Singer Joe Strummer and guitarist Mick Jones were sent to Jamaica for two weeks in December 1977 to write songs for their upcoming second album. “We must’ve looked like a strange pair to the locals… I’m surprised we weren’t filleted and served on a plate of chips” noted Jones. “We went down to the docks and I think we only survived because they mistook us for sailors.”
