No Music: The Clash and Undertones in Toronto 1979

Evidence is evidence.

The Clash weren’t perfect, or even close, but as a band they hit all the marks.

This clip documents a somewhat awkward encounter between Joe Stummer and a Canadian interviewer. And brings the Undertones in for better comment.

Talking about the culture and business of rock, this is still terrible bullshit. And the Clash are implicated seriously.

But, as a video moment? Draw your own conclusions.

One thought on “No Music: The Clash and Undertones in Toronto 1979

  1. This was too boring to watch the whole thing so I don’t think I ever made it to the key part.

    Did learn in the first minute though that The Undertones were super political. Really?
