Description: In the late 1970's times were a-changing. Punk was just about dead (long live punk) and the experimental sounds and political commentary of post-punk and new wave bands began emerging from the ashes. In 1978 The Clash released their ska influenced (White Man) In Hammersmith Palais and Hong Kong Garden. 1979 saw the release of The Jam's scathing 'The Eton Rifles' and The Clash's ominous 'London Calling'. In 1981, against a backdrop of rising unemployment and social unrest, the apocolyptic and unforgettable Ghost Town by the Specials hit a national nerve and helped define an era.
