London Calling are the world’s premiere tribute to The Clash.
Released in April 1977, the self-titled debut LP by The Clash reached #12 in the UK charts and is regarded as one of the greatest punk albums of all time.
London Calling will be performing the entire LP in sequence before playing a selection of hits and fan favourites by The Clash.
London Calling was formed in 2004 as a one-off gig for charity and to celebrate the life of Joe Strummer. After playing the short (12) song set they were asked to play the whole set again, with half the audience joining them on the tiny stage. They decided to sharpen our act and play regularly from that point. They then were caught up in the infamous texting scandal, in which their then bass player was question by Special branch under suspicion of being a terrorist.
After a few years off and several line-up changes, its now settled down to: Reg Shaw aka Joe Strummer, Dave Devonald aka Mick Jones, Joe Guatieri aka Paul Simonon and Shane Tremlin aka Topper Headon. They have played in the USA and Europe and been in the Julien Temple directed Joe Strummer film biog, The Future is Unwritten. Recently they have enjoyed rave reviews and have been playing to increasingly bigger audiences across the UK.
