Posthumous Party: Joe Strummer and ODB See New Light
This spring will see albums from two sorely missed artists from opposite ends of the musical spectrum. Joe Strummer, the former Clash frontman, and ODB, the Wu Tang’s most notorious member, will both be releasing previously unheard material. The Strummer release is an album from a pre-Clash band that he led in the mid-’70s called the 101ers.
Old Dirty Bastard was working on A Son Unique when he died of a drug overdose last year. The album will be released on June 21st amidst Dirty’s post-mortem baby mama drama: According to Billboard.com, ODB’s widow and mother of three of his children, Icelene Jones, intends to sue ODB’s mother and his former manager for any bling Dirt McGirt might’ve left behind.
