There is a live recording from the Winterhuder Fauhrhaus in Hamburg. However only one track has surfaced so far.
A fan has been in touch and says he may be able to get a copy from a Sex Pistols collector who owns it. In the meantime he has one track which we have recived.
The Show in Hamburg 6th Oct.1977 was at the Winterhuder Fährhaus.The Show starts with Londons Burning and ends with Janie Jones plus an encore of Garageland if I remember correctly.It was one of the first UK Punk gigs in Hamburg. I've got some photos from this Show. Peter, Hamburg

Clash Landing Search and Destroy Fanzine Clash Interviewed by
Annette Weatherman and Vermilion Sands
A lengthy interview with Joe, Mick & Paul in 1977. It was published in Search & Destroy mag out of San Francisco. It was the first word of the Clash in print in the U.S. Birmingham Rag Marktt & Sweden gigs referenced.
The band show up to the aborted punk festival announced 3 weeks earlier. The council managed within a couple of days to shut it down. The Clash talked to local fans but the police turned up to make arrests for unlawful gathering and obstruction.
Following the afternoons debacle, the band managed to borrow heavy metal band Warhead's gear and play a 45 minute set in front of 500 punks. Johnny Green (A Riot of Our Own) mentions the Clash in 78 being outside a Birmingham venue explaining to ticket holders why they were unable to play.
