El Clash Combo @ Bonds

Can it really be 26 years ago this month already that The Clash played their almost two-week
residency at Times Square club Bond's? Back in 1981 we took down this poster (or one just like it) from wherever it was hanging in the area and hung it back up in the hallway of Tony's pre-gentrified Flatbush, Brooklyn apartment ... 158 1/2 Nevin Street, if I'm not mistaken. Went to at least two of the Bond's shows and probably a third. Recall opening acts included Bush Tetras, Grandmaster Flash and Joe Ely, a landmark event in Punk Rock History...
