Description by

The arrival of punk in the 1970s heralded an assault on the standards and traditions of music, and heading the attack were The Clash, a revolutionary group that drew on influences such as dub reggae, rockabilly, and ska to the delight of their international audiences. Ray Lowry was the official illustrator on one of the band's riotous tours, and in this unique book he reveals what it was like to be with The Clash night and day. Accompanying Lowry's vivid handwritten memories are his splendidly evocative cartoons which give a superb and authentic depiction of life on the road with Nicky Headon, Mick Jones, Paul Simonon, and Joe Strummer. The complete history of The Clash's rise to prominence and the group's place in the pantheon of rock music is also provided, along with insightful album reviews and a full discography.
