Arguably Adrian’s most famous punk photographs are of The Clash on the streets of Belfast in the midst of ‘the Troubles’ – a period when being an Englishman on the streets of the city was not viewed as a wise move. Adrian reveals: ‘The Clash was always good, particularly with things like Belfast where we got into quite a lot of trouble… but I liked all that; I liked pushing the boundaries a bit. So there we were in Belfast; advised not to leave the hotel, which is precisely what we did. We got into a taxi and went down the Falls Road… I got into such trouble with the record company, which asked: “What are you doing endangering the lives of our band?” But the pictures got the covers of all three music papers – Sounds, Melody Maker and NME – the following week. After which CBS thought I was the best thing since sliced bread.’ Adrian Boot
