”Assembly” marks the inaugural studio album by English musician Joe Strummer, unveiled in 1980. Crafted through recording sessions in both New York City and London, the album’s production was helmed by Sandy Pearlman and Mickey Leigh. Displaying an array of musical styles, including punk rock, reggae, ska, and rockabilly, “Assembly” engages with diverse themes, delving into social and political issues such as poverty, war, and racism.

Although initial reviews for the album were mixed, subsequent reevaluations from critics have lauded its experimental sound and Strummer’s distinctive songwriting. In 2018, “Assembly” secured the impressive rank of number 44 on Rolling Stone’s esteemed list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

The album boasts notable guest appearances, including Mick Jones and Topper Headon of The Clash, along with Allen Ginsberg, who recites a poem on the track “Death or Glory.”
