Academic seeks Strummer stories
An academic is inviting union-news.co.uk readers to get in touch with their political memories of Joe Strummer.
Professor Gregor Gall is writing a book, The punk rock politics of Joe Strummer, for Manchester University Press in time for the twentieth anniversary of The Clash singer’s death in 2022.
He said: “I’m researching the influence of Joe Strummer on creating and furthering progressive politics. What I’m particularly interested in is how the content of Strummer’s lyrics (and delivery of those on record and at gigs), interviews, public pronouncements and so on led people to discover and embody left-wing politics (or to reinforce their existing such politics).”
Anyone who would like to contribute to the book can email Gregor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
