The Clash in Swansea Poster

This is the poster that was pasted up around the streets of Swansea when The Clash hit town in May, 1977. If you were one of those obsessive fans that went around painstakingly peeling tour posters from buildings before relocating them to your bedroom wall, (or even if you just bought one at the gig) you might be quids in. In 2010 an original of this very poster was sold at auction at Bonhams for the bouffant-raising sum of £900. Joe Strummer must be rotating at a considerable velocity in his punk rock grave. For all things punk and Swansea related go here. For all things Joe Strummer and Newport related go here.
