For their second album, the Clash worked with the American hard rock producer Sandy Pearlman, best-known for his work with Blue Öyster Cult and the Dictators. The teaming was quite controversial within the punk community, and the sound of Give 'Em Enough Rope is considerably cleaner, yet the more direct sound hardly tamed the Clash. While the record doesn't burn with the same intense, amateurish energy of The Clash, it does have a big, forceful sound that is nearly as powerful. What keeps Give 'Em Enough Rope from being a classic is its slightly inconsistent material. Many of the songs are outright classics, particularly the first half of the record ("Safe European Home," "English Civil War," "Tommy Gun," "Julie's Been Working for the Drug Squad") and "Stay Free," but the group loses some momentum toward the end of the record. Even with such flaws, Give 'Em Enough Rope ranks as one of the strongest albums of the punk era. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Sex Pistols vs. The Clash, the yin and yang of punk

It’s a bit like Motown and Stax, Rubinstein and Horowitz, Miles Davis and John Coltrane: while many view the Sex Pistols and The Clash as twin bands, they’re actually more like opposites. Johnny Rotten’s gang and Joe Strummer’s band may well have been on the forefront of the punk movement, and yet everything divided them. Or almost everything.

The Golden Age of American Indie Rock in 10 Albums

After a decade dominated by synthetic music, guitars made a vigorous comeback in the 90s. They made their way into all corners of independent rock, independent from the system and the mainstream. An alternate style that was born out of the subversive and homemade spirit of punk found in Lou Reed's Velvet Underground as well as Iggy Pop's Stooges. Let’s take a look at 10 essential indie rock albums from the 90s.

A voice of underground New York as well as a street poet, Lou Reed will forever remain the embodiment of the Big Apple’s rock ’n’ roll. Throughout his solo career, the Velvet Underground’s former leader sang/talked like no other, narrating the darkest corners of his soul and his peers’.
