The Clash rock the market once again
The Clash return to their old stomping ground with a new exhibition in Camden
IN 1976, influential punk band The Clash were photographed rehearsing at their studios in Stables Market, Camden Town.
Nearly 35 years on, photographer Adrian Boot’s images have come home with an exhibition at the Proud Gallery – a stone’s throw from the former Gin House where the band once pouted, posed and performed.
London Calling: The Clash by Adrian Boot captures the heady spirit of the days when the band’s pioneering style, lyrics and political idealism were taking the capital’s music scene by storm.
The free exhibition includes shots of The Clash’s legendary live performances as well as a softer side, as Joe Strummer and co relax and rehearse together.

o London Calling is at Proud Camden, The Horse Hospital, Camden Town, until January 30.
