Saw the new Julien Temple documentary Joe Strummer: The Future Is Unwritten yesterday afternoon. It’s a bit long, it won’t convert any new fans, but for the initiated, those who love Joe and/or the Clash, it is essential. Lot of great footage of and insight into the man throughout his life, not all of it positive — in other words, it’s not a hagiography. For Clash fans, the first minute may be worth the price of admission alone, when we see Joe in the studio overdubbing the vocal to “White Riot” in the studio a capella. Make sure your theatre has it turned up loud. Soundtrack looks good too…H
