London Exhibit To Celebrate 40th Anniversary Of Landmark Clash Album

Fans of The Clash dig this! The bands landmark third studio album, London Calling celebrates its 40th anniversary in December, and to mark the milestone, a collection of memorabilia from the band’s archives will go on display at the Museum of London this fall. The exhibit is called “The Clash: London Calling,” and will be open from November 15 through spring 2020. On display will be draft lyrics, stage-worn clothes and photos and film footage providing insight into the creation of the album. Highlights include Joe Strummer's notebook containing the lyrics to a song called "Ice Age," the song that became “London Calling.” Also on display will be the bass guitar Paul Simonon broke onstage at a New York City concert, which wound up gracing the cover of the album.
