....who's Glan Matlock...?
...those Janet Street Porter London Weekend Shows were ace....loved watching them on Sunday afternoons as a lad & would love to revisit them now ...
A total fucking helmet.
I think he'd left by the time of the Rock n Roll Swindle album and film leaving Maclaren to cut and paste him in. Wasn't Eddie Tenpole a Pistol as well? think he sand Who Killed Bambi.
That was my point...
that rock and roll swindle was shite. they did 1 lp, several good '45s' then had to record to pay off the advances. sid was talentless and they turned his bass right down live, and that whole junkie scene is sordid.
John Lydon comes out in support of Trump, Brexit and Nigel Farage
That's fcking sad. I'm, not sure what to think. I was 14 in 77 and the pistols were my heroes. And now Johnny Rotten supports Trump. What the fucking fuck.
John Lydon for understanding what anarchism is.
He's been on a Morrissey-esque slide into unmitigated cuntery for a while now so this comes as little surprise.
I do like PiL's 'Album' and the song Glen Matlock co-wrote for Dexys. Everything else any of them have done, meh.
Story's more than a year old, mind. And he's not exactly supporting Trump and Farage if you read it.
After reading Lonely Boy, it's got to be Steve Jones.
Lydon's always been a dick.
Yes he is.
My favourite bit is the moaning about the US "left wing media" lol
Seemed to just like Farage pissing off Geldof and says Trump is shit in most ways just likes that he's wound up the media. Calling them left wing is obviously silly, but doesn't seem out of character for him.
last year innit
How come no one got this in 3 years ?
It reads like clear support to me, toned down, but support nonetheless.
John Lydon in 'is a complete wanker' shocker!
Steve Jones, proper mester and inspiration to thousands to give it a go!
the dead one
I know, it's brilliant isn't it. Ok he didn't write it himself but it really captures him and I enjoyed it a lot more than either of Lydon's efforts.
However in terms of who's my favourite Pistol, I think these days I'd go for Glen Matlock, who's aged very well both for his coming to terms with it all and physically as well - I saw him out a couple of weeks ago at a pub in Maida Vale and my god he looks good for his age, total man crush!
Fair enough, not a fan of his anyway, just struck me as a bit of that tabloid spin in the article but he certainly gave them the ammo.
Hes outdone himself this time
what a cock
Matlock seems to be the only one emerging with any dignity. I saw some YouTube thing with Steve Jones taking a film crew around his old haunts and it was all very phwoar look at the tits on that kind of stuff. Actually Paul Cook seems an OK enough bloke. As for John Lydon, he seems to be suffering from that same thing that happened to Morrissey when Brits move to LA or whatever and then seem to want Britain to return to 1950. Sad.
What an absolute arse-head. I used to credit him with at least
having a bit of intelligence. Now look at the sad old prick.He had
a platform from which he could have attacked those responsible
for destroying the lives of millions of people in the U.K. Instead
he repeats the stupid lie that Corbyn is a racist. What a dick.
From earlier in the thread though, not the most dignified move:
Have you read Steve Jones' autobiography? It's clear he's had long-term issues around sex.
