The Clash – London Calling Armagideon Time (VERY RARE)
Hand signed by: Joe Strummer – Topper Headon – Mick Jones – Paul Simonon
“London Calling” is a song by the British punk rock band The Clash. It was released as a single from the band’s 1979 double album London Calling. This apocalyptic, politically charged rant features the band’s famous combination of reggae basslines and punk electric guitar and vocals. Continuing the theme of the retro Elvis Presley-inspired London Calling LP cover, the single sleeve (front and back) is based on old Columbia 78 rpm sleeve. The cover artwork was designed by Ray Lowry and is identical to the Columbia sleeve with the exception of changing the blank 78 covers that the young teenage cover models are listening to classic Rock and Punk LP sleeves. From left to right they are, The Beatles’ debut Please Please Me, Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols, The Rolling Stones debut, The Clash debut, Bob Dylan’s Highway 61 Revisited and finally the Elvis Presley debut LP.
