The Last Gig in Town

The last time I saw The Clash was Detroit in ’68. No, Joni fans, it was actually at the Brixton Academy in ’82, so it’s great to have one of my favourite gigs commemorized (neologism there) in a box set. This 2-CD issue features the set list from the night plus a few other choice cuts.  A favourite Clash haunt, they tore the place up, and Simenon  apparently saw his first gig at the Brixton venue — Sandie Shaw (Morrissey eat your heart out)!
