Plot Summary
This pseudo-documentary follows Ray Gange, a slacker from West London who works at one of the many sex shops in Soho. He is friendly with Joe Strummer, the frontman of the legendary punk band The Clash, and expresses his desire to tour with the group as a roadie. While Joe is receptive, his bandmates are less so -- but after Ray does their tour manager a favor, he's hired. Before long, Ray's bad habits take precedent over his responsibilities, putting The Clash in a bad spot.
