Manu Chao
Clandestino / Bloody Border

The reason that Manu Chao is now the poster-boy for ‘world music’ (we’ll not delve into the politics of that particular term here) is largely due to the success of his debut LP Clandestino. This record has sold a bajillion copies since its release in 1998 and continues to be beloved for its poppy mix of Latin guitar styles, reggae, multilingual lyrics and vaguely revolutionary invective. Personally this Norman Records™ writer is most grateful for this record because it paved the way for Robbie Williams’s truly mind-boggling cover of ‘Bongo Bong’ about a decade later. This new edition of Clandestino has been remastered and contains a trio of new songs - one of which is an updated version of the title-track.
