This Is Radio Clash
Mick Jones, Paul Simonon and Topper Headon from The Clash will be treating 6Music listeners to two hours of their favourite tunes and some Rock N' Roll tales for their first ever radio show: This is Radio Clash. Former manager Bernie Rhodes will also be making some special disguised appearances. Formed in 1976 in the vanguard of British punk, The Clash would soon become one of the most iconic rock bands of their era, a symbol of intelligent protest and stylish rebellion in the turbulent years of the late Seventies and early Eighties. Just as importantly, they were to become unflinching musical pioneers, integrating first militant reggae, then dub, funk, jazz and hip-hop into their music, which has helped to make them one of the most respected and sampled bands by modern DJs and dance musicians. Cracking the Top 10 in America in 1982 - before splitting three years later - they were to leave behind an extraordinary recorded legacy.
