British punk group The Clash's ROCK THE CASBAH has been performed at a karaoke event to raise money for a charity named after the band's late singer Joe Strummer.

The 1982 hit was performed on Saturday (17JUL04) as part of a series of events at Castle House in Somerset, England - which is the headquarters of the STRUMMERVILLE charity.

Strummer - who died in 2002 from a heart attack - spent the last years of his life in Somerset, and considered Castle House one of his favourite buildings.

Strummer's friends Badly Drawn Boy, HAPPY MONDAYS star BEZ, actor Keith ALLEN and former Clash bandmate Mick Jones all attended the weekend music event.

Strummerville supports young musicians by providing rehearsal space and studio time to those unable to afford to hire facilities.
