Clash “Sound System” box to be the last reissue, says Mick Jones
Mick Jones has told Rolling Stone that there will be no more archival Clash reissues after the Sound System box set.
When asked about specifically about the lack of live recordings on the new box he responds by saying they’re “already out there” (i.e. bootlegs) and then goes on to say “I’m not even thinking about any more Clash releases. This is it for me, and I say that with an exclamation mark.”
In a fascinating interview he says there are “not really” any outtakes left in the vault and acknowledges that the band should have probably taken a break, rather then splitting up.

Sound System is out tomorrow, as well as the 5 Studio Albums box sets and the Clash Hits Back compilation.
