Rock Art & The X Ray Style opened Joe Strummer's great final act - three excellent albums recorded along with the Mescaleros between 1999 and his death in 2002 . For ten years before recording his first project with the Mescalaros, Strummer had kept a very low profile after experiencing incredible fame as the front man and rhythm guitarist of the Clash. By the time Joe and the Mescaleros completed their second record, Global A Go - Go in 2001, they were a well-honed group with their own distinctive sound and stance. Their final album, Streetcore, was being recorded at the time of Strummer's unexpected death in December of 2002, during which songs like “Coma Girl” and “Get Down Moses” were recorded. These fan - adored albums are considered to be his most admired work since the Clash years and capture the iconic front-man amidst an undeniable creative resurgence.
