The Clashmen Meet The Pearlman

Ira Robbins, Trouser Press, February 1979

"It wasn't the easiest thing I've ever I done, that's for sure." I had Sandy Pearlman, Record Producer, on the phone from some unnamed restaurant on Long Island discussing Give 'Em Enough Rope, the Clash album that took several months to record in three cities. "It was certainly worth the trouble — there's no doubt about that. I saw the Clash play in Manchester and thought that they were the best rock'n'roll band in the world."
