The British Punk movement was initiated by the Sex Pistols..........and on December 1st 1976........the Thames T.V.'s tea-time programme Today show gave them more notoriety....and Punk rock became the 20th century's second great youth rebellion after rock'n'roll

The Portobello Road is the main road with 37, Lancaster Road off right where Joe Strummer lived...The Golden Cross pub now named the Shannon pub. The shop on the right is now Greggs and S.Fowler & Co. on the left is now Supra (249, Portobello Rd.) and Bee Me (frozen yogurt and cafe) on 251, Portobello Rd.

The following pages unfold from my time at school with Mick Jones.....to Joe's year in Newport to his early years in the 101'ers and the musical influence of The Clash.......

Dear Mr. Whistance,
I wonder if you could please help me with a Clash location question?
I'm going to London in a few weeks and am intending to check out quite a few Clash places (mainly courtesy of the information on your excellent website!), however I'm stuck for a couple which I'd love to visit but can't find anything about online; The riot scene on the rear of the first album, and the street on the front of Black Market Clash. I'm assuming they're somewhere in the vicinity of Ladbroke Grove?
If you could help out it would be really appreciated, and be the icing on the cake for my trip!

Again, thank you in advance if you can help out with the street locations,

Very best wishes,

Hello Don,
That sounds like a good idea and will add the link. I have been on your site before but it is so extensive that I have not found the time to go through it all. It must have taken you a long time to put together and no doubt was a labour of love. I wonder why you never put it in a book.... But then so many people have wondered the same about myself. For me, it is very complicated and involves out-dated human delusions such as 'loyalty' 'integrity' 'sell-out'....
Maybe we could collaborate on a post - just a few juicy titbits from schooldays? It would help promote both our sites.
