Clash man Mick Jones returns with Carbon/Silicon
Punk pioneers Mick Jones of The Clash and Tony James of Generation X are to reunite under the name Carbon/Silicon.
The duo will release their debut EP for digital download on May 21, followed by a 7” vinyl and CD a week later (May 28). The EP features four tracks – ‘The News’, ‘Why Do Men Fight?’, ‘I Loved You’ and ‘Ignore Alien Orders’.
Jones and James share a long history together, first collaborating as members of London SS in 1975 before going on to form separate punk bands.
The debut Carbon/Silicon album will be released in September.
The band’s first 2007 show will be at the Isle Of Wight Festival on June 9.
