The Clash – Hits Back
(2CD Best Of)

Released simultaneously, ‘The Clash Hits Back’ features 33 of the band’s iconic tracks, across a 2-CD set. The tracklisting is sequenced from the band’s legendary Brixton Fairdeal show in 1982.

Hits Back contains the best studio recordings of the full set, plus 8 additional iconic tracks, and will be available digitally and on CD. It comes with the original setlist, handwritten by Joe Strummer which he usually taped to the back of his Telecaster before each gig.

“Every show was different. Joe would spend a lot of time composing the running order, considering dynamics, emotional impact and the key the songs were in. This record is based on Joe’s setlist from The Casbah Club UK Tour, Brixton Fairdeal, 10th July 1982”. Mick, Paul & Topper.
