PRETTY VACANT! An evening with Sex Pistol Glen Matlock!
"God Save The Queen!", "Anarchy In The UK!", "Pretty Vacant!" - Glen Matlock left the Sex Pistols 40 years ago but not before co writing these three eternal rock and roll classics.
An original member of the Sex Pistols he was replaced by Sid Vicious in early 1977. Within a year the Sex Pistols had limped to an end. Glen formed the Rich Kids with Midge Ure who went on to join Ultravox. He worked on Iggy Pop's Soldier album, collaborated with Blondie's Clem Burke in The International Swingers, recorded an album for the Creation label, had his own group The Philisteins, and played bass for one of his favourite groups The Faces on a reunion tour. Glen has of course rejoined the Pistols for all subsequent reunions.
Glen will perform two solo shows in New Zealand at the end of October almost 40 years to the day the Sex Pistols album Never Mind The Bollocks ws released. He will be performing songs he wrote for the Sex Pistols.
Geln says , "I'll be playing songs from all aspects of my chequered career acoustically and telling some stories. There will be some stories behind the songs, who I recorded them with, some funny tales, some astute, and some sad. But don't worry, it will be fun, I'm not a miserable old po faced git".
Presales start today with general onsale from Monday all at Ticketmaster.
