Take The 5th: Honouring The Clash, Rocking the Marrsbah, Forever Relevant
In case you wondered, “Take the 5th” take their name from the title given by The Clash to their 2nd US tour of 1979. What you get are fistfuls of songs by The Clash, performed with power and conviction. There is no attempt to impersonate, what would be the point of that? The Clash did it right first time.
The music of The Clash is a unique blend of rock and reggae, and the song are as relevant in today’s World, as they were when they were written.
Take The 5th are all originally from Worcestershire, and they have been gigging for 20 years, but first and foremost they are fans of The Clash, whose music deserves to be heard live and loud, any day, every town.
Officially, the band retired in 2010, although they have been doing a couple of special shows each year since then, including memorable sell out shows at the Marrs Bar. See you soon then, as we ‘Rock the Marrsbah’ at the best home town gig one more time, on Friday 29th December 2023, and you’ll still have the long bank holiday weekend to recover!
