Boshier taught The Clash's Joe Strummer on a foundation year course at London's Central School of Art & Design in 1970-71.and on remetting the Clashi in 1978 was promptly tasked with producing a songbook as a companion to the release of the group's second long-player, Give 'Em Enough Rope (for which Coon had designed the poster Global Revolution). With spiky lettering and harsh graphics, Boshier's 60-page paperback in 12" x 9" format proved as visually startling as the aural aggression communicated by The Clash.
