Back with a bang

It’s been more than 20 years since the original BIG AUDIO DYNAMITE line-up rocked the world with their groundbreaking reggae-fused rock, and now after enjoying his stint with Gorillaz, Mick Jones has announced the band’s reformation – and a Leeds show…

For Jones, the reunion represents unfinished business; carrying on the creative spirit of The Clash, whose frontman Joe Strummer co-wrote and produced B.A.D’s second album, No. 10 Upping Street.

The album is scheduled for a deluxe re-issue this year and will include several previously unreleased Strummer/Jones songs. Exciting.

The band are playing at the O2 Academy Leeds on Thursday, April 7 before heading off to the Californian desert to bring the tour to a close in style at the Coachella Festival.

Tickets go on sale on Friday, January 28 from HERE at 9am.

Incidentally, the Guardian has written a great blog about why BAD were more infulential and pioneering than The Clash. Read it here.
