The Clash were simply the greatest rock 'n' roll band of the post-Sixties era. They combined the iconoclasm of the Sex Pistols with the old school rebel swagger of the Stones, striking sullen poses in punk rags, sharp black suits or combat fatigues while tearing through the kind of instantly memorable songs mainstream pop groups would kill for.
Extensively revised and updated from both its 1995 and 2001 incarnations, The Clash: Return of the Last Gang in Town traces the band members' progress from dispiriting rehearsals in damp London basements to packed American stadiums. A fascinatingly detailed account of the first band to take punk's radical politics to the masses and survive for a decade against the odds, it also offers an intriguing investigation into the gap between rock mythology and rock reality.
