14 December 2022

Legends THE CLASH released LONDON CALLING, their best-ever LP,
a double one, on 14 December 1979, 43 years ago today.

The album’s front cover shows a picture of bassist Paul Simonon smashing his
Fender Precision Bass
at the Palladium in New York City on 20 September 1979.

He did it out of frustration when he learned that the bouncers at the concert would
not allow the audience members to stand up out of their seats; The shot was taken
by legendary, renowned photographer Pennie Smith.
