As part of the Why Punk? series, Bakehouse Studios presents UK punk legend and iconic dub and reggae DJ Don Letts in conversation.
Letts managed The Slits, formed the group Big Audio Dynamite with Mick Jones (ex-The Clash), and using the punk DIY ethic has directed videos for artists including The Clash, Elvis Costello, The Undertones, and Bob Marley.
On Tuesday 6th November (Cup Day), Letts appears in conversation with Woody McDonald (The Cave – RRR) at Thornbury Theatre to talk about his career in music and film, his experiences of late 70s London punk, and the unification of punk and Jamaican reggae culture.
There’ll also be a screening of Letts’ documentary ‘Two Sevens Clash’ featuring his archival footage of The Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Slits, Linton Kwesi Johnson and more, plus an excerpt from the ‘Subculture’ series focusing on Punk and Two-Tone in the UK in the late 1970s, with contributions from Norman Jay, Viv Albertine and Pauline Black.
