~On 14th December 1979 an album was released that infused reggae, rockabilly, ska, New Orleans R&B, pop, lounge jazz, and hard rock. The songs reflected social displacement, unemployment, racial conflict, drug use, and the responsibilities of adulthood.

Original and timeless for a generation of punk fans. The Clash’s third album ‘London Calling’ was an instant classic.

Now, nearly 40 years later The Continental on South Meadow Lane, Preston are celebrating such a triumphant record by playing it in full as part of ‘Classic Album Night 9’.

A high -end audio system will transmit The Clash’s music next Thursday May 16th 2019. It will take place in the Snug from 8pm and entrance is completely free.

Every month a different classic vinyl LP is played courtesy of close associates at Richer Sounds. The records are donated from Action Records.

Here are the past eight records previously listened too during the classic album night :-

  • David Bowie - Hunky Dory
  • Fleetwood Mac - Rumours
  • Roxy Music - For Your Pleasure
  • Joy Division - Unknown Pleasures
