I was there :)
One night, a few years ago, I was standing in a queue at a gig when I overheard three young girls talking behind me. “I wish I’d seen The Clash” said one, “Oh yeah, me too, I’d give anything to have seen The Clash” replied her friend.
Over thirty years after they split, a Clash gig remains a coveted place to be. I feel really lucky that I got to see them, to have been in amongst the heat, the power, the energy and the gob that was being down the front at a Clash gig. There was so much gob, it was horrible. I had to wipe it off my lenses with my T-shirt then I’d get home and find it all over my back, my hair and my bag.
They looked so bloody good: the hand-painted logos on shirts, combats and jackets, the onstage and off-stage poses, the cheekbones! They gave us the music that filled their souls – reggae. Before they came on stage there was a masterclass in reggae and dub – obscure tracks that were impossible to source. Then there was their music… which was relevant in every town and city, not just in this country but across the world. Everyone could sing along with Joe – angry, loud and brash about the system that was failing them and their people – and we still do.
Photographer Virginia Turbett’s first photo assignment was with the Sex Pistols while they were filming the Pretty Vacant video. She spent the next ten years photographing for Sounds, Smash Hits, The Face and ID: the music, the fans and fashion of the punk, heavy metal, mod, new romantic, reggae, 2-tone and electro pop scenes. Her work took her to the USA and Europe shooting features for hundreds of bands and solo artists including The Clash, Blondie, Iggy Pop, Prince, U2, Andy Warhol, Frank Zappa, Nick Cave, Depeche Mode, the Jam, Madness, David Bowie and Duran Duran.
