Joe Strummer and The Mescaleros
A page that deals with some of the post-Clash work that Joe has done.

Ever wondered where the Clash got their leather jackets?

The answer is from Lewis Leathers, Britain's oldest motorcycle clothing manufacturer, which has been around since 1982. Fast forward to 1956 and Lewis Leathers produced the Bronx, the first motorcycle jacket targeted at Britain's Rock & Roll / Ton-Up teenagers, from here-on-in the only leather jacket for any British teenager to be seen in was a Lewis Leathers original.

When Punk arrived 20 years later, motorcyclist Paul Simonon headed-off with Joe (and Bernie probably holding the chequebook) to Lewis Leathers and the trio picked-out the Lightning jacket which had become the Rockers choice as the 70's wore-on, Paul & Joe wore these jackets right up to the end of 1979 and were followed by Damned guitarist Brian James & the Pistols Steve Jones, who wore his Lightning in the Pretty Vacant video. Not to be outdone Mick Jones got down to the Lewis Leathers shop a year or two later and picked out a Cyclone jacket, the same model was worn by Chrissie Hynde on the first Pretenders album cover.

Lewis Leathers are still producing these same high quality jackets in the UK made to the same exact standard as they were in their heyday, check them out at <>
