The Moon Turned Around And Shot Someone: Joe Strummer After The Clash

Post by rudebhoy »

Great article about Joe's solo career in the latest Hot Press. (I guess it's nominally a review of Assembly, but it's more than that.)

Thanks great article.

I still don't know why it's often repeated that the Clash split in 1986, the announcement came in 1985.

I’ve always wondered the root of this too. Was there some sort of final legal dissolution I’m unaware of?

I think it must be a legal thing. But they announced the end about a week after CtC was released.

Last paragraph about his headstone is great.
