The Clash were an English rock band that formed in 1976 as part of the original wave of British punk rock. Along with punk rock, they experimented with reggae, ska, dub, funk, rap and rockabilly. For most of their recording career, The Clash consisted of Joe Strummer (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Mick Jones (lead guitar, vocals), Paul Simonon (bass, backing vocals, occasional lead vocals) and Nicky “Topper” Headon (drums, percussion). Headon left the group in 1982, and internal friction led to Jones’s departure the following year. The group continued with new members, but finally disbanded in early 1986.

The Clash were a major success in the UK from the release of their debut album, The Clash, in 1977. Their third album, London Calling, released in the UK in December 1979, brought them popularity in the United States when it came out there the following month. It received wide critical acclaim; a decade later Rolling Stone magazine declared it the best album of the 1980s.

The Clash’s politicised lyrics, musical experimentation, and rebellious attitude had a far-reaching influence on rock, alternative rock in particular. They became widely referred to as “The Only Band That Matters”, originally a promotional slogan introduced by the group’s record label, CBS. In January 2003 the band—including original drummer Terry Chimes—were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked The Clash number 30 on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.

D.O.A. is a hardcore punk band from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. They are often referred to as the “founders” of hardcore punk, along with Black Flag, Bad Brains, Teen Idles, and Minor Threat. Their second album Hardcore ’81 was thought by many[1] to have been the first actual reference to the second wave of the American punk sound as hardcore. Singer/guitarist Joey “Shithead” Keithley is the only founding member to have stayed in the band throughout its entire history. However, original bassist Randy Rampage has been active in the band in recent years and has played on two of the band’s last three albums, although he is not in the current lineup. D.O.A. has often released music on Jello Biafra’s Alternative Tentacles Records, and they have released an album with Jello Biafra titled Last Scream of the Missing Neighbors.

D.O.A. has always maintained an uncompromising anarchist populist political stance. The band is known for its outspoken political opinions and has a history of performing for many causes and benefits. Its slogan is “Talk minus Action equals Zero.” The band has been active on many issues, including Anti-racism, anti-globalization, freedom of speech, and the environment.

The Damned are an English punk band formed in London in 1976. They are notable for being the first punk rock band from the United Kingdom to release a single (“New Rose”), an album (Damned Damned Damned), and to tour the United States. The Damned later evolved into one of the forerunners of the gothic genre.

They have incorporated numerous styles into their music and image, including: garage rock, psychedelic rock, cabaret, and the theatrical rock of Screaming Lord Sutch and Alex Harvey. Lead singer Dave Vanian’s vocal style has been described as similar to a crooner. The Damned have dissolved and reformed many times, with Vanian as the sole constant member. However, the lineups have always included either guitarist Captain Sensible and/or drummer Rat Scabies, who are both founding members. The current line-up includes Vanian, Captain Sensible, Monty Oxy Moron, Pinch and Stu West.

MIKE OLDFIELD “Five Miles Out” 12″ LP Vinyl Virgin Records 1982

The first track, “Taurus II”, is a long-form piece with changing melodies and instrumental settings. It features many familiar sounds from his earlier albums, such as uilleann pipes and female chorus. After the vocal section (called “The Deep Deep Sound”) the music quotes the main riff from “Taurus I”, a song from Oldfield’s previous album, QE2.

“Family Man” was Oldfield’s first “real” rock song; Maggie Reilly provides vocals. It was released as a single. Hall & Oates covered the song in 1982 for their album H2O, with their version reaching #6 on the US pop charts and #15 in the UK. It thus became one of the very few songs penned by Oldfield to chart in the United States.

“Orabidoo” is another long and changing tune. It features vocals sung by Oldfield and Reilly, both through a vocoder. At the end of the track, there is a song, “Ireland’s Eye”, sung by Reilly and accompanied by acoustic guitar. “Mount Teidi” is a shorter instrumental piece, named after Mount Teide on the Spanish island of Tenerife.

“Five Miles Out” was also released as a single. Despite being less than five minutes long, it had an unusually complex structure, with multiple vocal parts. The lyrics concerned Oldfield’s experience of a near-tragic aeroplane flight. Reilly sings with a clean voice while Oldfield uses vocoder most of time himself. The song features the same guitar riff that appears in the beginning of “Taurus II”.

Five Miles Out, the album, was more popular than Oldfield’s last few releases. It charted at #7 in the UK, whereas both QE2 (1980) and Platinum (1979) had failed to reach the top twenty. Oldfield’s commercial revival would continue with subsequent albums Crises (1983) and Discovery (1984). The album was recorded in Buckinghamshire in 1981 and 1982, and the Five Miles Out World Tour 1982 was in promotion of the album.
