We Are the Clash: Reagan, Thatcher, and the Last Stand of a Band That Mattered by Mark Anderson and Ralph Heibutzki

July 6, 2018 at 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Mark Anderson cofounded the local punk-activism group Positive Force and cowrote the definitive history of Washington’s punk scene, Dance of Days. Now he’s tackling political music from a different angle, digging into the career of the Clash, the seminal British act. With coauthor Ralph Heibutzki, Anderson focuses on an unexpected chapter of the band’s story: its widely derided final years. Maybe this reading will inspire you to pull out that once-played copy of Cut the Crap for a reappraisal
