8PM – 10PM: REVROCK PRESENTS JOE STRUMMER & THE LATINO ROCKABILLY WAR
Following his time with The Clash, Joe Strummer worked on a variety of soundtracks, most notably for the Alex Cox films, Sid & Nancy and Walker. The Latino Rockabilly War was the backing band Strummer put together for music on the film Permanent Record, which starred Keanu Reeves. The band consisted of Zander Schloss (guitar), Lonnie Marshall (bass), Jack Irons (drums) as well as Willie McNeil on drums for select tracks. Five songs recorded during this time were featured on the Permanent Record soundtrack, Trash City, Baby the Trans, Nothin’ Bout Nothin‘, Nefertiti Rock, and the instrumental track Theme from Permanent Record.

This line-up was also featured on the Earthquake Weather, Joe Strummer’s first official solo album. Released in 1989, the album was initially not received well critically, but that has come to change with time, garnering more of a cult following. Earthquake Weather experiments with the influences of rockabilly, folk, funk, reggae, world music, and pop music. Many feel this album is an early incarnation of the sound the Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros would bring forth a decade later. The Latino Rockabilly War also toured with Strummer as his backing band for his Rock Against the Rich tour in 1988/1989. This episode will feature music from Earthquake Weather, songs from the Permanent Record soundtrack, some live recordings, and B-sides from this period.

CJAM FM presents a rare live performance by Joe Strummer &the Latino Rockabilly War. Recorded on June 23, 1988 at The Fridge in Brixton. This will be presented uninterrupted, as if you were there yourself to hear the live show. A perfect compliment to the Revolution Rock special preceding it.

11PM – MIDNIGHT: JOE STRUMMER DAY CLOSER
Station Manager Brady and Program Director Carley return to close out the 24-hour marathon to feature nothing but Clash B-Sides from their single releases over the years.

A Perfect Circle at The Fox Theatre

_APC1703

Known largely for their hardball stance on cell phone use, A Perfect Circle’s 2017 tour recently made it’s way through Detroit, and we sent our in-house photographer, Lauren Hedges, to capture some photos for you to peek at (since you won’t have all those awesome blurry Snapchats to look back on).

During the show frontman Maynard James Keenan announced a new album from APC, as well as a promise to return to Detroit in the near future. Earlier this week the band was announced as part of 2018’s Rock on The Range in Columbus, Ohio. They’ll be playing alongside MJK’s side project Tool, Ice-T’s Body Count, Andrew W.K., and more. 2018 is shaping up to be another great year for live concerts.

Check out more photos from the show on the CJAM Facebook Page.
