20th September 1976, 100 Club Punk Festival, London


On this night in Sex Pistols/Punk history took place a famous event. THE 100 CLUB PUNK FESTIVAL. A 2 day event- it was a punk rock showcase. Over the last 6-8 weeks the word 'punk' had been ascribed to this new musical phenomenon.

On Monday 20th September 1976 Subway Sect, Suzie & The Banshees, The Clash & headliners the Sex Pistols played. I have 3 recordings from tonights gig (of varying quality)
Tonight I present to you those recordings.

First up is the debut performance of Suzie & The Banshees.
line up:
Siouxsie vocals
Steve Spunka (later called Severin) on Bass
Marco Pirroni on Guitar
& of course Sid Vicious on Drums

Track:
They played one long song which as most of us will know was the Lord's Prayer mixed up with a bit of Twist & Shout, Deutschland Uber Alles & Knocking On Heavens Door.

The quality of the recording is piss poor but its a real historical punk event, the first Suzie Gig, First night of the first ever punk festival & the first public performance of Sid in any shape or form.

Next up that night was the Clash. This recording is better than the Suzi one. So I thought I would include their gig as part of this historic night - I got the set list off another site.

Line up:
Joe Strummer Vocals, Guitar
Mick Jones Vocals, Guitar
Paul Simmonon Bass
Terry Chimes Drums

Tracks:
01 White Riot
02 London's Burning
