FRIDAY 13TH OCTOBER

The Bungalow are proud to announce that original Sex Pistols member Glen Matlock is due to perform in the independent venue on Friday 13th October and tickets are available directly from the Venue now!

Singer Songwriter and Punk Pioneer, forever-changing rock 'n' roll history as chief songwriter & original bass player for Sex Pistols, the evolving path walked by Glen Matlock remains unbound by genre, geography & task.

His contribution to the Sex Pistols, and thus culture itself, is well documented. Penning the anthem Pretty Vacant, arguably the most famous punk song ever, Glen wrote the music to all the Sex Pistols classics, including Anarchy In The UK and God Save The Queen, creating the benchmarks for any aspiring rock band who followed in their wake. Periodic Sex Pistols reunions have allowed the world the chance to see Glen reaffirm his rightful position as the cornerstone of the Pistols.

The Sex Pistols, however, represent only a fraction of Glen's legacy. His next band, the Rich Kids, put out one of the most influential albums of the late 70s, Ghosts Of Princes In Towers, packed full of rock ‘n’ pop gems. Working with Iggy Pop, (who recorded Glen’s song Ambition), during the 80s kept him sharp and sought-after with a body of work during this period giving rise to releases by bands such as The Spectres and Hot Club.

In the 1990s Glen emerged as a solo force to be reckoned with. His album ‘Who’s he Think he is When he’s at Home?’ recorded for Creation Records, home of Oasis, was a full-on guitar album, blistering in its intensity, taking everyone by surprise. Not content to kick up his heels, the reinvention continued with a series of fine albums by his band project, The Philistines. Invigorated in the wake of the Pistols re-emergence, Glen continued to record songs to rival those on Never Mind The Bollocks for swagger and craft. ‘Open Mind’, ‘On Something’ & ‘Born Running’ were albums showcasing the full spectrum of Glen’s prowess. Pile drivers rubbed shoulders with reflective refrains & personal lyrics. One solo highlight, ‘Hey Mister’, was seized upon by BBC radio.

With support from Straw Dogs, crowds can expect a jam packed night of punk in The Bungalow!
