This definitive biography of legendary punk band the Clash, is the first to draw on original interviews with the band The only internationally successful, million-selling group to emerge from the late seventies London punk scene, the Clash set out to change the world with a potent mix of politics, iconic imagery and blazing rock 'n' roll. It was an agenda mirrored in the Clahs's music, which swiftly evolved from ferocious punk rock ot incorporate reggae, ska, funk, jazz, soul and hip-hop. Passion is a Fashion draws on over 70 interviews with the key participants in ithe story - roadies, producers, friends and fans - and conversations with the Clash: Joe Strummer, Mick Jones, Paul Simonon and Topper Headon. The first book to give real insight into what went on behind the scenes during the Clash's ten-year career, it charts their picaresque progress through the days of the eealry punk scene and their groundbreaking Rock Against Racism gigs, to the arduous touring, to their break out in America and the making of the classic "London Calling" album, all thie way to the band's eventual dissolution and the sudden, sad death of their frontman, Joe Strummer.
Gritty, compelling and above all authoritative, Passion is a Fashion is the biography the Clash has long deserved.
