Clash's Mick Jones Explains The Need For A New Box Set

(hennemusic) Clash guitarist Mick Jones says in a new interview that the new 12-disc box set, "Sound System" (due September 9), will be the band's final reissue project.

"I'm not even thinking about any more Clash releases," Jones tells Rolling Stone while he also explained the need for an updated box set. "This is it for me, and I say that with an exclamation mark."

"For me, it was a chance to get the music remastered," says the guitarist. "I knew that some of the tapes were getting rotten. There have been other remasters lately, but in the past few years the technology has really increased. I mean, I buy other peoples' records mostly old recordings and I always ask if it's been remastered.

"I think we'll be hearing more than we heard before, hopefully. That's pretty much what we managed to do with the records. So the box set comes with nearly 99 percent of the Clash's recorded work."

"I listened to everything," Jones continued. "It's taken about three years, though I obviously wasn't working on it all that time. But it took three years from its inception until completion. At first, the record company just wanted some reissues. But I looked at is as a chance to get all the stuff out. Then I suggested a box." more on this story
