Eddie Duggan on a legendary punk gig
It was a few weeks after the Clash's debut album had been released. I was 17, and it was the biggest gig on the punk scene at the time.
Those were turbulent times, dominated by unemployment and discontent. A few months earlier, the Sex Pistols had been interviewed on TV by Bill Grundy and caused outrage. As a result, many of the dates on their Anarchy In The UK tour – on which they were joined by the Clash, among others – had been cancelled.
