This 2-CD album features 32 of the band’s iconic tracks, sequenced from their legendary Brixton Fairdeal show in 1982.
‘Hits Back’ contains the best studio recordings of the full set played on the night, plus 8 additional tracks. It also comes with the original setlist, as handwritten by Joe Strummer, which he usually tapped to the back of his Telecaster before each gig.
“Every show was different. Joe would spend a lot of time composing the running order, considering dynamics, emotional impact and the key the songs were in.
This record is based on Joe’s setlist from The Casbah Club UK Tour, Brixton Fairdeal, 10th July 1982”
