CLOSURE OF BEAUFORT MARKET, KING'S ROAD...

 

"That is a view of the southern side of the King’s Road taken from the island outside The Man In The Moon (the white building in the second pic attached) and the parade of shops which housed Johnson’s at 406 among others.

A very familiar view for those who haunted the King’s Road in the mid-70s" Paul Gorman {The Life and times of Malcolm McLaren}

Beaufort Market was on the opposite side of the road east from the Man In The Moon pub {white building}

"This would have been when JS was living in the World's End estate - The Man In The Moon was his local as it was many others such as Marianne Faithfull (who I saw in there often).

Johnson’s opened at 406 at the top of the parade in summer 1978 - that was another draw, as was Emperor of Wyoming in the same parade and of course Seditionaries around the corner." Paul Gorman

The photo of Joe Strummer is from 1985

The Big Audio Dynamite is from 1984.

So Mick Jones lived here in 1985...

 

There is a touching moment near the end of The Rise and Fall of The Clash. In a denoucement worthy of a romantic comedy, Strummer, having suddenly realized he was mistaken to trust Rhodes and that Mick Jones had been his true and honest mate all along, rushes to Jones’s house and finds his former bandmate waiting for a cab to the airport. They share a spliff, Strummer jumps in Jones’s cab, and together they fly to Nassau. Jones wouldn’t come back into the Clash, because he’d formed Big Audio Dynamite, but Strummer and Jones would collaborate on BAD’s second album No. 10, Upping St.

20 Soho Square, London...

 

 

Why was Joe Strummer outside 20, Soho Square on the 16th January 1981?

Suggestion is that Joe was visiting the CBS offices at 17-19 Soho Square to discuss the release of 'Hitsville' from the Sandinista LP {released on the 12th December 1980}

HYDE PARK FOOTBALL MATCH...

 

"We were recording at Marcus Music in Kensington - Radio Clash, Sean Flynn, Car Jammin'.

On 27th we went off on the 'Impossible Mission' European tour. Joe had run the marathon so was in pretty good shape.

One Sunday we went to Hyde Park and had a game of footer." The Baker...

 "As I remember, it was in the north-west corner of Hyde Park. I remember getting a parking space on the Bayswater Rd. It was the closest bit of park to where they all lived - Ladroke Grove, Westbourne Pk etc.

I'm sure someone will swear it was Regents Park though..." The Baker
