Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros “At The Border, Guy”


I’m way too late to the game with The Mescaleros, but this song from the excellent Global A-Go-Go is bubbling right along today and I need to gush about it.  This is a great example of building a propulsive groove out of the simplest parts.  The guitar/keyboard riff is incredibly basic, but matched up just so against the constantly shifting beat and BAM!

RIP, Joe Strummer, your music lives forever.
