A total of £3,439 was raised. A big thank you to Gordon and the Subway Gallery and all the people who supported the December fundraising art exhibition,
The Rock & Roll Public Library, a testament to popular culture, springs directly from the enormous personal archive of Mick Jones, a collection that began well before The Clash were formed in 1976; as such it forms an invaluable guide to the collision of cultural influences that informed The Clash and Jones.
McHarg brings Joe Strummer centre stage by covering the gallery with photocopies of Joe’s lyrics, images, thoughts and scribblings. In Gordon’s words “It was an act of love and rebellion, for an artist who’s words, music and actions have left me better off.”
