Synopsis

When punk arrived in the UK in the mid-seventies it sent shock waves around the country. Spearheading the musical assault on all we had previously known were The Clash - a mighty punk rock machine that exhilarated its audience and that dared to draw on influences such as dub reggae, rockabilly and ska. After The Clash, rock music was never quite the same again.This amazing eBook opens with a personal appraisal of the band, its history and its place in the pantheon of rock music by Ben Myers. Next, the true story of The Clash is told by Clash war artist Ray Lowry who toured with the band from the rough beginnings of the band to the conquest of America. Cartoonist Lowry - The man who designed the iconic London Calling cover artwork - was the official illustrator on one of the bands riotous tours and this unique book reveals what it was like to be with The Clash day and night. In addition to Lowrys vivid handwritten memories are his splendidly evocative cartoons which give a superb flavour of life on the road with Strummer, Jones, Simonon and Headon. To complete this indispensable record of a truly great band, a full discography and a track by track analysis of the bands studio albums is also included.
