A new exhibition celebrating The Clash has arrived in London, and it’s a near-essential pilgrimage for fans of the punk icons across the globe.
Marking the fortieth anniversary of the band’s seminal third album, ‘London Calling’, the exhibition is on at the Museum of London and it’s full of items that played a huge role in writing the band’s name into the annals of music history, reports NME.
While our selection of pictures will give you an idea of what to expect, it’s only a small taster of the expansive collection on display at the gallery itself.
