Impressive and provocative in equal measure, The Clash persist as one of the greatest punk rock bands in history — defining and shaping 70’s punk culture through their fervent political agenda.

Despite supporting The Sex Pistols at their first gig, Charles Shaar Murray infamously quoted in the NME, “They are the kind of garage band who should speedily be returned to their garage, preferably with the motor running.” Little did he know they would go on to lead the punk movement for the next half decade, with their succession of albums The Clash,  Give ‘Em Enough Rope, London Calling, Sandinista! and Combat Rock.

Regularly cited as “The only band that matters’, and even initiating into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003. They retained persistent quality throughout their 10 year career, delighting us with flickers of reggae, ska, funk and rockabilly amidst their torrent of punk classics. They disbanded in 1986, leaving in their wake a repertoire that is sure to stand the test of time.
