The Clash Unveils Box-Set, Honored on Delancey

Where once Moscot posters lived, Clash billboards now reign. Well, at least temporarily.
Last Thursday night, Mick Jones and Paul Simonon of “the only band that matters” descended upon 118 Orchard Street to celebrate the release of the new 12-disc Clash box-set, Sound System. The WALLPLAY multimedia event space, which now occupies the old Moscot store, organized the launch event and hosted a behind-closed-doors Q&A session.
In the days since, event co-sponsor Rock Paper Photo retained the ground level for an exhibition room of Clash photography. The partnership with Sony Music includes rare photographs (all for sale, natch) accompanied by flat-panel televisions with concert footage on loop (included in the box-set). Note that the show concludes tonight at 8pm.
The press blitz continued afterward, as Mick Jones apparently hightailed it up to Alphabet City to unveil the new Joe Strummer tribute mural outside Niagara.
