On July 4, 1976, at a music venue/pub at the bottom of Snig Hill and Bank Street, in the steel town of Sheffield, The Clash played their first live show.
On that day, The Clash had traveled up from London to open a show for The Sex Pistols. While The Sex Pistols had been together since February, The Clash had only been practicing for four weeks before the show.
Guitarist/vocalist Joe Strummer had had extensive experience with his pub rock The 101'ers, but bassist Paul Simonon could barely play, relying on Mick Jones to tune his bass during the set. Also performing in the band were Keith Levene (later with Public Image Ltd) and Terry Chimes on drums.
The set included four songs:
"Ooh, Baby, Ooh (It's Not Over)"
The Black Swan (sometimes called "The Muddy Duck") eventually became Boardwalk. The owners have been trying to sell the place for years- not sure if it's open now.
