'REDEMPTION SONG' the ballad of Joe Strummer

Thursday 25th April 2013 at 7pm

Entrance free

The Londesborough with George Binette are thrilled to be hosting an evening with Chris Salewicz. Chris will be reading extracts from his definitive biography of Joe Strummer 'Redemption Song'  The Ballad of Joe Strummer.

Following the reading there will be a Q and A about Joe and The Clash. Chris's friendship with Joe spanned 30 years including travelling on the road with the band.

"...As Salewicz indicates in this interview, he had to write Redemption Song. It is a detailed, open and honest biography of the man. From the perspective of a close friend for 30 years, Salewicz has managed to not only capture the energy, angst, and poetic beauty of the musician, songwriter, political activist, poet and cultural icon, he has skilfully articulated Strummer's fears, his complexity and reveals the man's down to earth humanity. Never shirking in laying bare the demons that fuelled Strummer's gut-wrenchingly dark low times and the wilderness years following the demise of The Clash, Salewicz writes with compelling authority. With rich detail culled from his friendship with Strummer himself, his many many friends and, of course, his family, Salewicz makes a very persuasive case for him to be added to the long list of protest singers that include Woody Guthrie, John Lennon, and Bob Marley. He certainly convinced me. A sincere and rivetting biography of a warm, outspoken and searingly articulate man, whose drive, integrity, passion, and artistic accomplishments ensure his centrality within forms and discourses of music and popular culture."
