Joe Strummer conducts the Riot - 'Erica Echenberg' (Dont Care collection)
THE CLASH push the "new wave movement" to a new level tonight. They have arrived at the point that the Sex Pistols aspired to but at the moment have failed. They play a prestigious capacity gig at the Rainbow Theatre in London with full label support, records in the charts and they are the headline act of their own package tour.
