The Clash - 1979-09-21, at the New York City Palladium performing the songs I'm So Bored With the U.S.A., I Fought the Law, Jail Guitar Doors, and English Civil War. It is only short clips of the songs but sweet nonetheless. This concert was the night after* Paul Simonon smashed his favorite bass guitar thus creating one of the greatest moments in rock and roll history ever captured, graced on the album cover of London Calling, and taken by photographer Pennie Smith. More info about this special gig, including the full setlist, can be found here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/7...
The original source of this video was a silent Super 8 film camera. I layered the audio over it and hastily synced it together.
Better transitioning and syncing coming soon.
*"This concert was the night after..." used to read as "the night Paul Simonon smashed his bass" but thanks to recent speculations from Dave Marin, and other fans who went to the show on the 20th, we now know that the bass smash happened on the previous Palladium gig. Dave's video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QARxQ...
