    Cool, should bring this out as a C.D. with a booklet of all those early pics of the Clash from
    1976. It should have been included in the Clash
    Box set ‘ SOUND SYSTEM ‘, as a bookend along with Cut the Crap.
    Then we would have had’ THE REAL STORY OF
    THE CLASH’, and not had certain people airbrushed from THE CLASH HISTORY!

  2. absolutely Tony. M8 its criminal the way the Clash airbrushed Keith from their history.

    thanks Louderthan War for sharing these and of course Mr Levene.

  3. My friend Jon was at the Sheffield Sex Pistols gig when a new band called The Clash supported. I’m only a little bit jealous…

  4. Compare the trivial Big Audio Dynamite to the mighty PIL…

  5. this stuff is banging man…… love it..xx
