Joe Strummer - Mangrove Steel Band Tee
This variant is currently sold out
Joe Strummer, lead singer of the The Clash, is one of the most iconic figures in punk history. In true punk style, Joe and his bandmates were notoriously rebellious, and their music reflected their anti-authority, anti-racist and political ideals. Strummer was a man of many talents, and the world will remember his music. But for those who knew him best, Joe Strummer will always be known as a good man who fought for equality and against social injustices.
Here you see Joe wearing a Mangrove Steel Band Tee.
Joe Strummer stood at London's Notting Hill Gate to pose in this shirt commemorating the Mangrove Steelband, which was born in that very neighborhood in 1980. The 20 core members (and dozens of part-timers) create a joyous racket that carries on the Trinidadian steel tradition; and the group (now a full-fledged steel "orchestra") has won countless awards and competitions since its formation. But it has also served a crucial role in motivating and uplifting disadvantaged kids and inspiring the community at large — achievements Joe Strummer was especially inclined to appreciate.
