London Calling – The UK’s Premier Clash tribute!
Consisting of 4 guys from Bristol, London Calling put on a performance with energy and enthusiasm recreating the sound and intensity of The Clash. The members of the band are all genuine fans and put their all into their shows, recently tackling the band’s albums in full as they celebrate their 40th anniversaries. In 2020 the focus will turn to 1980’s Sandinista!
London Calling was formed in 2004 as a one-off gig for charity and to celebrate the life of Joe Strummer After playing the short (12) song set we were asked to play the whole set again, with half the audience joining them on the tiny stage. From that point they decided to improve the act and carry on.
After a few years off and several line-up changes, the band are: Reg Shaw aka Joe Strummer, Dave Devonald aka Mick Jones, Joe Guatieri aka Paul Simonon and James Wise aka Topper Headon.
London Calling have played in the USA and Europe and were in the Julien Temple film biog about Joe Strummer, The Future is Unwritten.
