The iconic guitarist, (The Clash, PiL) composer, producer and artist Keith Levene has announced his “LoNDoN 1976 Project” which celebrates the spirit and ethos of the British punk rock movement, on its upcoming 40th anniversary. The British Punk movement was infused with visual art merging with music and performance art. There was never a more diverse and creative energy erupting in the UK.

“In 1976 I was a teenaged guitarist/artist who was intimately involved with the leaders on the emerging punk then post punk scene: the Clash, Sex Pistols and Public Image, Ltd. (“PiL”).  I co-founded the Clash and collaborated with the Pistols’ front man to form PiL. Many people have advised me that these three bands influenced countless other musicians and artists all over the world down through the years,” states Levene.

LoNDoN 1976 involves various events including an online gallery installation experience which will premier on January 1, 2016 on Levene’s website 

Additionally, Levene will make a very rare public performance at his “LoNDon 1976” show in Manchester this November where his original art will be displayed and he will perform live music. A conversation session is also planned to include a reading from Levene’s book “I was a Teenage Guitarist for the Clash!” regarding his experiences in London 1976.

What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
