THE CLASH – ‘White Man In Hammersmith Palais’ Released 16 June 1978…

What we need now are bands with passion, rebellion and an ideal to work towards – like the Clash!
A great post from JL at Turn Up The Volume

Turn Up The Volume!

When timeless in sound and vision…

quotefield-kopie‘White Man In Hammersmith Palais‘ by THE CLASH

Amplified reggae vibes à la THE CLASH, the only band that mattered…

Midnight to six man
For the first time from Jamaica
Dillinger and Leroy Smart
Delroy Wilson, your cool operator

Ken Boothe for UK pop reggae
With backing bands sound systems
And if they’ve got anything to say
There’s many black ears here to listen

But it was Four Tops all night with encores from stage right
Charging from the bass knives to the treble
But onstage they ain’t got no roots rock rebel
Onstage they ain’t got no…roots rock rebel

Dress back jump back this is a bluebeat attack
‘Cos it won’t get you anywhere
Fooling with your guns
The British Army is waiting out there
An’ it weighs fifteen hundred tons

White youth, black youth
Better find another solution
Why not…

I'd like to hear from you...
