The fantastic "Concrete and Clay" is performed by the Unit Four Plus Two on the site of the Barbican which is under construction. Pathe Pictorial use the setting as a literal interpretation of the song - concrete and clay - get it? In a follow on from the previous story a transistor radio is balanced on an oil drum to suggest that the workmen can hear this song on Radio Caroline.
In this precursor to the pop video there are C/Us of the band members as they walk like wandering minstrels over the scaffolding and play their guitars amongst the sand and rubble. Good shots of the band as they play and enjoy themselves immensely. What a fantastic song! The soundtrack has sound effects of building work laid over the top. Ends with a pull back shot showing the band in the middle of the building site. Fab!
