God Save the Queen: The World's Most Collectible Single:
The Tale of the Sex Pistols' Infamous Anthem

By Dominic Pedler

Released 15 Sep 2015 (Red Planet)
Available to pre-order

19th May

PUBLIC IMAGE LTD
WILL RELEASE THE ALBUM
‘WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW…’
ON 4TH SEPTEMBER
AHEAD OF A
23-DATE UK/EUROPE TOUR THAT KICKS OFF ON
18th SEPTEMBER

Public Image Ltd (PiL) announce the release of their 10th studio album ‘What The World Needs Now…’ on 4th September 2015. The 11-track album follows the huge critical success of 2012’s ‘This is PiL’, the band’s first album in 17 years. Album opener and lead single ‘Double Trouble’ sees the band launching into a statement of intent that will be released on 21st August. The 10” vinyl version will be backed by ‘Bettie Page’ and also come with additional nonalbum bonus track ‘Turkey Tits’. Commenting on the new album, John Lydon says, “Buy now while stocks last.” Widely regarded as one of the most innovative and influential bands of all time, PiL’s music and vision earned them 5 UK Top 20 singles and 5 UK Top 20 albums. With a shifting line-up and unique sound, John Lydon guided the band from their debut album ‘First Issue’ in 1978 through to 1992’s ‘That What Is Not’. After a 17 year hiatus, Lydon reactivated PiL in 2009 by taking them back on the road worldwide. Last year the band returned to Steve Winwood’s Wincraft studio in the Cotswolds’ to record the new album. Released on 4th September, ‘What The World Needs Now…’ precedes the start of their 23-date UK/Europe tour, which kicks off in Glasgow on 18th September and follows on from last year’s one-off sold-out show at London’s Indigo at the 02. The UK/Europe tour will be followed by North America dates. UK/Europe Dates below. Tickets go on general sale at 9am Thursday 21st May. Preceded by pre-sale at 9am on Tuesday 19th and Wednesday 20th May. See www.pilofficial.com for ticket links. ‘What The World Needs Now…’ is self-funded by PiL and will be released on PiL’s own label ‘PiL Official’ via Cargo UK Distribution.

Octavio Cohen Escali passed away 7th April.
He was Sid's 'baby sitter' during the Parisian trip in 1978, and the guy who tried to teach Sid how to play Eddie Cochran and Gene Vincent songs. He was the bass player for JohnnyThunders when the Living Dead play Le Gibus Club in Paris. He also played some gigs with the New York Dolls in NYC in 1976.

On ITV's Dickinsons Real Deal yesterday, a FAKE / BOOTLEG God Save The Queen A & M (the 2002 one wirh yellowy labels) was discussed along with a collection of genuine Beatles Red A Label promos. Thankfully the dealer didn`t offer enough, and they went to auction, the GSTQ got just £38. The seller was really dubious where and when he bought it. I bet! Watch it on the usual catch up platforms.

QA LIVE: JOHN LYDON AT THE 100 CLUB SUNDAY 26 APRIL
Buy tickets: http://www.wegottickets.com/100club/event/
Legendary Sex Pistols and Public Image Ltd (PiL) front man and lyricist Mr John Rotten Lydon will return to 100 Club for the first time in nearly two decades. The week before James Callaghan became Prime Minister and The Brotherhood of Man won the Eurovision Song Contest a handful of people witnessed the performance of a 20-year-old singer who within months would truly shake Britain out of its lethargy. Johnny Rotten and the Sex Pistols appeared in the first of a series of infamous gigs at the 100 Club in Oxford Street and by the end of 1976 had become one of the most revered bands of all time. Nearly 40 years later John Lydon returns to the 100 Club for an intimate conversation about his extraordinary life. He shares his experiences from the Pistols to PiL, from his beginnings as a sickly child of immigrant Irish parents, growing up in post-war London, to his present status as vibrant, alternative national hero and a true legend. But the actual agenda for this unique event won't be known until the night because the questions are chosen by the live audience. "Who needs Question Time!" John's autobiography Anger Is An Energy: My Life Uncensored - a Sunday Times Bestseller is available in paperback from May 7th. £25 + BF includes "Limited Edition Collector's Paperback"
USA PUBLICATION
Anger Is An Energy: My Life Uncensored
Published in North America on April 28th via Dey Street publishers
