Stars Line Up For Strummer Video Farewell

JOE STRUMMER's pals MATT DILLON and director JIM JARMUSCH appear in what will be the punk icon's final video release.

The pair are among the stars who appear in THE MESCALEROS' final promo to support their single REDEMPTION SONG - a tribute to their late frontman, who died last December (02).

The stars appear before a giant mural of THE CLASH icon in Manhattan, New York, which was created as a tribute to him.

The video, directed by JOSH CHEUSE (corr), centres on the making of the spray-painted memorial.

Archived footage of Strummer also features in the new promo, as does never-before-seen performance footage of The Mescaleros at London's BRIXTON ACADEMY.
