Rewind: 1980 - Bankrobber by The Clash finally gets a UK Release


A-Side Bankrobber
Produced by Mikey Dread
Released 2nd August 1980
Chart Placing
UK #12

Robber Dub was scheduled to be on a 12" of the Single but CBS refused to release a 12". Robber Dub turned up on the Compilation Super Black Market Clash. They had already refused to actually release the single in the UK due to it being disliked by the Suits but Import Sales forced them to take action and it resulted in the 2nd highest placed single by The Clash (London Calling was the highest placed peaking at #11 discounting the Re-release in 1991 of Should I Stay or Should I Go which reached #1).
