This is the centerpiece of a video for Joe Strummer’s version of Bob Marley’s “Redemption Song” from Joe’s new Mescaleros album “Streetcore”. The video, directed by Josh Cheuse shows artists Dr. Revolt and Zephyr creating this mural on the wall of the Niagara Bar in the East Village, while many of Joe’s well known friends and local neighbors watch.
Joe Strummer and his band the “Mescaleros” came to New York to play five shows at the new venue “St. Ann’s Warehouse” under the Brooklyn Bridge. What a week it was! The shows were great and we stayed up partying till dawn each night. Joe played new material from the Mescaleros two albums, as well as some old favorites from the Clash days.
