Black 2 Comm 19th November 2017

Featuring Just-Ice, Skeletal Family, Sleaford Mods and many others. Cheq out this clip of The Clash performing "Train In Vain" at the Lewisham Odeon on the 18th of February 1980. The footage was shot during their 16 Tons tour in which The Clash were joined on stage by Blockheads organ player Mickey Gallagher, who also performed on the "London Calling" LP. The song was a late addition to the album, so late in fact that it doesn't appear on the artwork as the covers had already gone into production. The Mick Jones penned number was supposedly written about his recently ended relationship with Slits guitarist Viv Albertine. He used to get the train 'round to her flat and she would refuse to let him in!
