Referred to as ‘The Only Band that Matters’, The Clash was a band like no other. Pioneers of British punk-rock; their incendiary gigs, definitive style, intelligent lyrics and passionate idealism captured the spirit of the time and their album ‘London Calling’ was labelled one of the best albums of all time by Rolling Stone magazine. Adrian Boot’s photographic portrait of The Clash reveals a softer side of the punk rockers as they relax and rehearse together as well as shots of them during their legendary performances. Photographed rehearsing at their studio in the Gin House at the Stables Market in Camden which was also the site of the original Proud Galleries in Camden, this exhibition marks a true homecoming for Boot’s extraordinary images of this cult band.
