The Clash

(White Man) In Hammersmith Palais

(White Man) In Hammersmith Palais
Single
UK Release Date: 16 June 1978

This single was the first original song to directly combine rock with reggae.

Written following a reggae all-nighter attended by Strummer and Don Letts in June 1977, the song addresses the state of the nation and the rise of the far-right.

The b-side, The Prisoner, is sung by Mick Jones and takes its title from the 1960's cult TV series of the same name.
