An Individual, limited edition, example of vinyl record silhouette art made from a genuine, original, 45rpm, 7” single of London Calling from 1979, by the British punk rock band, The Clash. Released on the Columbia record label, this vinyl single has been reworked into a silhouette of a handheld megaphone.

London Calling was written by Joe Strummer and Mick Jones and It was released as a single from the band’s double album London Calling. This apocalyptic, politically charged rant features the band’s famous combination of reggae bass-lines and punk electric guitar and vocals.  The title alludes to the BBC World Service’s station identification: “This is London calling …”, which was used during World War II, often in broadcasts to occupied countries.  The lyrics reflect the concern felt by Strummer about world events with the reference to “a nuclear error” to the incident at Three Mile Island, which occurred earlier in 1979.
