London Calling

Long before them people from Vice Magazine could call Dancehall the new punk rock, The Clash mixed up British and Jamaican musical influences and created their very own one-drop-soaked version of the no-future sound.
More than 30 years after their first live appearance and four years after his Joe Strummer´s death, director Julian Temple draws an incredible portrait of The Clash´s lead-singer. Strictly recommended.

P.S. Also check the cover-version of the Clash´s “Guns of Brixton” performed by German punk-rockers Die Toten Hosen and Reggae-superstar Gentleman at YouTube.
