The 100 Club has been a music venue since 1942. During the second world war it was known as Feldmans Club and the fact that it was in a basement made it a very effective bomb shelter and hence very popular. The club used this in advertising, saying 'Forget the Doodle bug-Come and Jitterbug-At the Feldman Club'. The club has hosted jazz, blues, skiffle, rock, reggae and punk featuring such well known names as Muddy Waters, B.B.King, Bo Diddley, Eric Clapton, Oasis, Paul Weller, Suede, Muse, the Who, the Kinks and the Rolling Stones. On Monday 20th and Tuesday 21st September 1976 it held the first ever Punk festival. The Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Damned, Siouxsie & The Banshees, Buzzcocks, the Vibrators and Subway Sect appeared. No one outside of a select few had heard of any of the them and all of them were unsigned.
