Established in 1976 London during the punk-rock insurgence, The Clash have outlasted their peers while creating some of rock ‘n’ roll history’s most influential albums. Their music encompassed increasingly melding influences ranging from reggae to rockabilly. The Clash composed by veteran music journalist, Martin Popoff, takes you on a stunningly in-depth journey of the history, people, songwriting and recording of all 109 studio cuts. Illustrated with rare on- and off-stage photography, fan’s will love flipping through the pages of a group whose staunch political stance and groundbreaking amalgam of music genres earned them the title, “The Only Band That Matters”.
