The Clash: Live in Tokyo 1982
” The Clash were an English punk rock band that formed in 1976 as part of the original wave of British punk. Along with punk, their music incorporated elements of reggae, ska,dub,funk rap, and rockabilly. For most of their recording career, the Clash consisted of Joe Strummer ( lead guitar ,vocals), Mick Jones (lead guitar, vocals) Paul Simonon( bass guitar, vocals) and Nicky “Topper Headon ( drums , percussion). Headon left the group in 1982, and internal friction led to Jone’s departure the following year in 1986. ” from Wikipedia
I was very lucky to see the Clash in their hayday up very close at the Orpheum in Boston in 1882 when their two hits “Rock the Casbah” and “Should I Stay or Should I Go” were receiving alot of radio play. I had a vintage T-shirt from that concert with an incredible print of what a Casbah scene would look like (Indiana Jones crowd) but I think was stolen from the victorian age print in mono pink, I wore it out for ten years at least and finally let it go, into the bin of no more.
I’d like to add a short bit by Big Radio Dynamite led by Mick Jones formerly of the Clash Live at the London Town and Country Club 1990 just to show the immense talent an offshoot project had from the orignal band.
