    ‘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.
