Exiles guitarist/vocalist Simon at Glasgow King Tut’s Joe Strummer night, 22 December 2015, playing an acoustic set of Clash songs to a full house in fine voice.
Set list: 48 Hours, Somebody Got Murdered, Something About England
The Exiles played at a sold out Glasgow King Tut’s at their Joe Strummer Tribute Night on 22 December 2014, with all proceeds going to The Joe Strummer Foundation. Filmed by Nicola Phillips, the full set features What’s My Name, Tommy Gun, Janie Jones, Career Opportunities and The Magnificent Seven. This set features guest drummer, Steve ‘Harry Exile’ Harrison.
Phil and Simon dedicated this set of Clash covers to Chris Warwick, their best friend and long-time Exiles guitarist. Although devastated at Chris’s passing on 17 December 2014, they knew he would want them to play this gig.
Hopefully, there’ll be news of a Chris Warwick tribute gig very soon. Dates and venues are pencilled-in…
