Joe Strummer Plaque To Be Unveiled At Site Of Former Squat

New tribute to The Clash frontman announced...

A new plaque honouring Joe Strummer will be unveiled later this week.

The year-long festival Punk.London is currently drawing to a close, with a number of events and exhibitions helping the project go out with a bang.

Iconic Clash frontman Joe Strummer is set to be honoured with a new community plaque, unveiled at his former home of 33 Daventry St. NW1.

The singer joined a squatting community at the address during 1978 to 1979, where he completed much of his finest work.

The plaque will be unveiled 1.01pm on Wednesday, December 7th – the anniversary of the release of The Clash’s iconic ‘London Calling’ single.

Amy Lamé, Night Czar for London, will be in attendance: "I was incredibly proud to be announced as London’s first Night Czar at the historic 100 Club last month. It was one of my proudest moments for so many reasons, including being on the same stage made famous by The Clash and other legendary bands. I’m delighted to see one of my heroes honoured in this way and it’s a reminder that Joe Strummer’s influence is still shaping peoples’ lives. I can see punk’s do-it-yourself attitude in London’s pop-up restaurants, clubs and of course in the music venues that stage new bands and artists every night."
