‘If you keep walking all the way down London’s Portobello Road, way past the tourists, the bric-a-brac stalls and antique shops and you will eventually find yourself under the A40 Westway. Towards the end of 1977 the Westway boasted none of its present day urban beautification. Instead it was just another post war depressed, undeveloped, graffiti covered wasteland with a grey 60′s concrete elevated urban freeway overshadowing the neighborhood. The previous year the area was host to the infamous 1976 Notting Hill Carnival riots. This was surely the ideal inner city location for the continuation of the Clash story and photo-session. Most of the band only had to take a short stroll from home to the location. It was a bright sunny day and everyone was in a great mood the band were own home turf. After one hour we had finished, with no makeup, no stylists or art directors or press officers to delay things. Simple and fast, organic and relaxed, the best way to take photographs.’ Adrian Boot
