Cholo Vest

Joe Strummer's Earthquake Weather had an excellent single- Island Hopping- as good as any of his solo stuff. The 12" came with three extra songs including Mango Street, an wonderful extended version of Island Hopping. A second B-side song was this one. Cholo Vest has a really pretty, latinesque melody which is completely at odds with the wilderness years, self loathing lyric.

'Nobody thinks about you when you're gone
No kind memories linger on'

Cholo Vest
