AMHERST, N.H. (February 15, 2013)--The legal contract for the U.S. debut of the English punk rock band The Clash is going on the auction block in New Hampshire along with other band items.
The Clash documents dated Jan. 23, 1979, were drafted for a performance at New York's Palladium the following month and include a diagram of the stage and a proposed advertising layout.
The band, known for "London Calling," ''Should I Stay or Should I Go" and "Rock the Casbah," played the Palladium several more times that year.
A rare Fender guitar used by singer Joe Strummer and other items also were offered online Thursday by RR Auction in Amherst. Much of the collection belonged to Gerry Harrington, Strummer's former manager, who died Feb. 9.
The auction ends Feb. 21.
