The Clash: Unseen Joe Strummer Interview

The Clash: Unseen Joe Strummer Interview

THE CLASH's FIVE STUDIO albums have been remastered and re-housed in a new sound system box set that includes non-album singles, rarities, B-sides and over 50 demos. To celebrate this auspicious occasion, Google have released a five-part Clash documentary series via their Google Play store.

Audio Ammunition is centered around new interviews with Mick Jones, Paul Simonon and Topper Headon alongside unseen footage of the late Joe Strummer.

Google's Tim Quirk told The Guardian: "We'd been talking to Sony for a long time about what we might do, but the moment a lightbulb went off over my head was when they told me they'd uncovered lots of unseen, unused interview footage with Joe Strummer. I thought 'oh, 15-20 minutes, that's fine, I can get 3-4 usable minutes out of that'. But it was hours and hours: more than two dozen DVDs. It was from when they sat down to do [2000 documentary] Westway to the World: Joe in front of a camera being interviewed about the entire arc of the band's career."
