Coming only a few months on the heels of the poorly received Clash tribute record "Burning London" will be a release more likely to excite the legendary punk rock band's fans -- the first ever authorized live Clash album.
The much-delayed live disc, to be titled "From Here To Eternity: The Clash Live," will be in stores in October, according to the band's label, Epic Records. The album pulls live performances from 1978 through 1982 at venues ranging from London's Music Machine Club to New York's Shea Stadium (where the band opened for the Who). "From Here To Eternity" will feature some of the group's most popular songs, including "London Calling," "Train In Vain," and "Should I Stay Or Should I Go."
Also coming in the fall is "Westway To The World," a 90 minute documentary about the band, directed by Don Letts, who helmed 1978's "The Punk Rock Movie" and also co-founded Big Audio Dynamite with former Clash member Mick Jones.
Meanwhile, former bandmember Joe Strummer
is expected to release his next solo album this fall (see [article id="1427151"]"The Clash's Joe Strummer Back With New Album, Mini-Tour"[/article]).
