Mick Jones Says The Clash Was Writing New Songs Before Joe Strummer's Death
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 10.04.2013



It's just a thought of what might have been now, but according to Mick Jones we nearly had one last Clash album. The guitarist spoke with BBC 6Music and said he was writing songs with frontman Joe Strummer shortly before his death.

Jones said that the songs were set to be recorded by Strummer's band The Mescaleros, noting, "We did write some more songs together and he was going to do them with The Mescaleros. We wrote a batch - we didn't used to write one, we used to write a batch at a time - like gumbo. The idea was he was going to go into the studio with The Mescaleros during the day and then send them all home. I'd come in all night and we'd all work all night."

He continued, "That didn't come to nothing because that wasn't going to work, we knew that but it was a nice idea. Later on, a few months later we were at some opening or something and I said, 'What happened to those songs?!' If you didn't do them straight away and get them back straight away, it was like, 'What's wrong with them?!' So, I went, 'What happened to the songs?!' He went, 'Oh man, they're the next Clash album'."

Strummer passed away suddenly in 2002 as a result of an undiagnosed congenital heart defect.
