The CLASH – ” Live at the Nakano Sun Plaza ” February 1st 1982 – FM Broadcast Record Store Day 2022

Posted: April 26, 2022 in MUSIC

In late January and early February of 1982 the Clash played eight shows in Japan. The band was embarking on a month-long tour of the Far East that, as fate would have it, would be the last tour with their classic line-up. When it was over, drummer Topper Headon was kicked out , and the band would never be the same.

In this LP we go back in time to listen to The Clash in the twilight of their period of highest splendour.

The Clash had refused to play in Japan prior to this tour because of the Japanese custom forbidding audience members to stand up. They agreed to play after a compromise was struck: the fans could stand, but only at their seats
