7-Inch History – The Anti-Christ And The SEX PISTOLS This Day In 1976

Great 7″ singles from the past

26 November 2022

The SEX PISTOLS released their controversial debut single ‘ANARCHY IN THE U.K.‘,
one of the fiercest punk anthems ever, on 26 November 1976, 46 years ago today.

It was originally issued in a plain black sleeve and peaked at #38 on the UK Singles
Chart although it was either ignored or negatively received by the music press.

Their label EMI dropped the band a few months later, in January 1977.

Their manager at the time, the late Malcolm McLaren said the song was
“a call to arms to the kids who believe that rock and roll was taken away from
them. It’s a statement of self rule, of ultimate independence.”

Here’s the American has been-antichrist and Trump voter Johnny Bloody Rotten.

Oh I am an anti-Christ
And I am an anarchist
Don’t know what I want
But I know how to get it
I want to destroy your passion boy
‘Cause I, I want to be, anarchy
In this fuckin’ city

MEMES – Scottish Noise Tandem Unleashed New Funk-Punk Ripsnorter ‘LEADER’

Daily electricity to load your batteries

4 November 2022

Who: A noisy Glasgow duo (cousins) called John and Paul – not that John and Paul, obviously. And as band name John Paul II would be ridiculous, they called themselves Memes, and hit the scene in 2019, and have been twisting heads ever since

New single: LEADER

After their eponymous bonkers debut EP (2020) followed by some staggering singles,
the high-decibels tandem nail it with another sucker punch. Leader is a funk-punk riff ripsnorter that kicks forth and back before a freakish guitar outbreak slashes and
trashes its way to the end.

About time for indie-label leaders to leave their desks
and go and see/hear this fuzz and buzz couple.

Watch out for the pigman,
he looks like a meme in disguise…

Soulman BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN Covers Late Soulman BEN E. KING

3 November 2022

Living legend BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN canned a new album of covers celebrating
the Sweet Sounds Of Soul Music. It’s named ONLY THE STRONG SURVIVE and
lands on 11 November. Pre-order info here.

Springsteen: “I wanted to make an album where I just sang. And what better music to work with than the great American songbook of the Sixties and Seventies? I’ve taken my inspiration from Levi Stubbs, David Ruffin, Jimmy Ruffin, the Iceman Jerry Butler, Diana Ross, Dobie Gray and Scott Walker, among many others. I’ve tried to do justice to them all—and to the fabulous writers of this glorious music. My goal is for the modern audience to experience its beauty and joy, just as I have since I first heard it. I hope you love listening to it as much as I loved making it.”

Here’s Springsteen’s version of Ben E. King‘s (1938-2015) hit

Glorious performance.
