Working for the Clampdown

Working for the Clampdown

Forty years ago 14.12.79. The Clash's third album London Calling is released. The double-album catapulted The Clash from punk originals to the frontline of a generation's cultural resistance against all that Thatcher, elected in May of the same year, represented. Blimey couldn't we do with Joe, Mick, Paul and Topper right now.

'Working for the Clampdown' was a classic Clash anthem for that resistance.  They sing of  a rampaiging rich, repression of bsic rights, ugly racism. It's almost as if nothing's changedc in the intervening foyr decades nothing much has changed. Tho' in those days the 'gig economy' consisted of a Friday night band slot down the local pub after work, whereas today for many its a precarious way to try to earn a 9-5 living.
