about

Willie Williams' international reputation was built on the back of one song alone, his 1979 Jamaican hit "Armagideon Time," which came to international attention when the the Clash covered the song to great effect on the flip of their 12" "London Calling" single that same year. In fact, Williams' "Armagideon Time" was one of a stream of follow-ups to Papa Michigan & Smiley's smash "Nice up the Dance," which revisited the popular Studio One rhythm first brought to life back in 1967 on the Soul Vendors' instrumental "Real Rock."
