His latest effort is perhaps his most ambitious.

Former Clash guitarist and Big Audio Dynamite founder Mick Jones is set to release his first new album in 12 years on October 23, under the band moniker Carbon/Silicon. Titled The Last Post, the album will be issued by Caroline Records. Along with his musician-partner, ex-Generation X guitarist Tony James, Jones has made music available for free from the website for the past several years. The Last Post marks the band's first proper album, however, and is already being hailed as a throwback to the DIY punk aesthetic that shaped Jones' and James' career beginnings. Leo "E-zee-Kill" Williams (formerly Jones' bandmate in B.A.D.) and Dominic Greensmith flesh out the group on bass and drums, respectively, with legendary soundman Bill Price manning the mixing board. "We want to be honorable men, and we want to be positive in music," Jones says. "That's what it's all about."

Wilco have some of the most faithful fans in the industry, despite their ever-changing approach (from alt country to skittering, psychedelic rock and back again), and during their current American tour, their fans are getting more love than ever. Besides taking song requests via their website, Wilco have been dragging out and polishing up old gems from their earliest albums, A.M., among others, much to the delight of an audience that's largely been all ears for Wilco since they strummed their first chord in '94.
