GUITARISTS and bassists from Bridgwater gathered in the town centre on Saturday, February 3 for a unique flash-mob tribute to a local rockstar.

The Cornhill came alive with music as a number of local musicians performed a rendition of 'Should I Stay or Should I Go?' by The Clash, in honour of the late Joe Strummer.

The Clash guitarist lived in the village of Broomfield, near Bridgwater, and played his final gig in Bridgwater - a fundraiser that helped establish the Engine Room, where the Clash Mob's organiser, Seed, is based.

Laura Hylton, Producer and Community Manager at Seed, said: "The Bridgwater guitar and Bass group came together on Saturday for another successful Clashmob, drawing a crowd for some punk rock in the Town Centre.

"We at Seed are so proud of what the Guitar and Bass group have achieved since it was first commissioned in June 2022, the group reflects the pride Bridgwater has in community coming together to create and celebrate.

"Keep an eye on our socials for video and images of the performance!"

John Diment, Artistic facilitator of the Bridgwater Guitar and Bass Group, said: "The group and these Clashmob performances are about community.

"It's about empowering people and trying to get the creativity out of people…We want to reflect the diversity of Bridgwater because Bridgewater is a smashing little place.

"It’s got so many languages, so many backgrounds, there's so much going on here.

"We want to include everyone we can, it's about community and connecting to one another."

The event marked International Clash Day, which SEED Sedgemoor endeavours to celebrate every year in Strummer's honour - however, this is the first time the event has taken on the new flash-mob style format.

Last year's event saw several songs by The Clash performed at various locations around the town centre, including Guns of Brixton, and Straight to Hell, as well as Bankrobber, on Fore Street.
