Consequence of Sound and Sony Music Entertainment have partnered together for another season of The Opus, a podcast that explores legendary albums and their ongoing legacy. The sixth season has taken it back to 1979 and The Clash’s legendary album London Calling. The English rockers opened up all the rock ‘n’ roll doors their fellow punk colleagues had slammed over the last decade.
Host Andy Bothwell, aka Astronautalis, will be joined by guests throughout the season including Brit Daniel (Spoon), Lee “Scratch” Perry, Laura Jane Grace (Against Me!), Joe Ely, Hamilton Leithauser (The Walkmen), AJJ (fka Andrew Jackson Jihad), Fat Tony (Rapper), Donita Sparks (L7), Yeek (Singer), Lauren Denitzio (Worriers), Chardine Taylor-Stone (drummer for Big Joanie and Civil rights activist), Joseph Patel (filmmaker Vice/MTV Docs), Vance Wallenstein (Head of Design for MOMA PS1) and Dan Reilly (Rolling Stone/Spin/Entertainment Weekly).
Together, they discuss how London Calling didn’t need to be punk to prove how punk it was, how it didn’t need to be a giant arena record to prove how much it rocked and how it managed to introduce all kinds of culture with zero pretension.
“London Calling is the biggest season of The Opus yet, and that’s not an overstatement. Each episode is fueled by a revolving door of guests that not only bring justice to the legendary double album, but shed a new light on it,” shares Consequence of Sound’s Editor-in-Chief Michael Roffman on this monumental season of The Opus. “Host Andy Bothwell is also thinking outside the box behind the boards to deliver a true audio spectacle each week. Rest assured, diehard fans of The Clash who come in will no doubt walk out in a brand new Cadillac.”
