THE PROFESSIONALS ARE BACK
MEET THE NEW RECRUIT
TOM SPENCER
TOM SPENCER

Welcome Tom

Tom introduces himself as the new Professional:

Who the fuck is Steve Jones? He's one of the reasons I play guitar. I was ten when 'Never Mind The Bollocks' came out. My dad bought it and hated it, so gave it to me. It was an early copy with a free single. It still has its £2.99 Woolworth sticker on it. Doubt if it's worth anything now, cos I played it to death on a shitty old gramophone system - weighing down the needle with pennies to stop the jumping.

I bought the Swindle singles as they came out.....and then The Professionals stuff. My point is, I'd love to see Jones up there playing it, but right now it's not an option. He's in LA and isn't tempted So, should the other three members not bother? Should I have turned the job down?.....bollocks to that! There are great songs that never got a proper live airing at the time.

Rehearsals have been great, hearing those songs come to life. There are three legendary original members involved. Cookie of course, then Ray McVeigh and Paul Myers.
Why me? I've spent years on the road, touring the world, with bands from Big Boy Tomato, The Lurkers, Sugarsnatch, The Yoyos, Ginger Wildheart, The Dogs D'Amour, The Loyalties and now The Men They Couldn't Hang. All those bands have turned me into......well....a Professional.

I'm not Steve Jones but it's an honour to front the band. So I'm going to give those songs the respect, energy and attitude they deserve.

As for Steve, Tom has told God Save The Sex Pistols that Steve's involvement cannot be ruled out completely. There is a possible scenario... watch this space.

The collection of Jordan (Pamela Rooke) is up for auction on 23rd June.
"The collection of Jordan (Pamela Rooke) – the ‘high priestess of Punk’, lots 221 to 237, charts her time spent working with Westwood and McLaren at 430 Kings Road, 1974 -1982. Her non-compromising personal style - with spiked tinted hair, cubist face paint, wearing provocative bondage or fetish gear - made her the living embodiment of Punk, more so than even Vivienne Westwood herself. Jordan states: ‘This collection represents the very essence of me and reflects a very rare occurrence - that of two parallel forces coming together to become something unique. I see it now, that these clothes and myself were meant for each other and because of this I regard them as dear old friends that are to be loved and admired. Never before have I contemplated parting with my 'old friends' and it has been a difficult decision for me to make but the overriding feeling is that after 40 years I feel I need them to see the light of day and be treasured by someone else’.

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.
