In 1976 The Clash played a gig with the Sex Pistols in Manchester. They returned in 1980 to headline the Apollo, and to record Bank-robber in a local studio named Pluto. Eight weeks later the band was in New York, immersing themselves in the city’s post-disco club culture. 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. 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.
