THE CLASH - Complete Control (1977)
There are some songs you will always remember the first time you heard them, 'Complete Control' by the Clash is one. I had to pick my wife up from Heathrow Airport Terminal 3 and I was a bit late. I was just going through the tunnel to the terminals when the song came on. I was totally stunned and must have gone into auto pilot (airport - get it?) and I missed my turning so I stopped in a lay by until it had finished. It took me a couple of minutes before I could compose myself to pick my wife up as my head was still in a spin. I had to tell someone, I tried to tell her about this great song but all I got was a bollocking for being late.
THE CLASH - Complete Control (Live)
My love affair with the Clash had well and trully started. I had the great pleasure of seeing Jo Strummer with his band the Mescaleros they were supporting The Who. Oh! boy that was a night to remember it took me days to come down. I still have the T-shirt from that night (I won't get fooled again)
