The Clash - Rettel Festival 1980 repost


ive been meaning to post some clash for a while but for some reason ive not got around to doing it until now.this is what www.blackmarketclash.com had to say about this show."Sourced from an FM radio broadcast this has a great sound, the best from this European/UK final leg of the 16 Tons Tour. It’s the best sounding source for hearing the particular live sound The Clash were producing at this stage in their history; very tight and dominated by Mick’s effects heavy lead guitar, played in a great mixture of short solo bursts and punk power chords."its only 9 songs but bmc explains why.anyway more new clash live stuff to come soon and some re-posts as well.so over to you to listen to this loud,enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks!

The Clash - Harlesden Calling 1977 Repost


a great live show from the clash recorded at the colliseum in harlesden, london in march of '77.a chaotic gig with several false starts/power failures etc and with joe shouting ' hey mick whats going on?who pulled the plug out?"or words to that effect.anyway according to the good folks at www.blackmarketclash.com a slightly longer version of this exists but with the possibility that several of these extra tracks maybe came from another show.its definitely a very listenable show and a lot better sound than other shows i have from this era of the band.so i hope you listen,enjoy and then leave a comment on it.thanks!

A Request for Help!

Evening all. I have a request for help from anyone living in Ireland who has access to BBC One N.I. Why you ask? Well on Monday night the 21st January the station is showing an hour long documentary of the undertones entitled "Teenage Kicks:The Story of The Undertones". Its on at 22.35 and it sounds like its great. Here is what the BBC website says about it BBC_Undertones. So if anyone could possibly record it and possibly send me a link to it or i can send them blank dvds or something in exchange or a dvd of a band from my collection that would be brilliant. I really want to see this documentary so any help will be greatly appreciated.Thanks very much!

The Clash - Five Alive


This repost today comes courtesy of camden dave.its a recording of the clash II in stockholm from 1984.as always with the clash II im a bit apprehensive before i listen to any recordings by them but they always grow on me and i like them more with each subsequent listen.decent sound quality here that i hope youll enjoy.i think theres another version of this boot around called 'stockholm calling' that was apparently recorded by a swedish radio station so until that turns up please enjoy this and then leave a comment.thanks!
