The Clash

Sandinista!

Sandinista!
Album
UK Release Date: 12 December 1980

Controversially released as a 'triple' on three vinyl discs, the record shows the group on a creative roll, adding dub, rap and jazz to an already diverse musical palette.

Taking its name from Nicaragua's left-wing rebel force, the album tackles subjects including US foreign policy, Vietnam, and Cold War tensions.

Recorded in Jamaica, London and most significantly New York, where the growing hip-hop scene inspired The Clash to write the first ever UK rap record, The Magnificent Seven.

Voted album of the year by the Village Voice (US).
