It has been announced that Granada, Spain will be renaming one of it’s squares “Plaza de Joe Strummer,” in memory of the late punk legend, who mentioned the city in The Clash‘s song, “Spanish Bombs.” Here’s what city hall spokeswoman, Maria Jose Anguita, had to say:
“A square has been identified and now the proposal has to be approved by the committee of honours and distinctions. There was a popular petition for this to happen and the city hall accepted it.”
Along with that, a film documenting Strummers’ trip to Spain, which took place after Mick Jones’ departure from The Clash, is currently in the works. The documentary is called “I Need A Dodge,” and the release date is currently unannounced. We’ll keep you posted as more details surface.
