There's a part of me that's kind of shocked that Heston likes the Clash at all.
The reason they are my favourite band of all time is undoubtedly because of Mick's melodic touch and arrangement skills, something I felt was lacking in Joe's post-Clash career.
Which I largely agree with. Where this gets confounded is that you look for way too much good in CtC.
It had more melody than most things that came after it by Joe. Who that was down to, I don't know.
Vince. It was all my buddy Vince.
Back off, or I'll blow the roof off—with sound!

Melodies and switchblades abound!

did joe ever actually record that? My only recollection is a performance by Bono & co.

But - yes - I'd completely forgotten about it's existence.

i've only listened to a live version with bono (that's rather horrible) and another more mellow one that sounds as if it's played through an old radio.
