"Whenever you walk on stage – maximum hazard!"

As The Clash’s debut album celebrates its 40th anniversary, Uncut is proud to unveil a deluxe edition of the Ultimate Music Guide. Inside, we tell the complete story of the punk firebrands who revolutionised rock’n’roll. We unearth remarkable interviews, many of them unseen for years, from the archives of NME, Melody Maker and Uncut. Our peerless team of critics contribute in-depth new reviews of every Clash album. An all-star jury – headed by Mick Jones and Paul Simonon – vote on their best Clash tracks ever.
And there’s more!
At one end of their career, we trace the band’s pre-history back to the pub rock scene and Joe Strummer’s early band, the 101’ers, while at the other end we look at Joe Strummer and Mick Jones’ careers after The Clash.
Then there’s our miscellany – a guide to the singles, collaborations, collector’s items, compilations, live albums and more – for the discerning Clash completist.
The entire deluxe edition is illustrated with ultra-rare photos – and we’ve even enlisted Mick Jones to write the introduction! “There were so many good times in The Clash,” he says, “They really are too numerous to mention.”
