The Clash - On Broadway (short film)repost

after another trawl through the muebles archives last night i found this.its a brilliant record of a brilliant band.here is what wikipedia have to say about it.
"Aborted film project begun by Don Letts and The Clash. The intent of the film was to document the events and performances centering around the band's historic seventeen consecutive shows at Bond's International, a club located in Time's Square, NYC, extending from May 28-June 13, 1981. Footage included Topper Headon strolling around NYC at night & being interviewed while riding in a taxi, the group sitting on a rooftop watching a group of young black kids rap and breakdance, the graffitti artist Futura plying his trade, the backstage scene, and stellar perfomances from the Bond's shows.
Although the film itself never materialized, the footage that was shot provided the basis for the "This is Radio Clash" video "
so now you know!its time then to watch,enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks!
p.s remember to ask for reposts.dont be shy,if i still have the file or cd then i will repost it for you.or if you have any special requests please get in touch,thanks!
