Appearing on delicious gold-coloured vinyl, "The Only Band That Matters" offers a snapshot of the Clash at their raucous live best. The set draws on an archive of live shows that were originally broadcast live on various American radio stations between 1979 and '83. While many of the recordings seem raw and unpolished, it only adds to their appeal. On side one you'll find a string of powerful renditions of stone cold classics such as "White Man", "I Fought The Law" and "White Riot", while side B features some killer versions of the band's more dub and disco influenced later tracks. The 12"-mix length version of "The Magnificent Seven" and full-throttle romp through "Rock The Casbah" are particularly potent.22.50
