The Clash on Fridays

Do you remember Fridays? For those of you around my age, you probably do: ABC's attempt to compete with Saturday Night Live.

My favorite parts of that show were almost always the great live performances, which were almost always better than those on SNL. From Devo to the Plasmatics, and yes, the only band that matters, The Clash. The Clash Performance especially hit home with me. It was my chance to actually see them play live, even if it was only on TV (rather than in the flesh). Before that, all I had were magazine articles and the albums themselves.

Now the good news. Bedazzled has a video available of that performance.

NP: "Reason is Treason" - Kasabian
