It must be giveaway season here at ENS, it seems like I have had quite a few in recent months, and this one just might be the best one yet. If for some reason you are not familiar with The Clash and Joe Strummer, stop now and close this site, and don’t come back until you have at least listened to London Calling.
Ok, now that those folks left, we can talk about the giveaway. To get the facts about the upcoming giveaway, lets hear it straight from the PR mouth, shall we? (trailer video after the jump as well)
The ongoing 30th anniversary salute to the Clash etches a new peak with the long-awaited DVD release of JOE STRUMMER: THE FUTURE IS UNWRITTEN, a film by Julien Temple, which will arrive in stores July 8th on Legacy Recordings, a division of SONY BMG MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT.
The intimate biographical portrait of Clash frontman, vocalist, rhythm guitarist, and primal lyricist Joe Strummer (b. Aug. 21, 1952 â€“ d. Dec. 22, 2002) underscores his passion for the music, and his instincts as a committed social and political activist. His body of work, alongside his partners in the Clash, led the band to be inscribed in rock history as â€œthe only band that matteredâ€ then â€“ and the only band that really matters now.
Filmmaker Templeâ€™s 30-year association with John Graham Mellor aka Joe Strummer resounds throughout the course of the film, as the Clash City Rockerâ€™s life and times and influences unfold. THE FUTURE IS UNWRITTEN â€“ with narration throughout by Strummer from his BBC radio show â€“ is a major musical event in its own right, featuring some 65 songs heard in full or in part.
