The Sex Pistols and The Clash led the British punk rock revolution in the steamy summer of 1976 .Today it's on Talbot Road, filled with vinyl and CDs, its walls and ceiling adorned with posters featuring The Clash, Sex Pistols and others.Behind NO.TOM there's a tiny 19th century cottage where the Sex Pistols once lived.I was here to find the spot where The Clash posed for a photograph that became an iconic image adorning their first album.My favorite band, often called "the only band that matters," once stood here on the cusp of fame, but today the spot seems to embody the opposite of punk's anti-materialistic message.The Clash played their fifth-ever show here in September 1976 . The Pistols, The Damned, The Ramones and Patti Smith all played here too. Hope and Anchor also hosted pre-punk bands playing what was called pub rock, including a group led by Joe Strummer, the 101ers.It's one of the oldest cinemas in the U.K. The Clash, Sex Pistols and Buzzcocks played together there on the night Aug. 29, 1976 .
