:: The Clash - Rude Boy/Punk In London - 2DVD set

Punk was mostly about attitude. The Sex Pistols were a manufactured band created by Malcolm McLaren in svengali role. Their musical and social skills were borderline.

The Clash was a real band with an articulate front man in Joe Strummer, leaving The Clash locked in their time zone as the key band of the era.

This is a 2 DVD set - ‘Rude Boy’ and ‘Punk In London’. ‘Rude Boy’ is a pseudo documentary of a Clash Tour. We see the events through the life and perspective of Ray the Roadie who is either in the process of getting drunk / stoned or passed out / recovering. It is truly gritty and includes memorable footage of the Clash in action.

‘Punk in London’ is a collection of videos covering a number of bands of the era - including some of the lessor lights such as X-Ray Spex and the Subway Sect. The music is loud, manic and fiercely idealistic. It is truly engaging and both DVD's are well worth viewing.
