LONDON (AP) — The Sex Pistols and The Clash led the British punk rock revolution in the steamy summer of 1976.
London is marking 40 years since that summer with a series of events, gigs and exhibits this year.
The Hope & Anchor has a lovely ground-floor pub with a small theater space upstairs and music venue in the basement.
The basement¿s roster has included The Jam, The Ramones, The Police, The Stranglers, XTC, U2, The Cure, Joy Division and The Pogues.
In Chelsea, at 430 King's Road, a giant "SEX" sign once hung outside a shop of the same name shared by Mc Laren, the Pistols' manager, and designer Vivienne Westwood.
Westwood still runs a boutique here called Worlds End. Today this thriving collection of bars, restaurants, shops and stalls is overrun with shoppers perusing all types of food and fashion, from espresso to T-shirts bearing the Union Jack.
The Sex Pistols played here in May 1976 and the venue hosted a punk festival in the fall of '76.
In January 2016, '70s bands including 999, The Members, UK Subs and Discharge played here as part of a punk series.

I was here to find the spot where The Clash posed for a photograph that became an iconic image adorning their first album.
