You can’t get more London than the Clash. It’s up there with double decker busses and black cabs, but with twice the edge! They have created some of the UK’s most iconic music and were the leading figures of the Punk movement and all that came with it. It was therefor a pleasure working with the original lead guitarist, singer and song writer for The Clash Mick Jones. A long time since those gritty early days of Punk and although Mick rocked up in a suit there is still evidence of the Punk underneath. This shoot was for OFM and the access had been arranged though a Champagne brand for which he will perform on an exclusive island for a small group of people who can afford it. I always see the teenage years to be the centre of ripples in the water created by a stone. We all create waves as teenagers like a stone that cracks into the still surface of the water but as we grow older we too, like the ripples, slowly become a part of the still water around us. This happens with Mick Jones, the Punk movement but it is also a result of the society changing and the objections one had to the Thatcher era is hardly the same as the objections one experience now. Yet, Mick has the edge, and I do feel that if he feels wronged again, he will still be there, at the forefront creating new ripples.
