For most people the last day of August is also the last day of summer, the last day of holidays. That’s the bad news. The good news is that Turn Up The Volume starts his holidays in the sun today at the hot French Riviera. Yeeeahhh! Much sun, much drinks, much delicious food. Prepare yourselves for the last summer live track of 2020.

Knockouts from the past…
26 November 2019
The SEX PISTOLS released their controversial debut single ‘ANARCHY IN THE U.K.‘,
one of the fiercest punk anthems ever, on 26 November 1976, 43 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 criticized 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.”

On 4 June 1976, four noisy youngsters called the SEX PISTOLS played the small stage
of the Lesser Free Trade Hall in Manchester. Despite thousands claiming they were in attendance, only a handful of people were there, but those that were, went on to form bands including The Smiths, Buzzcocks, Joy Division and The Fall. The rest is iconic history…

Never mind the critics, here’s the fury…
On 14 October 1977 the SEX PISTOLS released their fourth single ‘HOLIDAYS IN THE SUN’. A couple of weeks later, on 29 October, 42 years ago today a Belgian travel service took legal action against the band claiming the single’s sleeve infringed copyright of one of its brochures.
