Following in the footsteps (kind of) of Jimi Hendrix and Bob Dylan, The Clash are opening a pop-up shop in Soho in September to publicise the remastered releases of the 'The Clash Hits Back' compilation and the 'Sound System' boxset, which contains all of the band's studio albums. There will also be lots of pictures and bits of memorabilia to see, including manuscripts, clothing and more.
"A pop up store celebrating the work of The Clash is set to open next month in London.
The Black Market Clash store will mark the remastered releases of the 'The Clash Hits Back' compilation and the 'Sound System' boxset, which contains all of the band's studio albums. The store will be open from September 7-22 at 75 Berwick Street, Soho. The pop-up will also display items from the Clash archive, including instruments, stagewear, rare memorabilia and original manuscripts.
Art directed and curated by the band and Robert Gordon McHarg lll of The Subway Gallery, the store will be hosting film and video of the band, with the memorabilia and artifact exhibition downstairs, whilst limited items will be for sale on the ground floor.
