Hope and Anchor

A question for middle-aged London punks. Is the Hope and Anchor still in existence and hosting the same sort of bands? How about the Hammersmith Odeon, where I had the privilege of seeing Bob Dylan. But the high spot there was seeing Salome, with a complete breakdown of the sound system just after. They rolled a grand piano on stage and RJG held the show together in the face of true adversity. Don't know who I'm talking about? Can't say I'm surprised. A prize for the first to identify the band in question.
