The Clash – Joe Strummer


A famous story about The Clash is that the band was banned from Saturday Night Live in 1981 because of their rebellious and provocative behaviour.

During their scheduled performance on the TV show, the band refused to play their first choice song, “I Fought the Law”, because they had played it several times before. Instead, they decided to play “Straight to Hell”, a more controversial and politically charged song. When they started to play, singer Joe Strummer began to sing “You’re going straight to hell” in a repetitive and insistent manner. The lyrics were considered blasphemous and offensive by the show’s censors, who interrupted their performance and cut the broadcast.

This tumultuous performance created controversy and helped to reinforce The Clash’s reputation as a rebellious and politically engaged band. Although it was a difficult moment for the band at the time, the anecdote has since been considered one of the most iconic moments in punk rock history.

Longevity of carbon pigment inks
Tests carried out in the USA, in the Wilhem research center, guarantee a longevity of 150 years if these inks are associated with acid-free papers, with the Hahnemühle or Canson paper ranges we work with.
On a more technical aspect, the carbon inks are encapsulated: it is coal dust mixed with a binder which allows to deposit it on the paper. No difference in density between the printer output and after drying. There is a slight evaporation of the binder which stabilizes the pigment on the coating. It remains then the coal dust, which will give the density and nuance of the black and white impression.
The inks are made from pure monochromatic pigments chosen for their resistance to light, available in seven progressive shades, from light gray to black. They are specially designed to reflect light back to the viewer’s eye and completely eliminate color anomalies such as metamerism (which changes color depending on the light source). The Piezography System, monochrome inks, provides a unique photographic look that includes depth and brilliance throughout the image surface.
The formula allows for a longevity that reaches record levels when printing on archival and fine art papers. The print quality is at least equal to the best silver baryta print, if not better.
