22nd December 2002 is the day Joe Strummer passed. 22nd December is the day his family & friends come together to remember. 22nd December is the day fans around the world pay their respects to a man who many see a true wordsmith, the people’s spokesperson and the man with the plan.

For us its a day to remind ourselves of our objectives and to make sure we are doing all we can to uphold Joe’s message & ideals.

Our sole purpose, our very reason for existence, is to keep Joe’s campfire burning bright, inviting and warm. Within our global community, we get to see first hand just how much of an impact he had on people – words are not enough to express just how inspirational & motivational that is for us.

Joe Strummer´s spirit is with us, coming through the airwaves loud and clear, it´s undeniable.

We are deeply honoured to be flying Joe’s banner which carries the message “Without people, you’re nothing” and we vow to always be connecting, helping and supporting projects around the world that create positive change and empowerment through music.

Because change is needed in the world and we believe that music will one day be the change.

So please, wherever you are in the world, put on your Strummer tracks, turn up your stereos, play your gig like it’s your last and raise a glass to Joe Strummer – and shout at the top of your voice: “Viva Joe Strummer”.
