(Gibson) On Thursday night (December 8), Mick Jones partnered with former Clash bandmate Paul Simonon to perform Clash material together for the first time since 1982. As reported by NME.com, the show, staged at the Scala in London, saw the duo perform 12 Clash songs in total.

Musician guests who joined in included singer-songwriter Pete Wylie, Richard Archer of the band Hard-Fi, and members of The Farm. The set included several Clash classics, including "London Calling," "Train in Vain," "Guns of Brixton" and "Should I Stay or Should I Go." Jones wrapped up the show with a rendition of The Farm's "All Together Now," which he dedicated to the memory of John Lennon.

The event was part of a series of concerts staged throughout England to support the Hillsborough Justice Campaign. The organization was formed in the wake of the 1989 Hillsborough football tragedy, in which 96 people lost their lives. more on this story
