Vince White's view

And a far cry from the mess of my first Clash gig in Santa Barbara. So if it turns up that would be the indicator of an original recording. Also it was the only show I played completely sober!!! I'd love to hear it. I really had my shit together on that one."

Straight To Hell - The Final Days Of The Clash
By Chris Knowles (Classic Rock) April 18, 2005

In 1983, The Clash sacked Mick Jones, hired three new members and tried to return to their punk rock roots. Cue two years of back-stabbing, bullying, busking and blistering rock n roll... PDF

THE CLASH'S FORGOTTEN YEARS, 1984-1986

In its official version, the story of The Clash ends with the firing of lead guitarist Mick Jones in 1983. Though founding members Joe Strummer and Paul Simonon subsequently led a five-piece version of the group until the first months of 1986, it is not a polite thing to mention at parties. The 384-page coffee-table book The Clash devotes less than a single page to the final two and a half years of the bandís career, and the 1985 album Cut The Crap has been left out of every Clash box set to date. In the words of Rolling Stone, ìIt doesnít count, and the whole thing has basically been erased from history. The Clash as we know them ended at the 1983 US Festival.î The new Clash met the same fate as the new Coke. PDF
