Radio 4 to pen songs for Joe Strummer movie

The band also reveal details of a New York show

Radio 4 have revealed they have been approached to write songs for a movie about the life of The Clash’s co-frontman Joe Strummer.

The film is to be produced by Oscar-winning actor Tim Robbins.

“We’re writing and writing,” Radio 4 guitarist Dave Milone told NME.COM, “not just for the movie but we’re hoping the material will be our next record too.”


The group have also announced a show next month in Brooklyn following the recent cancellation of their show at Northsix.

As previously reported here, the band were set to be the final band ever to play the Williamsburg venue on January 31, but the show was axed when the venue’s electricity was unexpectedly cut-off a day earlier than planned.

Radio 4 will play Studio B in Brooklyn on March 2.
