Overview

In just six short years, THE CLASH reinvented rock and roll. As influential as it was inspirational, the group helped usher in the U.K. punk movement of ‘76/’77, before evolving into one of the most forward thinking rock acts of the early 1980s. Staking claim to the slogan “the only band that matters”, The Clash – Joe Strummer, Mick Jones, Paul Simonon and Topper Headon – were innovators who fused ska, reggae and rockabilly with thought probing rebellion at a time when mediocrity ruled the musical landscape. From its first-ever gigs with The Sex Pistols to the creation of its triumphant 1979 album ‘London Calling’ and on to the global success of 1982’s ‘Combat Rock’ and everything in between, THE CLASH: ESSENTIAL INTERVIEWS collects the group’s most candid and indispensible media interactions. It is a must-read for any Clash fan.

Editorial Reviews

Strummernews - Johnny Appleseed
A nice collection of interviews from various sources covering early clash to Clash Mark II.
Some really interesting stuff in here...and they look like the full interviews...not just some choice
quotes like the ones in Clash Talking book...which I guess you could take out of context.
Also a balance of shall we say "believers" and "non-believers".
A nice addition to my now bulging clash library...and I'd say well worth the money too a clash nutter like me.
A well put together
