The Clash and David Bowie drinking backstage at Shea Stadium

This March, PBS stations nationwide will premiere The Clash Live: Revolution Rock, a new documentary film chronicling live performances from the iconic punk pioneers at the peak of their powers. A preview of the April 15 DVD release, this is a a real tribute to the band's electric LIVE PERFORMANCES, and something you won't want to miss.

The Clash Live: Revolution Rock DVD follows the live transformation of the band, incorporating footage from all phases of The Clash's meteoric career, beginning with live-in-the-studio clips from 1979, through triumphant concerts from clubland (London's The Music Machine, 1978) and theatres (The Lyceum, 1978, 1980), climaxing with a transcendent blow-out performance at New York's Shea Stadium in 1982. The DVD also includes rare footage of the band's performance on The Tom Snyder Show and on ABC's Fridays.

Can't wait to see this. The Clash are the only band that matters.

Posted by Anonymous | February 19, 2008 9:14 AM

Agreed. Today's bands should take a few pointers.

I'm looking forward to seeing this on PBS. But you just know that this will be constantly interrupted as they ask us for money...

crass not clash

Posted by rb | February 19, 2008 9:29 AM

Have you Realised that Rock Stars
Always seem to lie so much?
John Lydon once said he cared
But he never really gave a fuck
Said he'd use the money he made
So that people would have somewhere to go
But now he lives in the USA
and Snorts Coke after the Show.

Why is it that Rock Stars
Always seem to lie so much?
Joe Strummer once said he cared,
but he never really gave a fuck
Said he'd use the money he made
To set up a radio station to make the
Airwaves full of something more than Shit
Have you noticed we're still Waiting?

You must realize that Rock Stars
Always seem to lie so much
Some will always tell you that they care,
But they don't really give a fuck,
Still you suckers don't ever learn
That rock stars deal in money not truth
It's good Buisiness to exploit you
Just look at Lydon or Strummer for Proof.

They sold London Calling to Jaguar before Joe Strummer's body was cold. Fucking bastards.

"crass not clash"

If you are over 20, didn't ever live in the UK, and still listen to Crass for lyrical content.....then your job probably sucks and you're still as jaded as you were as a teenager. The Falklands war is over! Thatcher is out! Grow up!

And if your job sucks and you are jaded, you are a loser whose opinion does not matter? Crass wrote about a lot more than the Falklands and Thatcher you obnoxious twit. Plenty of their words and art are as relevant today as Strummer's pop songs. Last time I checked we had a border line fascist administration in power who were committing hegemonic wholesale slaughter....

I met Strummer in 2000? at the NYC Virgin Megastore. Coolest dude ever. I saw the man at least 6 times (last time being in Brooklyn at the St. Ann's warehouse). Some of the best shows ever. The Clash are the reason I got into music in the first place.

"Last time I checked we had a border line fascist administration in power who were committing hegemonic wholesale slaughter"

What a sickening and elitist observational comment! Sure, no government provides a utopian environment to live amongst but you should be very thankful to be a citizen of this country. I too think the current adminstration is an abomination to humanity but to call them "borderline facist" is completely making light of actual totalitarian governments that have and still do exist. Try living in North Korea or Afghanistan....the very fact that you can express your opinion online would be completely empowering to anyone who lives in the aforementioned brutalized nations.

Please think before you speak. Especially when defending the half-wit ideologies of a "band".

the above comment refers to Crass, not the Clash.

i was there, and from where i sat, the clash sucked. overwhelmed by the venue. the who (for whom they opened) sucked too, but they had an excuse (no moon).

Calling the current administration an abomination to humanity is completely making light of actual abominations to humanity, like the holocaust and the Al Quedas and Paris Hilton.

Spoken like a true graduate of hipster world politics 101. Compare the govt's of 1970's Cambodia and where you live today. Still think you have it so bad?!?!! It's really easy to make critical remarks when you're not in the line of fire.

Posted by Anonymous | February 19, 2008 11:35 AM

If I were in the line of fire, I might just say that the line had been crossed and we were experiencing full blown fascism. As now only some citizens are having their phones tapped, only a million or so innocent civilians have been killed by this empirialistic war for oil, only a few thousand people are being detained and tortured for years without trials, I only get my bags rifled through by storm troopers with automatic weapons sometimes, and the administration chooses to hide or destroy damning evidence of its own wrong-doings only occasionally, I'll have to say it's only borderline fascism. Nowheres near as bad as Pol Pot or Pinochet.

The Clash were a great band, but not necessarily a great live band, based on the 5 times I got to see them, between '79 - '82. Perhaps my expectations were always too high, but despite some highlights, I generally came away wanting more. Sometimes they were defeated by the acoustics (like at the Paladium Theater on 14th St.) or burnt-out (in the middle of their sold-out 2-week run at Bonds in Times Square) or overwhelmed by the scale (before a huge crowd at the pier near the Intrepid). My most spine-tingling moment of live Clash was watching their performance of Police and Thieves in the Rude Boy movie. Maybe that clip will make the DVD.

Posted by drewo | February 19, 2008 12:28 PM

I didn't see WNET (channel 13 in NYC) in the list and I don't get cable, so I can't watch it on WLIW (channel 21). :(

Posted by i want my daddy's records | February 19, 2008 1:11 PM

Janet Reno only killed 76 people in Waco, though I do agree that the infiltration/entrapment tactics used during the Ruby Ridge shit were also borderline fascist. Bush and co. are responsible for over a million. OVER A MILLION! Bush wins! BUSH WINS!

ONLY 76?

Should it have been more? In your opinion, how many would it take to call Janet Reno what she really is; a mass murderer?
Was Waco NOT facist? Or was it "borderline", too?

Bush isn't a good guy by any means, but he hasn't massacred his own people.
