We switch things up a bit today! Jim opens up the Book Nook with a report on Passion Is a Fashion: The Real Story of the Clash by Pat Gilbert. It’s a volume rich in detail on the Clash’s formation and early days, filled with quotes from many, many of those who were around the band. And as some of you probably know, Jim is a bit of a Clash fan!
