The Clash, Combat Rock, the Khmer Rouge and a Mysterious Vietnam War Disappearance.

The Clash, Combat Rock, the Khmer Rouge and a Mysterious Vietnam War Disappearance.

The Clash playing live in Boston Massachusetts, USA in 1979 (Bob Gruen).

 On the Clash’s Combat Rock album, released in 1982, there’s a song called Sean Flynn (although my favourite tracks on that album are Know Your Rights and Rock The Casbah.)

On looking into the story of Sean Flynn, I was surprised to discover yet another Punk/Cambodia/Khmer Rouge/Vietnam War link, making this a perfect article for the website, because all of those topics are mentioned in my Punk and ‘70’s-‘80s Memoir, Bombed Out!.
