In March 1978 The Clash began recording (White Man) In Hammersmith Palais (which, if you don’t know it – shame on you – can be found on YouTube here).

With its line up of “Dillinger and Leroy Smart, Delroy Wilson, your cool operator” the Hammersmith Palais had obviously changed a bit in the previous 37 years. In July 1941 you could have watched Noel Coward debuting Could You Please Oblige Us With a Bren Gun.
