Shepard Fairey does The Clash-Doku and Johnny Cash



(Vimeo Direktclash)

Shepard „Obey Giant“ Fairey hat das Cover für ein neues Buch über Johnny Cash von Antonino D’Ambrosio namens „A Heartbeat and a Guitar: Johnny Cash and the Making of Bitter Tears“ gestaltet und Animationen, das Poster und Visuals für die neue Clash-Doku „Let Fury have the Hour“ beigesteuert. Oben die beiden Poster und der Trailer und das alles ist natürlich over the top awesome. Snip von der Website zur Doku:

Let Fury Have the Hour explores how a London punk band led by an English diplomat’s son became a major force in global music and cultural activism, composing songs that radicalized a generation and shaped the consciousness of future generations’ social entrepreneurs, political leaders, cultural creators and citizens. While it’s true that many admire the Clash as punk rock icons, it’s their significant contribution to combining sharp political activism with exhilarating popular culture that advanced World Citizenship, human rights, and peace, that is their more vital, lasting and less glamorous achievement.

The Clash set out to do much more than become rock stars. Early on the band recognized a new moment of social change was emerging in and around mid-1970’s England. The Clash (Joe Strummer, Mick Jones, and Paul Simonon) lived by a clear set of ideals aimed at tearing down the system of injustice and creating a world where those at “the bottom become the top.” The band was indefatigably traveling down the difficult, yet rewarding path of “thinking for others instead of oneself.” And the success that came with a major record contract only served to intensify these ideals, strengthening the Clash to go further.
