...th'scene is thus; its september 76'n th'clash're third on th'bill to crazy cavan rhythm rockers'n kursaal flyers at th'roundhouse in ol'london towne...th'kursaals have picked up a bit o' a student/pub rock followin' in th'past coupla years'n crazy cavan have a staunch ted followin'n th'clash aint got no cats checkin' them out so they just explode in rage'n anger at th'complacency o' things...joe berates th'audience more than once tellin' them to shake off th'post hippy lethargy that is still hangin' in th'air all these years later...great historical document luckily booted for all to hear'n catch th'vibes from th'nascent punk scene that would soon envelope th'hep planet'n beyond out into squaresville...this is also worthwhile for it displays th'very early 5 piece combo before th'art-school influences overtake them with spray paint'n slogans'n they slim down to a more manageable attack force...

never realised there was a bootleg available. Was at that gig - to see the kursaal flyers, and frmo memory, the next week I also saw the clash supporteding the sex pistols at the 100 club festival. Hweady days, especially when I realised that the guitarist with the clash was somwone who went to my school - little did I realise they were that "one band in a generation"
