With the recent release of the The Beatles documentary, The Touring Years, to add to the growing pantheon of films about classic and influential UK bands the one that seems to be the most glaring omission from the late 70’s punk era is The Clash.

Quite what this will be like is anyone’s guess but its released in cinemas and VOD on October 7th. As least its not Brotherhood of Man: The Movie!
