Guns from Brixton is the legendary cable broadcast from Capitol Theatre, Passaic NJ - 8th March 1980 and features the Clash hard at work promoting the album London Calling.
This recording features the classic line-up of The Clash which performed together for five years from 1977 to 1982. During those halcyon years of The Clash the band featured lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist Joe Strummer, lead guitarist and vocalist Mick Jones, bassist Paul Simonon and drummer Nicky ‘Topper’ Headon.
London Calling was the album that really broke the Clash in the USA. From this point onward the band were huge crowd pullers across the states.
