Ages ago Google released a five-part YouTube documentary about The Clash to promote remastered releases of five of their albums on the Google Play Store. Well worth a gander if you havn’t already.
Is ‘London Calling’ the best album ever released in the history of the universe ? …. like ever ? quite possibly ?
An obvious name for a classic Clash tribute band at the very very least.
Come March 18th we will be at The Studio in Widnes watching ‘London Calling’ & celebrating the 40th Anniversary of The Clash’s first single ‘White Riot’ which was released back on the day : March 18th 1977 ( See the flyer below ).
The song was written after Joe Strummer and bassist Paul Simonon were involved in the riots at the Notting Hill Carnival of 1976.
Anyway … If you have about an hour and havn’t seen it ? or have the evening free on March 18th : we are going ! …….. Grab a ticket & We’l see you there ! – See The Flyer Below and click this link x LINK AND SEARCH FOR LONDON CALLING
