Strummerville Calling | Forever Strummer10th Anniversary Calendar 2012

Excited to let you know that we have just announced our FOREVER STRUMMER Calendar for next year which will mark the 10th anniversary of Joe's passing.

The Calendar includes some previously un-seen images and hand-written artifacts from Joe's personal archive along with some of his wonderful words of wisdom and hope.

It's been such a pleasure to put this together and we hope its something that people will treasure.

Due to so many requests we are making Joe's last hand painted Christmas card available again alongside a new design which is a truly beautiful Bob Gruen shot of Joe in the snow, giving some money to a homeless person on the street. Bob said "I never saw Joe pass a needy or homeless person without giving them something" and i guess this shot just captures this in action.

The calendar and Christmas cards are available now for pre-order from our website and will begin to ship on 11.11.11 ~ they can be ordered The calendar and Christmas cards are available now for pre-order from our website and will begin to ship on 11.11.11 ~ they can be ordered Here!!!

Obviously, your support as always is much appreciated and by buying our "stuff" you help us to continue our work.
We are currently working on plans for a Strummerville space in Detroit so watch this space for news of that...
