Glasgow Barrowlands was the venue, equally as famous as the Apollo.

Actually, Black Market Clash lists this not as the first show, but the first U.K. show. Apparently, the five-man, Mickless Clash performed nine dates in the U.S. first. Thanks for this though, looks great!

The show date, by the way, is Feb. 10, '84.

This site has a link to the Back to Basics bootleg, which was mislabeled "Hammersmith Station" but Black Market Clash verifies as Gateshead Station (a club, not a train station), Newcastle, May 11 '85:

Great fuckin' blog! Such a great show here! The version I have looses the stereo on the 2nd and 3rd tracks, I fixed them with Pro-Tools, does that happen on anyone else's version?
