Behind the music: Joe Strummer’s spirit lives on through his charity | Music | guardian.co.uk

The charity is run by Trish Whelan, who once worked for Island Records. “We used to have a real culture of developing acts at Island,” she says. “Managers and labels used to be happy to take a chance on acts.
