    ‘60th Anniversary Remastered’. On August 21st 2012 John Graham Mellor, better known to the world as Joe Strummer, would have been 60 years old. In celebration of his life and music, Hellcat is reissuing two of the classic releases he made with the Mescaleros that closed out his glorious career with music as vital and engaged as any he had made. Since their release at the turn of the millennium, these albums have grown in reputation, as Joe’s work with the Mescaleros now seems far ahead of its time with its artful blend of world and electronic influences. Along with new liner notes from Strummer collaborators like Jim Jarmusch, this remastered version of Global A Go-Go contains an extra live bonus track from the Acton concert, the CD is included with the double LP, all aiding in setting these albums in the wider context of Strummer’s life and career.
