Paul Simonon by Joe Stevens (c)

ON OCT.12 @ SONNYS NIGHT CLUB IN DOVER,NEW HAMPSHIRE ,JOE STEVENS WILL JOIN A LOCAL CLASH COVER GROUP TO NARRATE AN DIGITAL SLIDE SHOW OF HIS PICTURES TAKEN OF THE BAND IN PLACES LIKE MONTEGO BAY, PARIS & JERSEY CITY. STARTING TIME IS AT  9PM.  WEAR SOME COOL THREADS.

WHAT SORT OF STORIES WILL YOU HEAR AND SEE?

HOW ABOUT THE NIGHT I SHOT THE 101’ERS?

THEY WERE DOING A SHOW WITH THE SEX PISTOLS AT THE NASHVILLE ROOMS, A PUB IN
FULHAM,LONDON, NEAR MY FLAT.

THE PISTOLS WERE FRIENDS AND FANTASTIC TO PHOTOGRAPH-SO I WENT.

TO WARM UP MY CAMERAS I TOOK A FEW SHOTS OF JOE AND HIS BAND FINISHING UP THEIR
SET, THEN HEADED TO THE BAR.

THE PISTOLS WERE TAKING THE STAGE, WHILE STRUMMER (WHO I KNEW VAGUELY)AND I 
TRIED TO GET THE BARTENDERS ATTENTION. LAGERS IN HAND WE HAD OUR FIRST CHAT.
ROTTEN AND COMPANY WERE IN GOOD FORM,WHEN A FIGHT ENSUED BETWEEN THE AUDIENCE
AND THE BAND.THE CROWD,SWEATY AND HAMMERED EXPLODED.

I SHOT 2 ROLL OF TRI-X IN A MINUTE.

THE SEX PISTOLS WERE DOING THEIR BEST TO BEAT THE HELL OUT OF THE AUDIENCE. JOE STRUMMER WAS STUNNED,AND APPARANTLY RETIRED THE 101’ERS AND BEGAN FORMING THE  CLASH SOON AFTER.
BECAUSE, AS HE HAS SAID- “I’VE SEEN THE FUTURE AND IT AINT ANOTHER BRITISH BLUES BAND”
