The Clash's 1978 sophomore album remastered and reissued! Special 35th Anniversary release of Give 'Em Enough Rope. This record is often over looked in The Clash's back catalog as it's sandwiched between their eponymous debut and the seminal London Calling. But the album is integral to the band's history. It was their first album to be released in the US and features fan favs "Tommy Gun," "Safe European Home" and "All The Young Punks (New Boots and Contracts)." In his 1979 review of Give 'Em Enough Rope for Rolling Stone, Griel Marcus remarked that "the Clash, from their first gigs, were second only to Rotten & Company as punk headmen. Where the Pistols pursued nihilism, the Clash affirmed rebellion; if Johnny Rotten really did sound like the Antichrist, Clash lead singer Joe Strummer railed in the voice of a streetfighter. It wasn't Armageddon he called up, simply the next battle."
