This event doesn't seem to include /Rude Boy/, the 1980 doco-drama 
featuring The Clash. Although I could never decide whether this odd, 
disjointed film is brilliant or pretentious rubbish, for anyone 
interested in the music and politics of late 70s England it does 
feature extensive and excellently filmed concert footage of The Clash 
at their angry best, grim housing estates, alienated youth, street 
fighting, Rock Against Racism, Anti-Nazi League, drunken rambles from 
Strummer on politics, etc. And the infamous pigeon shooting incident.
