The Clash was an English rock band formed 1976 in London by Joe Strummer, Mick Jones, Paul Simonon and Terry Chimes. Chimes was replaced on drums by Topper Headon soon after they formed. A key player in the original wave of British punk rock, The Clash contributed to the post-punk and new wave movements that emerged, employing elements of reggae, dub, funk, ska and rockabilly. The band effectively split in 1983 with Strummer going on to form The Mescaleros, Simonon to The Good The Bad and The Queen, and Mick Jones to Big Audio Dynamite then Carbon/Silicon. The Clash recorded two masterpiece albums, their first album The Clash, and the third album London Calling. Other outstanding albums include Give 'em Enough Rope and two live albums From Here to Eternity and Live at Shea Stadium. The excellent 2006 compilation The Singles consists of 17x7" replica Singles in a boxed set. This was reissued in 2007 as a single CD compilation.
