I Need a Dodge! Joe Strummer on the Run
A documentary film by Nick Hall
The UK premiere 25 March 2015 at Koko Rock N Roll Cinema - London
Soon after I started investigating Joe Strummer’s refuge in Spain in 1984/5
I heard a recording of an interview on Spanish national radio from 1997.
In the interview Joe talks about a car he had in Madrid some years earlier.
One day he left the car in a carpark but couldn’t remember which one. And there it stayed.
In the interview Joe appeals to the Spanish people to help him find his car.
I couldn’t help wondering what had happened to Joe’s Dodge and what he was doing in Madrid without the rest of The Clash.
I thought I’d dig around…
Joe Strummer touched many peoples’ lives in Spain during this period.
He became friends with the biggest stars in Spanish music and produced an LP for a rock band from Granada.
Everyone I have interviewed for the film tells an interesting and often funny tale of their time with a rock star at a professional and personal crossroads.
I knew it was a story that needed to be told and an investigation that needed to be carried completed – just in case!
