The Clash in their rehearsal studio, London, 1976 I met them at their ICA gig in 1976 and went to Chalk Farm to photograph them soon afterwards. They look cool and lean and hungry. They had iconic status even then. The look is down to Paul Simonon [centre]. He did the clothes, the backdrops, the Jackson Pollock splashes on the shirts. Mick [Jones, right] and Joe [Strummer, left] wrote the songs, but Paul was the artist.
