Sounds: The Clash in Belfast
Caroline Coon, 29 October 1977
AT FIRST the band were reluctant to have their photo taken anywhere near the soldiers. "They'll think we're here to entertain the troops," said Strummer. They all felt that they didn't know enough about the political situation. They learned fast. ...full text
