Big Audio Dynamite Tickets
Fans of Mick Jones’ manic guitar mayhem will be rejoicing at his explosive return. If the reports emanating from Big Audio Dynamite’s Reunion UK Tour are to be believed, Jones has lost none of the thrilling zip of old, rattling off impossible solos and filling arenas with his voice. The rest of the band seem in fine fettle too, with Don Letts (disc jockeying), Dan Donovan (keyboards), Leo “E-Zee Kill” Williams (bassist) and Greg Roberts (drums) putting on a great show. And the reunion is definitely long overdue, as far as fans of Big Audio Dynamite’s varied sound are concerned.
Formed in 1984, the band ruled the charts in a number of genres ranging from reggae to alternative to dance pop till 1990. Thereby, personnel changes prompted a couple of changes in band name over the next two years, before they fizzled out of the scene before the turn of the century. However, the big men are back sounding better than ever, leaving fans with Big Audio Dynamite Tickets thrilled in their wake.
Varied musical direction has been a feature of Big Audio Dynamite and indeed, much of British music in the 80s. The band has delved into hip hop, reggae, funk, dance music, alternative as well as punk rock over the course of its nine studio and seven compilation albums. Mick Jones has been the only constant in a turbulent sea of flashing personnel changes for the band. Jones was born in Brixton, South London and attended Strand School as a kid. He had a penchant for guitar-playing from a young age and after the disbanding of two of his bands, he got together with Joe Strummer, Tony James and Paul Simonon to form "The Clash". Through the late 70s and into the 80s, "The Clash" was a fantastic success, but Jones’ punctuality issues led to the band firing him in 1983.
He formed TRAC (Top Risk Action Company), which folded after various band members were dismissed. Bassist Leo Williams stuck around, however and was in the initial lineup of Jones’ new band Big Audio Dynamite. Also instrumental in its formation was popular London punk and reggae DJ Don Letts, who had popularized the Roxy club and also made films like The Punk Rock Movie as a director. Roberts and Donovan also joined later.
The debut album This is Big Audio Dynamite was released in 1985. The band then saw a return of Joe Strummer for their next album. Big Audio Dynamite continued to rule the charts throughout the 80s till "Free" became the last track featuring the original lineup. Only Jones remained for Big Audio Dynamite II, as it became known, from 1990 onwards (Donovan did a song but left soon afterwards). For three years, Big Audio Dynamite II released a UK-only album and a successful worldwide release album The Globe. In 1994, Big Audio became the new name as one further album came out with the assistance of newly recruited band members Michael Custance and Andre Shapps. Jones and Nick Hawkins spearheaded Big Audio Dynamite’s latest reversion to their original name from 1996 to 1998, a period which yielded two albums. The project went quiet after that as Jones got into Carbon/Silicon with Tony James. In January 2011, plans for a shock reunion became public and soon the UK rocked to the tunes of the legendary outfit.
"The Bottom Line" became their debut hit, but it was "E=MC2" that really set the charts ablaze climbing to #11 in UK and being a trendsetter with its complex sampling techniques. "Medicine Show" also reached #29 from the Gold-certified debut album. No. 10 Upping Street became their highest charting album, reaching #11, with Silver certification. Tighten Up, Vol. 88’s "Just Play the Music" hit #1 on the Modern Rock Charts, while "James Brown" (#2) & "Contact" (#6) from Megatop Phoenix nearly hit the summit. As Big Audio Dynamite II, Gold-certified The Globe spawned the hits "Rush" and "The Globe".
Fans will be scrambling for Big Audio Dynamite Tickets following encouraging reviews from the UK Tour. Mick Jones’ swagger is still as imposing as ever and his ability as a singer as well as a showman is unquestionable. The outfit has toured the world in many concerts over the last three decades and Glastonbury, Bestival and V Festival dates await.
