This song is by Joe Strummer and appears on the album Rock Art and the X-Ray Style (1999). Late news breakin', this just inTonight there was a power cut in the city of madnessAnd all conversations died in the burst of a solar flareIn the darkness an angel won the beauty pagentStroboscopic snowflakes fell from the stratosphereAnd all the neon blew down funky BroadwayAnd shorted out the eastern shoreOnly saxophones and beach trombonesWe're left to shout out,"We all need a little more.

The album begins with "Tony Adams," a track which sounds not unlike Strummer's previous work with The Clash. Saxophone riffs are juxtaposed with reggae inspired guitar, as Strummer recites lyrics detailing a catastrophe hitting New York City. The rest of the record takes a winding journey, with songs that capture Strummer's genre mixing.
