THE CLASH: D.O.A. (Demos On Arrival)

The best collection of Clash demos and rarities, never released (and if they ain’t been now, I don’t see them coming out ever–Clash ain’t Tupac, after all).  It starts with their earliest Polydor sessions (1976) and goes up through 1982.  Some of these are even better than the originals.  I’m throwing up disc one.  If there’s interest, I’ll put up disc 2 later.
