The whirlwind evening began at Wallplay on Orchard Street, where videos of the band in its heyday blared across giant screens and black-and-white prints of some of the most iconic images of the band — or of any rock band, for that matter — adorned the walls, courtesy of Rock Paper Photo, the e-commerce fine art photography dealers.
Today, GuitarWorld.com presents the exclusive premiere of a previously unreleased version of "London's Burning" by the Clash. The track, which is included on the band's new deluxe, career-spanning box set, Sound System, is from their first-ever recording session at Beaconsfield Film School in 1976 and was recorded by Julien Temple.
According to Variety, Julie Delpy will be directing a movie about the life of Joe Strummer, the late frontman and guitarist from The Clash. The film, which will be called The Right Profile, named after a song on London Calling, will focus on Strummer's years with the band and his planned disappearance from the limelight in 1982.
