    Default The Clash's Shea Stadium Gig Heading To CD

    from www.billboard.com:

    August 06, 2008 , 1:35 PM ET

    Jonathan Cohen, N.Y.

    Long bootlegged and sought after by collectors, the Clash's Oct. 13, 1982, performance at New York's Shea Stadium will finally see official release Oct. 7 via Legacy.

    The gig found the Clash opening for the Who on the latter band's "farewell" tour, and features a wealth of favorites, from "London Calling" and "Police on My Back" to "The Magnificent Seven" and "Clampdown."

    The band, which at the time was touring in support of its recent album "Combat Rock," also offered up the singles from that effort, "Should I Stay or Should I Go" and "Rock the Casbah." According to Legacy, late guitarist Joe Strummer found the Shea tapes while preparing to move into a new house.

    In other Clash news, a new biography culled from extensive band interviews, "The Clash by the Clash," will be released Nov. 4 via Grand Central Books.

    Here is the track list for "Live at Shea Stadium":

    Kosmo Vinyl Introduction
    "London Calling"
    "Police on My Back"
    "Guns Of Brixton"
    "Tommy Gun"
    "The Magnificent Seven"
    "Armagideon Time"
    "The Magnificent Seven" (return)
    "Rock the Casbah"
    "Train in Vain"
    "Career Opportunities"
    "Spanish Bombs"
    "Clampdown"
    "English Civil War"
    "Should I Stay or Should I Go"
    "I Fought the Law"

    Hey! Did everybody forget that David Johansen (I forget which incarnation, not the New York Dolls.) opened that show? I was there. I preferred the myriad Bond's gigs. Actually, The Who were the standouts.

    finally getting London Calling on CD - getting the 25th anniversary with the "Vanilla Tapes" and all that. Long overdue, and I still need the first two albums (and probably going to upgrade my Combat Rock CD at some point so that I have the full version of "Innoculated City"). Only bummer is the original Black Market Clash isn't still available on CD as I love the version of "Bankrobber/Robber Dub" featured that hasn't appeared on any other CD.

    can't believe there are now only 6 posts in this thread (and three of 'em are by me!) - no love for "The only band that matters" here at the links?

    What I want to know, has anyone seen "Rude Boy" and is it worth seeing (sounds as if the band disowned it)?

    Watch it here...

    http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...8647644267866#

    Rude Boy is about a conservative, slow-witted "rudie" (ie, hipster) named Ray, who joins the Clash as a roadie during the 1978 Sort it Out tour. During Ray's brief tenure, England marches slowly towards conservative Thatcherism while the Clash become more overtly political. For Ray, it's an education of sorts; for the Clash, it's the warm-up prior to the release of Give Em Enough Rope, the album which preceded their masterpiece, London Calling.

    I've always liked The Clash....and I've always thought they had the coolest name for a band I've ever heard of....

    Default The Clash - Westway to the world

    The Clash was one of those bands that I grew up on and was just part of the scenery when i was a young lad.

    Anyway. I spent last week housebound, due to back problems, so I decided to watch every video on youtube (there are a lot) and came across this gem of a documentary about the Clash. Funny how I found out that i knew absolutely nothing about them.

    If you're even a minor appreciator of the band, this is really worth watching. Lots of music, live clips, and guided along by interviews with the old band members rather than a voiceover. Seems to be quite an open and honest appraisal by all concerned.

    A man could lose himself in a country like this.

    I saw The Clash 3 times, all during their Combat Rock tour. First time was at the Hollywood Palladium which was absolutely epic. Opened with London Calling and the place went nuts. Early in their set, I was about 20 feet back from the stage and it was so tightly packed in the pit that the person behind me stepped on the heels of my shoes and they got stripped off my feet. I had to immediately get out of the pit and move way back where my now bare feet wouldn't get stomped. A few minutes later, I see someone wing one at the stage narrowly missing Joe Strummer.

    Second time was when The Clash supported The Who on their stadium tour. It was the LA Coliseum and frankly, it was pretty boring. Third time was The US Festival and it was obvious the band was burned out and on it's last legs. I believe that was their last show together as the classic Strummer/Jones/Simonon lineup.

    I borrowed "Westway To The World" from NetFlix a year or so ago -pretty good documentary, just kind of makes you sad they couldn't hold it together for longer, though, or at least find the time to get back together while Joe was still with us.

    My roommate from college was pulled onstage to sing "White Riot" during one of their tours.

    Default The Clash to release new box set of remastered albums and rarities

    from guardian.co.uk:

    Sound System set to be accompanied by best-of album, sequenced to copy a 1982 Brixton show


    Michael Hann

    guardian.co.uk, Tuesday 21 May 2013 03.01 EDT


    The Clash are to release two new compilations in September – including a box set designed by bassist Paul Simonon to replicate an 80s boombox. Sound System will contain remasters of the band's first five albums, from The Clash to Combat Rock, plus three CDs of singles, rarities and demos, and a DVD containing previously unseen footage, plus reprints and a new edition of the band's Armagideon Time fanzine.

    "The concept of the whole thing is: best box set ever," Clash guitarist Mick Jones – who oversaw the remastering – told the Guardian. "Remastering's a really amazing thing. That was the musical point of it all, because there's so much there that you wouldn't have heard before. It was like discovering stuff, because the advances in mastering are so immense since the last time [the Clash catalogue] was remastered in the 90s."

    All the music has been remastered from the original tapes, Jones said. "We had to bake the tapes beforehand – the oxide on them is where the music is, so if you don't put them in the oven and bake them, that all falls off, because they're so old."

    Bassist Simonon highlighted a guitar line on Safe European Home, from the band's second album Give 'Em Enough Rope, saying he'd never even heard it before. "It's probably some session musician, while I was asleep," Jones joked.

    Sound System is accompanied by The Clash Hits Back, a 33-track, two-CD best-of sequenced to copy the set played by the band at the Brixton Fair Deal – now the Academy – on 19 July 1982, rounded out with big numbers that failed to make the set that night.

    The Fair Deal was a special venue for the Clash, Simonon told the Guardian, because of the memories the venue held as the cinema he and Jones went to as children. "It's actually where I saw my first ever pop show," Simonon said. "We all turned up as 10-year-olds, and they said: 'Right, boys and girls, we've got a special surprise for you - we're not going to show you a film!' So everyone was: 'Booooo.' 'No. we've got a special surprise – we have Sandie Shaw!' And Sandie Shaw came on, and she was going on about not having any shoes. So we had an hour set from her, and that was my first pop concert."



    Both sets will be released on 9 September. The full interview with Mick Jones and Paul Simonon will be published in the Guardian on 24 May.

    The full tracklisting for The Clash Hits Back is:

    Disc 1
    1. London Calling
    2. Safe European Home
    3. Know Your Rights
    4. (White Man) In Hammersmith Palais
    5. Janie Jones
    6. The Guns of Brixton
    7. Train in Vain
    8. Bankrobber
    9. Wrong 'Em Boyo
    10. The Magnificent Seven
    11. Police on my Back
    12. Rock the Casbah
    13. Career Opportunities
    14. Police & Thieves
    15. Somebody Got Murdered
    16. Brand New Cadillac
    17. Working for the Clampdown

    Disc 2
    1. Ghetto Defendant
    2. Armagideon Time
    3. Stay Free
    4. I Fought the Law
    5. Straight To Hell
    6. Should I Stay or Should I Go?
    7. Garageland
    8. White Riot
    9. Complete Control
    10. Clash City Rockers
    11. Tommy Gun
    12. English Civil War
    13. The Call Up
    14. Hitsville UK
    15. This Is Radio Clash


    Would've been nicer if this had come out before I'd just replaced all the albums and bought the singles, so I'm good. Still disappointed that neither set includes "Bankrobber/Robber Dub" mix that was on the original Black Market Clash

    I had Combat Rock or a 7" Rock The Casbah, I can't remember, back in the 80's.

    I always enjoyed how the video for Rock The Casbah was filmed in Austin, showing sites that I had been to, when I was in college there in the 70's.

    I never got to see them live.

    I downloaded the MP3 of the live From Here To Eternity album.

    Listening to the incredible guitar work, along with the bass and drums, and vocals, of course, I have to say that The Clash's contribution to music is eternal.

    For me, The Clash are more relevant and substantive than The Sex Pistols (which are pure fun), and Nirvana.
