Sony Music releases The Clash Sound System – the band’s re-mastered recorded works collected together for the first time – on 6th September. Contained within classic boombox packaging designed by Paul Simonon, the boxset contains the band’s 5 seminal studio albums in their original 8-disc format, newly remastered by The Clash, a further 3 discs featuring demos, non-album singles, rarities and B-sides, a DVD with previously unseen footage by both Don Letts and Julien Temple, original promo videos and live footage, an owner’s manual booklet, reprints of the band’s original ‘Armagideon Times’ fanzine as well as a brand new edition curated and designed by Paul Simonon and merchandise including dog tags, badges, stickers and an exclusive Clash poster.

Conceived and compiled by The Clash, ‘Sound System’ is a significant and unique collection of the complete recorded works by the 20th century’s most influential British band. Greatly enhanced by the careful remastering rendering the original recordings more vital and crisp, all contained in Paul Simonon’s iconic design, with a selection of bonus material, ‘Sound System’ is the most important and unique boxset to be released.

Prompted by demand for a complete collection, ‘Sound System’ is a powerful reminder of The Clash’s enduring legacy. It’s hard to think of a band before or since that have exerted such universal influence. The 70’s punk movement gave birth to some important bands, but none were more important than The Clash. Here were a band who pushed and broke musical boundaries, a band who fused musical experimentation with a socio-political conscience. From their eponymously-titled debut album in 1977, the band incorporated elements of reggae, rap, jazz, dance, rockabilly and ska in their music. Their passionate, political agenda continues to inspire new fans and musicians alike. Indeed, the issues The Clash tackled are as relevant today as they were in the late 70s/early 80s. Dubbed “the only band that matters” in their heyday, the same could be said almost 40 years later.

The Clash – Hits Back

(2CD Best Of)

Released simultaneously, ‘The Clash Hits Back’ features 33 of the band’s iconic tracks, across a 2-CD set. The tracklisting is sequenced from the band’s legendary Brixton Fairdeal show in 1982.

Hits Back contains the best studio recordings of the full set, plus 8 additional iconic tracks, and will be available digitally and on CD. It comes with the original setlist, handwritten by Joe Strummer which he usually taped to the back of his Telecaster before each gig.

“Every show was different. Joe would spend a lot of time composing the running order, considering dynamics, emotional impact and the key the songs were in. This record is based on Joe’s setlist from The Casbah Club UK Tour, Brixton Fairdeal, 10th July 1982”. Mick, Paul & Topper.
