Mick Jones, Paul Simonon,Frank Ocean & Diplo, "Hero" Reviewed

Converse for All

Converse for All

Let us start with the basics.  Mick and Paul were part of a legendary band called The Clash.  Mick was tossed out, Paul so silent he road that wave til the end.  Frank Ocean, a bad pop guy and Diplo makes my skin crawl.

So there are the four people who Converse tossed together (for surely they would never found each other on their own).  The mission?  Three  Artists, One Song”.   I presume the Jones/Simonon bit counts as one.

The video of the tunes making is a horror. Diplo coming across perfectly as the arrogant nob he is.  Where he ever got that is beyond me, wait, its in the knob slide..a genius..OK.

Mick looks like an over anxious dog hunched forward and rocking to Diplos every word and Paul still stoic and stiff shoots a periodic smile.  Ocean seems to me he got the short end of the stick and he’s the one with most to offer in this tune.

About that tune.  It is most clearly the self loving creation of some men who feel they do no wrong. It has virtually no hook is so watered down that I am unsure what it’s supposed to taste like.  The transition from ganja haze to rock n droll is choppy and well its awful.

But it gets your attention and it serves its purpose but when you pair up two megalomaniacs such as Jones and Dip..you get what you get. Now Converse has done this before with better results  New Order’s Bernard Sumner, Hot Chip and Hot City for the song “Don’t Know What Love Was.”.

Take a pass on this one unless you’re really into one of these artists.  This wont live long. Listen here
