This is funny. That's one of my favorites too. Has been since I had the combat rock cassette in the 8th grade. I am and have always been a huge Clash fan. Even now I marvel at how much music they put out in such a short time. For a band that started out as punk and ended with music that not defined or confined to any genre. The close second for favorite would be brand new Cadillac. Loud. It's the song I imagine was playing when the iconic guitar smash picture was taken.

Joe did a lot of great stuff after clash, my favorite being the mescaleros.
I'll try to post some songs, but check out "Johnny appleseed", "get down Moses", and "cool n out"
Some of my favorites.

I saw the Joe and the Mescaleros version of straight to hell on a youtube live video. It was a shadow of its former glory.

He had zero further interest in trying to recreate clash. Exactly the opposite, he was writing music scores and trying new sounds.
Check out bhindi bhagg or johnny appleseed for example.

I think as an artist he felt compelled to prove his distance from the clash. I think mick jones and Big Audio Dynamite did too. I like some of Joe's later stuff but I don't love it. I like some of big audio dynamite's stuff but I don't love it either. There was something magic that happened with those two in the creative push and pull of a sincere authentic punk band that leaned their instruments as they went along. The clash was indeed greater than the sum of its parts.

Joe had the uncanny ability to be able to play virtually any kind of musical genre :

I heard an interview where Mick Jones was describing hearing lost in the supermarket for the first time and he was like "that son of a bitch was writing about me!" He was right and right to be mad. But that is a great song. "I wasn't born, so much as I fell out, nobody seemed to notice me, we had a hedge back home in the suburbs, over which I never could see...." No way Joe Strummer turns that brilliant eye inward. He did that that prove his writing skills and dig at Mick Jones for the friction between them. It was never going to work forever but when it worked, it was magic.
