Amazing early footage of The Clash during the “White Riot tour,” shot at Sussex University, Brighton, on May 25th 1977. Pity about the crazed speed-freak cutting between cameras and the herky-jerky camera work, but what can you do? Be happy someone thought to shoot it.

In part one they play “Capital Radio,” “Protex Blue,” “Cheat” and “Remote Control.”

In part two (here) they do “White Riot” and “Police & Thieves.”
