Lost In The Supermarket originates from the album London Calling (1979). According to the credits former Clash drummer Topper Headon appears as drummer in this Afghan Whigs performance. It is more likely that Curley used a sample from Topper Headon’s drum work in the Clash song Train In Vain and looped this as the rhythm track.
