Look at that crowd! Excellent stuff.
Great footage, takes me back, was near the front the week before this at Bristol Colston Hall.
I was also at The Colston Hall about half way back though. Sadly no Mikey Dread in Bristol.

I'm at the gig in the footage.
Is the footage the 16th or the 17th?
Just gave Marky's remaster a quick relisten and yeah, it's the 17th.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

I was very slightly hoping we'd get something from the 16th, but more than happy to have video from the 17th. One of my all time favs. I love how Mikey is center stage even for Bankrobber and Joe is shouting his lyrics from Paul's mic.

Yes, we were disappointed Mr Dread didn't appear, but brilliant show anyhow.

Did look but nope. I was fairly close to the front at one point. But the crowd forever moving you found yourself shoved all over. The punk gigs I went to were always like this. In the end I used to push myself right to the front at gigs. The only times I ever spotted myself on film is The Damned's 10th anniversary gig at the Town and Country club and The Manic Street Preachers at Band Explosion for radio one at the Marquee. I wish I could be seen at a Clash gig but sadly no. I've scoured all the pics from Victoria Park but I can't pick myself out. Still I know I was there and that's all that matters to me. ;)

Thanks Marky, great stuff but I can't seem to hear any sound, anybody else?

It seems as if they're teasing with a few clips released here and there, can't wait to see all of it.
Sittin' at home, and I'm so excited
Goin' to the party though we weren't invited

No sound mate sadly. As you say just a tease. Don't know if it's just silent or if you join you will get sound and the full clip?

If anyone can work out the song a new soundtrack could be applied.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board
