Riffs on Riffs
October 9th, 2019
On this episode of Riffs on Riffs, Joe & Toby takes a deep dive into the world of punk-rock, with a spotlight on The Clash. As one of the greatest and most ambitious of the first-gen UK punk bands, it goes without saying that Clash’s impact on society was huge… Big enough to lead a generation of disgruntled teenagers wearing studded belts, leather jackets and multi-colored mohawks into the stratosphere of global punk culture. It began with a White Riot in 1977 and ended in 1986 when the band split. With hit titles like ‘Should I Stay or Should I Go,’ ‘Rock the Casbah,’ ‘London Calling,’ and many more, Clash’s eclectic catalog swept the world by storm… Also, welcome a special in-studio guest, Randal Doane, author of the book: Stealing All Transmissions: A Secret History of The Clash.
