The Clash‘s Mick Jones and Topper Headon re-recorded their 1979 ‘Clash’ album track “Jail Guitar Doors” for the charity of the same name, set up by Billy Bragg.

Jones and Headon, who have not been in a recording studio together for more than 35 years, were joined on the track by Bragg as well four ex-inmates who have been helped rehabilate through music by the charity.

The session was filmed as part of a documentary film about the charity, called Breaking Doors, which will premiere at this years Raindance Film Festival in Camden on October 1.

Topper Headon, commenting on the recording, the film and the initiative says: “To see it all come to fruition is absolutely beautiful. It was great to meet these guys.

When I was in prison myself, many years ago, I was lucky enough to have access to a guitar, which belonged to the prison vicar! I know how much it helped me get through it.”
