The Peasant's Present:

‘REDEMPTION SONG’ by Chris Salewicz Monday 15th July 2013 Upstairs in the Dining room from 6.30pm.There was a time when the Clash ruled the airwaves and our hearts, they were and most likely remain the cool of the coolest . Joe Strummer sang, wrote and lived his heart out for a better rockin more liberal and more tolerent society. Chris salewicz had his ear throughout Joe's rise and yes there was a fall. Take the late train home and come and listen to the enigmatic Mr Salewicz and remember the day you heard Police and Thieves or White Man in Hammersmith Palais or lets face it: London Calling.  

Entrance Fee: Free

 

An evening hosted by George Binette with Chris Salewicz author of ‘Redemption Song’ the definitive biography of Joe Strummer which is sometimes referred to as: the ballad of Joe Strummer. Chris will be reading extracts from his stunning book followed by a Q&A about Joe and his band The Clash 'George Binette was key to documenting the extraordinay reunion of Strummer and Mick Jones for what proved the final time at the FBU firefighters' benefit gig at Acton Town Hall 15 November 2002.' Chris Salewicz was the right man for the job when it came to writing Strummer’s biography with a friendship that spanned thirty years Chris was privy to Joe’s and the band’s thoughts on many occasions.
