Today is International Clash Day, celebrating “music as a tool for social consciousness, a band that made it sound so damn good, and an iconic record that still changes lives 40 years later.”
The iconic record is The Clash’s London Calling—one of my all-time faves—which turns 40 this year.
I was honored to be asked to design this poster for the event hosted by KEXP in London. Several artists contributed, and all of the posters were displayed in a gallery at the event (see the video below.)
Here’s a little video tour of the event space which includes some footage of setting up the gallery. (Look for my poster at about 02:55.)
