Flashback to Clashmob 2022

 ‘International Clash Day’ was started by KEXP, a radio station in Seattle USA. In celebration of the cultural contribution of lead singer and former Bridgwater resident Joe Strummer, Seed leads the celebration in Bridgwater where Joe Strummer was a local resident and there is a clear connection between his band’s ethos and the spirit of Bridgwater as a ‘a rebel town’. The performance will be recorded and shared on International Clash Day 7 Feb 2023. This event on 4th is a ‘Flash mob’ – a one off performance in Bridgwater town centre and every guitarist of any standard in Sedgemoor can join in playing seminal Clash songs.

On Saturday 5 February 2022, 30 local musicians from around Sedgemoor gathered round the Blake Statue at the CornHill in Bridgwater for a pop up performance of ‘Should I Stay or Should I Go’ as part of International Clash Day.

Artist John D Revelator and his band performed a half hour set, joined halfway through by our Clashmob participants for the Clash classic. The performance was very well received by a good audience, even on a cold February afternoon!

It was a great opportunity for members of the community to come together and enjoy some local talent right in the centre of the town. Check out the performance below:
