London Town

  • slideshow_large


When fifteen-year-old Shay hears the music of The Clash for the first time, it’s a revelation, opening up a new world of social consciousness and anti-establishment defiance beyond anything he’s known in his dead-end London suburb. Drawn into the heart of the city’s burgeoning punk scene, he forges two relationships that will change his life, falling in love with rebellious cool girl Vivian and finding an unexpected connection with none other than The Clash’s electrifying frontman, Joe Strummer.
Propelled by a blistering soundtrack that bounces from The Clash to The Ramones to Buzzcocks, this film captures the sound and spirit of a scene that shook the world.
