The Clash (Kill Your Idols)

The Clash (Kill Your Idols) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For seven years The Clash conducted a barely contained experiment in popular music, dragging in styles as far-flung from their council flat beginnings as rap, reggae, drum and bass, rockabilly and their own concoction of amphetamine (and cocaine) fuelled rock and roll. The Clash made only five records and never had a number one hit but Mick Jones, Joe Strummer, Paul Simonon and Topper Headon represented one of the last, great, quixotic attempts to wrest transcendence from rock and roll. " The idea of the band was to play it maximum," said Joe Strummer, and that's exactly what they did. The entire Clash back catalog has been re-mastered and re-released to coincide with the October 1999 release of From Here to Eternity, the first ever live Clash album. A complete discography of Clash albums and singles, and band members' post-Clash careers are included.

Synopsis:

Including a complete discography of Clash albums and singles, this band biography of the Kill Your Idols series profiles the 1980s group which dragged in such styles as rap, reggae, drum and bass, rockabilly, and their own concoction of amphetamine (and cocaine) fueled rock and roll. 10 photos.
