New Clash - Tokyo Calling - LP

In late January and early February of 1982 the Clash played eight shows in Japan. The band was embarking on a month-long tour of the Far East that, as fate would have it, would be the last tour with their classic lineup. When it was over, drummer Topper Headon was kicked out because of his disruptive drug habit, and the band would never be the same.

According to music journalist Chris Salewicz’s book Redemption Song: The Ballad of Joe Stummer, the Clash had refused to play in Japan prior to this tour because of the Japanese custom forbidding audience members to stand up. They agreed to play after a compromise was struck: The fans could stand, but only at their seats.
