Mick Jones, Paul Simonon, Topper Headon and Joe Strummer are the four core members of the British punk band, The Clash. With a lengthy career that reached success in both the U.K. and the U.S., The Clash is remembered for their angst-ridden, rebellious rock songs, with lyrics that often addressed the political and social issues of the time.
In 1981, along with their album "Sandinista!" The Clash released an EP, an extended-play record that doesn't technically qualify as a whole album, called "Black Market Clash." (In 1980, it was expanded and repackaged as "Super Black Market Clash.")
The EP's cover photo was taken duringThe Notting Hill Carnival Riot in 1976, a racially charged event that took place near Portobello Road in Notting Hill, a neighborhood in London. The man in the photo facing the wall of police is Don Lets, the band's videographer.
