London Calling by The Clash, 1979.  Two classic albums, two classic album covers. Even a cursory glance, however, reveals the similarity in photography and typography. Let’s be kind and call it The Clash’s tribute to Elvis… and now we know who Joe Strummer and the boys were imitating with their quiffs. JLT
