Footnotes

  • Lowry was the band's official 'war artist' (a term coined by Joe Strummer) and the painting offered here is one of a series executed by Lowry during the Clash's USA tour, 1979. His paintings at that time appeared in 'A Riot Of Our Own', written by their road manager Johnny Green. The series of ink-on-paper images have been exhibited in London and elsewhere, including Hong Kong. Lowry is perhaps best known for his design of the band's 'London Calling' album cover.
