A scene sketched side stage on the evening Paul Simonon famously smashed his weapon of choice. There must have been something in the air that evening and here I will use Rays own words to further describe this, and the scene of the print.

" New York, New Yoik received The Clash like royalty on the 20th but the evening found Mr Strummer in a bilious mood (It got to us all from time to time. Our man went a little wobbly in the dressing room, hurling a rather heavy ashtray at no-one in particular, before sinking into himself and curling into an unapproachable lump of angst in a corner seat. His ever present girlfriend at the time, the estimable Gabby tried to lure him back to placid waters. By showtime all was repaired and the boys had a great time bringing punk to the punkocracy. Someone had located a candelabra somewhere backstage and Joe appropriated it for a dramatic if somewhat hamlike entrance for 'Armagedion time'. The boy swayed on stage with the candles lit and flickering, a single pale spot eventually illuminating his progress. Kosmo's influence perhaps? " - Ray Lowry
