The Clash - D.O.A. (Demos, Alternates and Outtakes)



If Rolling Stone magazine ever got one thing right, it was calling The Clash "The Only Band That Matters" way back in the day. I cannot truly describe the wonderful effect their music has had on the shaping of my mind in my youth. A punk rock band that wasn't afraid to , eloquently I may add, say what they meant. Sure, there was a lot of screamers back then with loads of rage and little vocabulary who had a message as well. But no one could match these boys for energy and vision. They made reggae, ska, skiffle, punk and so many other styles sound so sweet. So, of course, DaddyRich has loaded up on their rarities and gems - and will be posting a few here for other like-minded individuals. Although I already had this one for a while, all praise is due to AlienOnAcid and the mighty SFRP for hooking the world up to the kind stuff. Keep your eyes open here, kids - more to come!

Thanks for this! Around 1980, The Clash were truly the only band that mattered in my book. I still love them...RIP Joe.

thank you very much for this - just listened to disc 1 - brought back many good memories - first time i saw the clash was between the first and second albums - the slits were the support act (ridiculously good and anarchic) (btw - any slits boots?) - the sound is raw but much better than i was expecting. no alt take of my fave clash song complete control (well, you can't have everything) ... again, many thanks ...
