Fusing rock'n'roll with reggae and nascent hip-hop influences, Big Audio Dynamite released four albums -- 'This is Big Audio Dynamite,' 'No. 10 Upping Street,' 'Tighten Up Vol. 88' and 'Megatop Phoenix' between 1985 and 1990. Their second album saw Jones reunited with former Clash partner Joe Strummer who co-wrote five of the album's songs as well sharing production duties.
As previously reported by Spinner, the reunion was mooted last year but Jones' guitar duties with erstwhile Clash bassist Paul Simonon for Gorillaz prevented the Big Audio Dynamite reunion occurring any earlier.
Big Audio Dynamite's UK tour dates are:
Liverpool O2 Academy, England (Mar. 29)
