Rude Boy featuring the Clash
Rude Boy featuring The Clash includes 19 songs, 28 performances and 72 mins of live footage. Set against the backdrop of late 70's Britain, Rude Boy is a unique piece of film making and is by far the best document of the music and attitude of the time. Filmed as a fictional documentary, Rude Boy follows a punk (Ray Gange) as he quits his job in a West End sex shop to become a roadie for the most exciting band in the country - The Clash. Capturing The Clash during their "On Parole" & "Sort It Out" UK tours of 1978, Rude Boy is an unparalleled document of one of the best live bands ever to take the stage. Follow the band as they tour the length and the breadth of England and headline the legendary "Rock Against Racism" carnival in Victoria Park, London. Gain exclusive access to the rehearsal rooms and the recording studio, as they lay down tracks to their second album "Give 'Em Enough Rope”.
