Unauthorised item in the bagging area

Sir Joe of Strummerville is a regular visitor to these pages. This song shuffled up on the journey home the other day. Sleepwalk is almost the epitome of Joe's post-Clash, late 80s, pre-Mescaleros, wilderness years- off the flawed Earthquake Weather album; no frantic Strummered electric guitars, no rama-lama, just Joe, some acoustic guitars, some Latin percussion and a beaten down, rueful vocal. It is easily the best thing off the album and shows Joe could do low-key and reflective as well as anyone else.

I thank you for pointing me to this album a good while back; I am glad to have made its acquaintance.
