The Clash were amazed with what they had seen in New York and recorded 'The Magnificent Seven', a rap-like hit which got airplay on black radio in New York. When they did 11 shows at the Bonds International in 1981, they invited Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five to open their shows. But rather than "achieve a cultural cross-over, it threatened to widen the gap". The time wasn't ripe yet and Grandmaster Flash got booed off the stage. The later shows Treacherous Three and ESG (who they helped recording their first album) suffered the same fate. Futura 2000 who had designed some artwork for the show went on to record 'The Escapades of Futura 2000' with the group.
