Product description

The Clash: trendsetters, icons, revolutionaries. They were the pioneers of British punk rock and their story is steeped in mythology. Many people have an opinion about what made them who they were - this book gives the chance to read the full story, from the band themselves. This is the first official book to be created by the band. With unprecedented access to the Clash archive, this landmark publication brings together previously unseen material - including tour posters, artwork, and photos of the band at home, on stage, in the studio and on the road - with each member telling it like it was, in their own words.

Review quote

'What could be more fun than a book about The Clash written by The Clash - What makes this tome more worthy than the reams of unofficial Clash literature available is that in it, the band tells their story in their own words - it's packed with little secrets and playful digs - Brilliant.' Short List 'Thrilling - This is a treasure trove of hitherto undiscovered gems. Long overdue.' Classic Rock 'Gorgeous - A visual and textual feast.' Irish Examiner 'A wealth of old photographs, posters and record covers that will have some of us yearning for the days when we had enough hair to sport a Mohawk.' Glasgow Herald 'This book is a cracker - crammed with Clash bits and bobs.' The Sunday Times 'A lavish career retrospective' Q Magazine
