Topper Headon - Waking Up


Found this great rarity while looking for Joe Strummer/Clash stuff:

"Waking Up is the only solo album by Topper Headon, best known as the drummer of The Clash. The album, released in 1986, was unnoticed and now is mostly forgotten."

More from Wikepedia:
"Headon is commonly recognized as one of the best punk rock drummers of the late 1970s and early '80s. He was kicked out of The Clash due to his growing heroin addiction. Topper was unable to give up drugs and left the band on May 10, 1982, at the beginning of the Combat Rock tour. Original drummer Terry Chimes played drums for the tour."

I'm listening now. I had this on tape for a long time. My friend "The Zenturian" (from Mookie blog) had it on vinyl when it came out.
