‘Punk Rock Warlord’ book launch party

22 February 2014 Under: Clash Memories, Clash News, Events, Joe Strummer

A very good Saturday evening to you and welcome back to the blog. It was a magnificent day here with perfect temperatures and blue skies, followed by a sunset that looked like a fluffy upside down meringue all perfectly raspberry and blackcurrant coloured. I love San Diego in winter. Spent part of the day gardening and now I ache like an old man.

On to Clash flavoured things of course and I’ve news of a very special occasion that is coming up in London, it’s a while off, three months from now to be exact on May 22nd but this gives you good advance warning and allows you to plan a trip up to London around it if you’re not in the capital.

It’s the launch of a new book about Joe Strummer titled “Punk Rock Warlord: The Life and Work of Joe Strummer” and fittingly it takes place at The Elgin – famed west London residence for The 101′ers back in the day.  The new book is edited by Barry Faulk and Brady Harrison and examines the life and career of Joe Strummer in depth, in fact at this point I should quote from the official blurb.

“the first peer-reviewed, academic work to reflect on the life and work of the late Joe Strummer. The book explores the relevance of Joe Strummer within the continuing legacies of both punk rock and progressive politics”

Where: The Elgin, Ladbroke Grove London W11

When: Thursday May 22nd, 19:00-23:00

What: The official book launch/party for Punk Rock Warlord: The Life and Work of Joe Strummer.

The evening includes a Q&A session with some of the contributors to the book, a set of 101er’s, Clash and Mescaleros songs performed by the much loved 48 Thrills, DJ set from Ray Gange (‘Rude Boy’ and now good bloke all round), a pop-up Joe Strummer Gallery, special guests plus an opportunity to buy the book at a discount.

You can keep up to date with the event via the Facebook page for the book launch – I’ll predict it’s going to be packed. The book will be published in April and is available online via this link at Ashgate Publishing with an introductory online price of £54, I’m trying to find out if it will be published outside of the UK but nothing official yet. The link above tells you far more about the book and authors also.

Sure to be a brilliant night and I hope some of you will be able to make it along, get photos and videos for the blog (hint) and a signed copy for your blogger too (hint hint). It’ll also be on the events page of the site and I’ll surely mention again nearer the time. Late May and Arsenal winning the league seem a long way off.

Before I go, a giant thank you for reading and sharing the blog so far this year. I made a commitment to write more frequently this year (so far, so good) and you’ve made it all worthwhile by visiting in ever-increasing numbers. Traffic in January was 41% higher than a year earlier and February so far is 120% greater than the same month in 2013. Thanks so much for reading and I hope enjoying it, your comments and sharing make it feel like you’re paying attention so cheers for that.
