The three surviving members of the Clash are set to reunite for an exclusive BBC Radio 6 Music Show next month.

As Hennemusic reports, Mick Jones, Paul Simonon and Topper Headon will be promoting the release of their new greatest hits set "The Clash Hits Back," as well as the two box sets - "Sound System" and "The Clash 5-Studio Album Set." The show will be hosted by Cerys Matthews at BBC's Maida Vale studios in London. Matthews has issued the following statement:

"I am thrilled to be talking with Mick, Paul and Topper at length on 6 Music and will be asking them about their early years, their inspirations and where life has taken them since ... Their music gave a generation a voice not just in music, but in the choice of how they lived their everyday lives and it still sounds as great, as fresh and loaded with good intent as music can ever be."

During the course of the show, the band will be taking questions from the audience. Fans have until 25th August to apply for tickets and can do so at the BBC 6 Music website. The show will be pre-recorded on September 6th. A broadcast date has yet to be announced.

    Lucky enough to see Strummer with the Mescaleroes (sp?) supporting the Who before he died. Glad to hear they can be adults and get together for a good reason.
