Synopsis:
As iconic a band as any that has ever existed, 'The Clash' remains the definitive British punk rock experience. Where the Sex Pistols were nihilistic, the Clash were fiery and idealistic, charged with righteousness and a political ideology. From the outset, the band was more musically adventurous, expanding its hard rock and roll with reggae, dub, and rockabilly among other roots music. Furthermore, they were blessed with two exceptional songwriters in Joe Strummer and Mick Jones, each with a distinctive voice and style. The Clash copped heavily from classic outlaw imagery, positioning themselves as rebels with a cause.
As a result, they won a passionately devoted following on both sides of the Atlantic. Though 'The Clash' never became the superstars they always threatened to become, they restored passion and protest to rock and roll. For a while, they really did seem like "the only band that mattered". This video features filmed interviews with 'The Clash' and with the sadly departed Joe Strummer, taken from archive recordings made across the band's - and the members thereof's - existence. Including segments going right back to the group's glory days, as well as later clips with Joe and Mick in solo settings, this film provides a wonderful reminder of just how well informed, intelligent, ethical and entertaining these boys could be when given the opportunity to wax lyrical.
