If you're interested in The Clash-particularly during their peak in 77,78,79, and the personalities behind the music, this is a fascinating easy-read that's frequently amusing in it's depiction of the minutiae of day-to-day life in showbusiness,which is basically what The Clash were operating in,though they'd balk at the word showbusiness.It confirmed my suspicions about who the most egotistical members of the group were too.(Clue Strummer-RIP-wasn't one of them.) An entertaining read but probably for hard-core fans of The Clash only,and if you're not one of them i feel sorry for you !

This was a right good read - there's loads of insights into the members of the Clash - they said and did what you'd expect them to. My particular interest was Joe Strummer, but it's a balanced and insightful history of a group at top of their game -having fun, causing havoc, living up to their reputation. I recommend it strongly. It's given a lot of credence by having a forward by Joe Strummer and because it's written by someone who was in the thick of the action, rather than a second hand account. It's got warts and all which makes it even better.

Arrived promptly and well packaged; and the obscene doodle in the back was very pleasing for the guy whose gift it was and added a certain something to the whole aesthetic. Wish more books would come with giant red cocks in the back. Genuinely it was a plus, not a criticism.

Format: Paperback
Johnny Green writes from his personal experience as road manager for The Clash between the years 1877 - 1980 when they were at the very height of their powers. His recollections however - as you may expect - are somewhat hazed by the quantities of substances, both legal and illegal, he consumed in those riotous days. Reformed and rehabilitated, you may find that reading this book is more like having to endure the 'what I did in the war' stories of an elderly and incontinent grand-dad... If we weren't there - and some of us were - the boys' music says more about those wild years than this plodding prose could ever do justice to. Buy the book if your granny hasn't already bored you rigid about her days at the Anti-Nazi League rallies. Buy this book if you're a fan of the demented ravings of cult-cartoonist Ray Lowry (easily the best thing about this slim tome). Otherwise, save yer cash and buy the music! ...
