Mose Allison was a huge influence on everyone from The Who, to Bonnie Raitt, The Pixies and The Clash

His career spanned seven decades and his influence was myriad, from fellow jazz artists to rock titans, his work was recorded by so many greats. His unique voice was instantly recognizable and he had an inimatable style. We play Mose’s 1965 song “Look Here” and turn to The Clash’s triple (!) album ‘Sandinista!’ for a pretty straight cover.
