The unique story of the Clash, by the Clash. The Clash were a band like no other. Pioneers of punk rock, their incendiary gigs, intelligent songwriting, definitive style and passionate idealism caught the spirit of the times and made them a worldwide phenomenon.

One of the most influential bands of their time, they have inspired bookshelves of commentary, but this is the only book to be created by the band themselves. With unprecedented access to the Clash archives and original interviews with band, this publication tells it like it was. The full story from the last gang in town. Strummer, Jones, Simonon and Headon in their own words.

Reviews
‘One of the greatest bands of all time.' The Edge, U2 
'A massive inspiration for me.' Bernard Sumner, Joy Division and New Order 
'I adore The Clash.' Pete Townshend, The Who
'One of England's greatest bands.' Nick Hornby 

‘What could be more fun than a book about The Clash written by The Clash - What makes this tome more worthy than the reams of unofficial Clash literature available is that in it, the band tells their story in their own words - it's packed with little secrets and playful digs - Brilliant.' Short List 

'Thrilling - This is a treasure trove of hitherto undiscovered gems. Long overdue.' Classic Rock '

'This book is a cracker - crammed with Clash bits and bobs.' The Sunday Times
