Clash, The

The Clash, Omnibus Press

This is a large format paperback filled with shots of The Clash both onstage and off. It is also accompanied by a fairly literate commentary on what The Clash were, and has comments from members of the band.

The Clash actually stood for something other than themselves and made some variable but memorable music so it's nice to see a flow of things that commemorate their existence. Clash fans should check this out. People who don't know the band, who like the idea of a social consciousness that also has humility, and a feeling for the importance of fans should also check it out. Better still: listen to the music.
