Cheers Marky. It's criminal that 1981 was almost into May before they were allowed to play.
Maybe it's my memory fading, but why was that?
From BMC
Not touring to promote the album release seemed further commercial suicide, however this was not their original intention as they announced an exhaustive UK tour in December. By January though this was amended to selected dates and by February the tour was cancelled altogether. The chief reason being the refusal of CBS to provide tour support. Epic’s same response to a later proposed 60 date US jaunt meant that this tour too did not materialise.

From memory some UK dates were announced for early 81 then CBS pulled the plug for financial reasons. Early 81 was a weird time for the band. The absurd decision to bring back Bernie and two single releases with virtually no promotion whatsoever.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

Thanks very much Marky, and I have messaged Evair about this one, he will definitely want to hear it.
Cheers mate. Is Evair from Italy or just a fan of the '81 shows?
From Italy. He contributed quite a bit of information to BMC on some of the Italy shows.
Cool.

Listened to this earlier. Great work Marky and a very tight performance. Joe even nearly gets all the words right to London Calling.

Cheers mate. I don't mind Joe getting some lyrics wrong but getting the opening lines to LC wrong at some gigs bugs me.

Welcome Stefano and thanks for sharing some audio with you first post. It's always interesting to hear Clash pronouncements at press conferences.
Mick is great here, very passionate in his dimissal of CBS and full of confidence about the band at that point.

Yeah but don't thank the guy that spent 3 weeks working on the show. You selfish person. ;) I'm kidding of course and it was nice to see someone offering up something with their first post. A good interview.

My 'thanks Marky' goes without saying *... but yeah, I should still say it :mrgreen: Thanks Marky for all your skill and generosity!

* that phrase 'it goes without saying...' cracks me up, like 'needless to say' - cos people just go on to say it anyway.
