    The initial idea for "This Is Radio Clash" apparently came from a conversation between singer Joe Strummer, aide Kosmo Vinyl, and manager Bernie Rhodes about the band setting up their own radio station. Joe Strummer admitted in an interview with Melody Maker in 1988 that he had nicked the bassline from the Queen hit "Another One Bites The Dust" (which in itself shares many similarities with another Disco classic, Chic's "Good Times").

    For many New York-area music lovers, seeing one or more of The Clash shows at Bond International Casino in May and June of 1981 remains a lifelong highlight. But “the only band that matters” wasn’t the only act that performed during that historic run in Times Square. The line-up of support bands during the Bond’s run showcases The Clash’s commitment to musical and cultural diversity, and included hip-hop, reggae, country, and rockabilly acts. DJ El Toro celebrated those shows for International Clash Day http://blog.kexp.org/2016/02/03/international-clash-day-riot-in-times-square/

    This song, based on the idea of The Clash broadcasting from a pirate radio station, was considered by American music critic Eric Schafer to be the first British hip-hop record: http://www.theclash.com/gb/music/singles/this-is-radio-clash
