Back in late 1970’s, Camden Town was just another abandoned area of north London which, after years of neglect, had been left to the drunks and winos that littered the pavements of Chalk Farm Road. In the middle of it – within a filthy, dilapidated former British Rail goods yard – sat the practice rooms, Rehearsal Rehearsals. They were also photographed rehearsing at their studio in the Gin House at the Stables Market, which was also the former site of the Proud Galleries in Camden. 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. The band’s manifesto was outlined in an early NME interview: ‘We’re anti-Fascist, we’re anti-violence, we’re anti-racist and we’re pro-creative.’ Pat Gilbert
