The sound of The Clash returns to Bury St Edmunds 36 years after the punk band’s first controversial concert in the town.

It was on July 14, 1978, that John Hessenthaler, against local authority opposition, promoted The Clash at Bury’s Corn Exchange.

Almost 36 years later, on June 29, John Hessenthaler will re-create the 1978 concert nearby at The Apex with Radio Clash.

The promoters say Radio Clash will re-create The Clash in sound and vision together with the set list they performed in 1978.

They add: “A total treat for lovers of The Clash and connoisseurs of loud, fast rock’n’roll.

“Whether you were alive or not at the time of the 1978 concert or were there – this is a must be at gig.”

The concert will also feature Neville Staple and his band. Neville was the vocalist with The Coventry Automatics, who were on with The Clash at the Corn Exchange in 1978.

Tickets £22.50 from www.theapex.co.uk or 01284 758000.
