The Clash are releasing their Sound System box set this week, a new interview with the BBC reveals the secrets behind some of their best songs. The Independent writes:


“The finale to the anthemic "I Fought The Law", it turns out, was recorded in a public toilet to create an echo chamber effect, with drummer Topper Headon playing on the pipes with a monkey wrench. "Guns of Brixton", another Clash cllaassic, features the sound of the band members pulling the Velcro on the back of the recording studios.”


The Sound System box set  includes remastered versions of the classic albums The Clash, Give 'Em Enough Rope, London Calling, Sandinista!, and Combat Rock. It was designed by bassist Paul Simonon and will also include some of the choicest things that boxed sets feature: namely rare tracks, b-sides, demo versions of songs and rarities. Hungry for a taste now? Check a full album version of London Calling on the Spacelab Retrograde Channel on the Spacelab Media Player.
