Email: Tim(at)

Facebook: The Clash Blog Facebook page

Twitter: see the homepage or – twitter account theclashblog

Personal photos related to the band, concert recollections or meetings with band members or associated people are most welcome. The more information I can share via the site the better resource it becomes. I welcome ideas for projects and events that should be of interest to Clash fans, especially art gallery events, concerts, tributes and book or magazine features.

Areas I welcome help with:

  • Landmarks: if you are in a city where The Clash ever played I’ll be doing a feature on the venue itself – and the concert if the information is available.
  • Photography: same as above, recent or older images of venues/landmarks
  • Reviews: Reviews of albums, books or films that will appeal to Clash fans
  • Ideas: In general, running features for the blog that will be of interest to many visitors

Thanks to the many who have already contributed. The more input from you the better the site becomes.


The future is unwritten, so share it

    Tim, any chance you can reproduce the page topper (No pun intended) "What the Clash wont do for money".i don't remember seeing it back inthe day and would be interested to do so.



  5. Karl says:

    Cheers mate. BTW, see any football results last weekend. 2-1 to the champions. Ha ha.

    • Karl,

      I've a great sense of humour (as must you, supporting the dullest man u team in decades). It was nice of us to gift you a win I agree….in 35 years of watching games I've never seen one handed over with such kindness. Have you? Or did you see something else? Champions….yeah until Chelski lock it up this season. Methinks you miss your special one.

  6. Karl says:

    I refer the honourable member to the remark I made some weeks ago.
    I have to admit though, not all that inspiring to watch at the moment. Vs Wigan, they were pretty damn good but, it was only Wigan.

    LOOOOOOOVE the WEBSITE/BLOG and proud to say I made it a favorite in nothing flat! Fantastic Job!

  8. Hi Tim.
    Your readers migh be interested in a piece I've written for the New Statesman magazine about the Jail Guitar Doors documentary, Breaking Rocks.
    It's at….
    The film features Mick Jones teaming up with Billy Bragg to help out with his prisoner rehabilitation project.
    Keep up the good work.

    Met Michael Foot once had a talk over a cup of tea at a conference in Dublin . His belief in the working class was what kept him going for so long. A great man who has cast a long shadow

    I've got a tryptich of original prints of the band at the London Calling Concert, with provenance from the photographer. These prints include the famous guitar smashing scene, and some prints leading up to it.

    Do contact me if any interested fans want to acquire these?

    I saw the Clash a few times including two nights at the Top Rank in Birmingham on the 16 Tons tour.

    They played a cover of the 101ers 'Keys To Your Heart' and I've never come across a recording of it by them.I hoped it might have been a part of the extras on the repackaged London Calling CD a few years back,but no joy…

    Anyone know of a live version out there anywhere?

  17. Pete Stevens says:

    @ Clint….I saw them the week before in Deeside and the best site I know is this one with information about known recordings throughout their career….

    Click on the appropriate year/dates and hopefully you will be able to find something useful. Spizz (probably as Ahtletico Spizz 80) supported them at one of the two dates -- I was actually in contact with him last night -- and next time I see him I could ask him if there are any recordings he knows of. Sadly the Deeside gig wasn't recorded, but thankfully I do have other bootlegs where I was in attendance.

    I'll also ask Clash archivist Steve Kirk whether he can help with some information. Steve recently posted Joe's final live performance with the Mescaleros here and he's another friend who might be able to help.

  18. I've started a Facebook campaign to try and get The Clash as the Christmas Number One in the UK music charts. Its to ensure Simon Cowell's X-Factor winner doesn't get to number one. They're are other Facebook campaigns to get other songs to number one, but those are mostly novelty or irronic choices. This Is England while not representing the best time in the career of The Clash does hauntingly depict a modern day Britain exactly 25 years after the song came out. There's mass unemployment, the Conservatives are in power and there's a pessimistic outlook on when things are going to get better. I think this song could mean a lot to a lot of people, many of whom probably have never heard of it before.

    So if you could use your blog to get behind my campaign I would be very grateful.
