Trailer for The Rise and Fall of the Clash

[Video Link] This looks like a sad documentary about my favorite band, The Clash.

The Rise and Fall of the Clash features previously unseen footage of the band at work and at play, interviews with the individual band members and with those who knew them well, and traces the downward trajectory of a band who were at one point "the biggest band in the world." This is not a film that pulls any punches, but neither does it overlook the life-changing effect that The Clash brought to so many. Over 90 minutes it paints the fascinating inside story of rival, treachery and betrayal, and the internal band dynamics and managerial interference that ultimately led The Clash to self-destruct.

If you are in Minneapolis, you can view a screening of The Rise and Fall of the Clash at the Ritz Theater on October 6.
