Hammersmith Palais, RIP

I suddenly want to listen to my Clash albums. Well, more than usual.

Hammersmith Palais - the legendary London music venue immortalised in song by The Clash - is to be demolished.

he decision to close the venue was taken by Hammersmith and Fulham councillors in a meeting on Monday.

The building is expected to be bulldozed to make way for office blocks by developers Parkway Properties. No date for the closure has been given.

The venue, which opened after World War I, was hailed in The Clash's (White Man) In Hammersmith Palais in 1978.
