Rat Patrol is the name given to the version of ‘Combat Rock’ that was produced by Mick Jones. It’s quite different from what actually got sold–sometimes not nearly as good–but it’s fascinating to see how the tracks evolved, and to see some of what was cut.

I don’t have the entire tape–some was damaged or unlistenable. But this is a must for Clash fans.

Enjoy a few tastes, or just go straight for the zip.
