|perfom their first French gig tonight. They are on the bill of the "Le Palais Des Glaces", Paris for what is called "Nuites de Punk." They've brought along their favorite opening act, The Subway Sect, who have improved over their earlier performances, but still can't approach their mentor's skills. The Clash's loss of drummer and charter member of the band, Tory Crimes last month, has forced them to find a new drummer. After auditioning over 200 drummers (including Max Splodge can you believe), Nicky "Topper" Headon is filling in until a decision about a permanent replacement is reached. Tonight in Paris the Clash put on a furious show beginning with "London's Burning," proceeding through "1977," Toots' and the Maytals' song "Pressure Drop" and Junior Murvm's "Police & Thieves." They play almost everything from the new LP, ending with "Janie Jones," "Garageland" and a reprise of "White Riot."
