The Clash-Capital Radio
7" record with an anti Capital Radio stance. In London Capital Radio is a local Radio station that was once fresh but has specialised in blandness for a number of years. At one time if you didn't get your record on Capital your song was doomed. The Clash released this EP in 1977  as a free gift with a token from the New Musical Express and a sticker from their debut album. The rest of the disc comprised of a Strummer/Jones interview. The song got zero airplay. It has been re-recorded and re-released on a number of compilations but there's something about the circumstances of the original that nicely sum up the attitude of those heady days of '77.
