“The Clash played in town [Apollo] on the 16 tons tour on Feb 3 1980, playing new songs from London Calling. The day before this gig they had recorded Bankrobber with support act the legendary Mickey Dread. The intro music they used for the tour was a version of 16 tons by Tennesee Ernie Ford.
The On Parole gig also at the Apollo was on July 2 1978, supported by the Specials and Suicide. The gig was so good that Strummer wanted to organise a gig the following night at Rafters. He always said Manchester was "Clash town".”
