It’s official: punk is dead

“Sex Pistols Residuals” license Mediacom Toy Corporation to produce little Sex Pistols figurines. (Via Tokyo Times).

From best punk album of all time to children’s playthings is the final indignity. I think I’m off to become an ex-New Romantic instead.

Buy "Calling For The Moon", my debut album of songs I wrote while living in Thailand, India, Turkey. (Only £2, on Bandcamp.)

Wot, no little Glen to play with! It’s a (rock ‘n’ roll) swindle!

I think I’d put ‘The Clash’ ahead of ‘Never Mind The Bollocks’ in the best punk album list – Garageland, 48 hours, Janie Jones, London’s Burning, I’m so bored…, Deny, Career Opportunities. What a great record.

It’s pretty appropriate that Matlock isn’t there, i reckon, as Sid was the plastic punk and Matlock the bloke who wrote the tunes.

But it is a rock’n’roll swindle. Though if a Japanese reader bought some and sent them to me, I’d be ever so grateful ….
