THE CLASH - OUT OF CONTROL, 1984
Original promotional flyer, 6"x8".
After the break up with Mick Jones in September 1983, Strummer and Simonon regrouped with new band members on an extended self-financed tour. That the experiment ended a year later with the Bernie Rhodes-engineered debacle of the Cut The Crap album tends to obscure how revitalised Strummer was in this period. Greil Marcus: "I'd never seen Strummer more exhilarated, or more convincing".
