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, blazing rock and roll and iconic imagery. Passion is a Fashion draws on over 70 interviews with the key participants in the story - roadies, producers, friends and fans - and above all conversations with the band members themselves, including Joe Strummer before his death, to give the first real insight into what went on behind the scenes during the Clash's ten-year career. The 25th anniversary reissue of the Clash's classic London Calling album last year prompted a huge revival of interest in the band, which contributed to this book becoming a significant sales success in hardback. It was also acclaimed by reviewers and those close to the band as the definitive account, likely and deserving to stay in print for years to come. Gritty, independent-minded, compelling and above all authoritative, Passion Is A Fashion is the biography the Clash have long deserved.
