"Pat Gilbert's Clash Review"

I've always been intrested in music history since I was really young, and being a fan of The Clash I decided to pick up this book.

Passion is a Fashion tells the performance and album history of The Clash very well, from the growing up days of the band members to the beginning of their music careers. It gives a detailed insight into how The Clash first came to be, their musical influences, their reason for music and most of all, their spirit and testemony to music.

It describes their pollitically charged tracks and poetic song writing as offensive, meaningful, life changing and sometimes terrible, and takes into account their lifestyle, how they lived, their drug and alcohol abuse and money troubles.

It not only gives you a musical insight, it helps the Clash fan that's not so familliar towards the band history. There are pictures that have been added and at the end is a discography of each album. It also explains the band's whereabouts and cronological timeline very well too.

Passion is a fashion takes you to the good times, the bad times and struggles, the glory days and gives you an opinion of each band member fairly. It's also packed full of interviews and behind the scenes of how their albums and tours were done.

It's a must read for fans of punk music history or fans of the band themselves.
