid thing. He gets a bad rap cos there could almost be a chav rap thing going on, but the lad loves Rancid and the Clash, if a young Joe Strummer grew up in these here modern multi-cultural times ...well you never know. He was well known for handing out his own mixtapes at gigs in the early days, mostly featuring the Clash, Rancid, Bad Brains , loads of really good reggea/ska music and some really good Soul music.
go here for live/mixtape/b-side action.
I know you don't approve of downloading illegally but if you wanted to hear his albums/eps you could prolly search on blogs.
