It’s 40 years since The Clash’s third album ‘London Calling’ was released, and an exhibition has pulled together a host of memorabilia for that iconic album.

London Calling was and is a hugely compelling melting pot of musical styles, driven by a passion for action and a fierce desire for social justice. The album’s music and lyrics remain as relevant today as they were on release.

As an exhibition, it’s one of those that’s a series of glass cases with “holy relics” for people to worship, and at its heard is the famous broken guitar, on a protective cushion.

It’s fair to say that if you’re a fan of music, or the group in particular, then the exhibition will be hugely exciting, showing off early drafts and sketches to explain the creative process at work.
