The Music Book of 2008 has arrived!

"I called myself Joe Strummer because I can only play all six strings at once, or none at all." --Joe Strummer from The Clash

The Clash were a band like no other. Part of the original wave of British punk bands to emerge in the 1970s, their incendiary gigs, intelligent song writing, and definitive style caught the spirit of the times and made them a worldwide phenomenon. Rolling Stone magazine declared London Calling one of the greatest albums of all time.

The Clash, in partnership with Atlantic Books, have released a spectacular biography. Yes, it is big and it is hot pink, and yes it is filled with amazing unseen archival photography, tour posters and artwork.

What makes this book unique and engaging is the narration by each of the band members. In a conversationalist tone, each member recounts their childhood, their early influences, and their beginnings in the music industry.

What follows is a personal and honest account of life on the road, in the studio, on stage, and at home as each band member tells their story in their own words.
