                   though the clash's fingerprints are all over
                   today's alternative and pop (see green day
                   and the offspring, among others), their
                   influence is not acknowledged often enough.
                   "burning london: the clash tribute"--a
                   beguiling collection that features such diverse
                   groups as
                   third eye blind, silverchair, cracker,
                   afghan whigs and rancid paying homage to
                   the pioneering punk quartet--goes a long
                   way towards putting their contribution in
                   proper perspective.


                   several of the twelve bands invited to cover
                   the clash's music on "burning london" are
                   among the era's finest purveyors of
                   ska-punk, a sub-genre that likely wouldn't
                   exist in its current incarnation
                   without the clash's joe strummer and mick
                   jones. no doubt kicks things off with their
                   spirited take on hateful (featuring
                   background vocals by billy idol), which is
                   followed by an equally raucous rundown of
                   this is radio clash by the urge. the
                   mighty mighty bosstones sound completely
                   in their element on the cheerfully reverent
                   cover of rudie can't fail, while the
                   cali-via-omaha quintet 311 gives a
                   distinctly '90s tinge to white man in
                   hammersmith palais.


                   "burning london" features some
                   surprises as well. the more intriguing (and
                   likely the more controversial) performances
                   are from artists who, on the
                   surface, have nothing in common
                   whatsoever with the record's honorees.
                   folk/ acoustic rock goddesses the indigo
                   girls, for example, transform clampdown
                   into their own creation--but it's that kind of
                   style-flipping that made the clash
                   themselves such iconoclasts. should i stay
                   or should i go, one of the band's
                   best-known tunes, is turned inside out by
                   ice cube and mack 10, who, thanks in part
                   to a devastating korn sample, turned the
                   typically clashian rave-up into an evil
                   gangsta jam. finally, techno titan moby's
                   rendition of straight to hell--which
                   features some
                   appropriately trippy lead vocal work
                   from heather nova--is so strange, it sounds
                   like it was waxed on another planet. all in
                   all, a brilliant set of interpretations by some
                   of today's most creative musical minds.
