The Clash - "Live in Leicester 28th May 1977"

As I mentioned that my first 'gig' (flipping well hate that word), was The Clash, supported by Suicide in 1978, on the 'On Parole' tour. As much as I'd like to post the recording of the suicide performance from that night, it is obviously impossible to find, but I did manage to find the Clash gig (there's that word again) from the year before, at the De Montfort Hall (note the moronic mispelling on the tour poster above). A hall named after the once dictator of England, and Lord of Leicester in the 1300's; who famously banned Jews from Leicester for allllll eternity. He was chopped up in battle and made to suck on his own cock.
As much as I dislike the Clash for being full of pretend hard men, when they were really Art School dropouts and sons of Ambassadors; I do enjoy their early works, and this BBC in concert recording is a fine document of Joe Mellor and the chaps in fine form,and fine sound quality.(These twats signed to CBS!???)
Much prefer the real deal,Suicide, to these fellows though.

Set List:

  • I'm So Bored With the USA / Hate and War / 48 Hours / Deny / Police and Thieves
  • Cheat / Capital Radio / What's My Name / Protex Blue / Remote Control / Garageland / 1977
