Next weekend marks the 40th Anniversary of The Clash’s debut album. Mark Perryman asks what the 1977 punk and politics mix was all about.

A Riot of Our Own. From the publisher. Night and Day with the Clash. Disaffected youth anointed the Clash as their spokesmen and made the group synonymous with punk itself in the late 1970s.
