Rude Boy

London: Atlantic Releasing, 1980. Vintage studio still photograph from the 1980 film.

A blend of fiction and music documentary, featuring extensive footage of The Clash on tour and in the studio, about a young Clash fan who leaves his job at a Soho sex shop to become a roadie for the band. The Clash would later express their dissatisfaction with the completed project due to what they considered to be racist portrayals of Black characters in the film, and printed button-badges reading "I don't want Rude Boy Clash Film" before the film's theatrical release in 1980.

10 x 8 inches. Near Fine.
