Newly Remastered by The Clash from the Original Tapes
The 1970s punk movement gave birth to some important bands, but none were more important than The Clash. They pushed and broke musical boundaries, while fusing musical experimentation with a socio-political conscience and it's hard to think of a band before or since that have exerted such universal influence.
Their passionate, political agenda continues to inspire new fans and musicians alike. Indeed, the issues The Clash tackled are as relevant today as they were in the late '70s/early '80s. Dubbed "the only band that matters" in their heyday, the same could be said almost 40 years later.
1978's Give 'Em Enough Rope was produced by Blue Oyster Cult's mentor Sandy Pearlman and was the band's first LP to feature drummer Topper Headon. Voted 'Album of the Year' by Sounds (UK), Rolling Stone (US) and Time Magazine (US) the record explores themes of Third World conflict, European terrorism and London inner-city desolation.
