Mick Jones, iconic guitarist and songwriter with The Clash, Big Audio Dynamite, and Carbon Silicon, has amassed an impressive collection of the paraphernalia of performance and marketing materials of the bands he has worked with. This archive sits alongside a parallel general collection of books, magazines, videos, ephemera, toys and games which mark out his life, times, and influences. The installation of this material will turn the Gallery at NUCA into a remarkable archive, raising questions about the act of collecting as well as offering some small insight into the influences and interests of a musician and cultural icon.
