9780099524205: Route 19 Revisited: The Clash and London Calling

Twenty-eight years after its original release, The Clash's London Calling was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. It has topped polls for the best album of the seventies (and of the eighties). It regularly makes the top five in Best of British album polls; and its always there in the polls for the Greatest Albums of All Time.

Now Marcus Gray tells the story of when, how and where this iconic album was made, detailing the stories behind its songs, revealing contexts for the album both personal and political, and considering the effects since on the members of the band and on our culture.

Review:

"Meticulous detail" ( Telegraph)

"There are amazing stories" (Andrew Perry Mojo)

"Well written and thoroughly researched, it is also perspicacious and ambitious in its placing of an hour of guitar music in the context of individual lives, post-war Britain, the heady power of American popular culture over British teenagers, and - that redoubtable cliché of the rock 'n' roll life - the trappings of fame...This seems to be the kind of celebratory chronicling that [lead singer Joe Strummer himself], who died at the age of fifty in 2002, might have welcomed" (PJ Carnehan Times Literary Supplement)

"Gray's book is a triumph in that his obsessive detail enhances and illuminates a classic record" (Alasdair Mabbott The Herald)

"Gray's book is a sound tribute" ( Sunday Herald)

Book Description:

One of the greatest rock'n'roll records of all time, and one of the greatest bands, finally get the book they deserve
