MATLOCK, PHANTOM & SLICK LIVE
Ray Morrissey, caught the band at Under The Bridge, Fulham Road, London, 15th August:
"A rare chance to see this great collection of musicians (not forgetting Stereophonics producer Jim Lowe on bass). The 75 minute set featured a mixture of new tracks written by Glen and classic covers. The band looked super cool on stage and Glen does a great job of getting the crowd to sing along. The sound has a rock ‘n’ roll rockabilly feel mainly due to Slim Jim's stand up drumming beat.
Setlist: Happy (Pharrell Williams) / Blank Generation (Richard Hell And The Voidoids) / Action Stations / God Save The Queen / Live Wire / Speak Too Soon / Sexy Beast / Chill / Dead End Street (Kinks) / Yes Siree / John I'm Only Dancing (guest Reeves Gabrels on guitar) / Rock This Town (Slim Jim Phantom on vocals) / Pretty Vacant.

Wendy's place in the affections of many a man was cemented a long time ago, but what do we know of her current work? What inspires her? What drew her to New York? How does she view her Transvision Vamp days?

She didn't disappoint. Delightful, chatty, with a real love of her music. Some say never meet your heroes. Well, they are wrong! Wendy James is rock and roll, and fabulous with it.

Wednesday 2nd July - Sunday 27th July 2014. Rockarchive collective / Punk aficionado Jon Savage (England's Dreaming). Under Jon's guidance Rockarchive have pulled together some of the world's best Punk images from both sides of the pond. This exhibition brings together work from photographers such as Sheila Rock, Roberta Bayley, Adrian Boot, Bob Gruen, Ray Stevenson and Jill Furmanovsky together for the first time in one truly Punk rock exhibit. The rich visual material with many never before seen photographs from the brief but incendiary Punk era has resulted in one of the most exciting exhibitions Rockarchive has ever produced. 'I Got You In My Camera - Punk 1976-1979' promises to be a must see for all Punk fans and collectors. During this exhibition Rockarchive will play host to many Punk themed evenings, from film screenings, book signings, guest appearances and performances. Be sure to keep an eye on our website for further details.
