WENDY JAMES INTERVIEW

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?

"Ask Wendy yourself", suggested Glen. So, I took a deep breath and did just that.

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.

Don't Bin Tin Pan Alley
London's Denmark Street is under imminent threat of redevelopment.
Des Hoskins has been in touch with the following:
"Despite assurances to the contrary by developers Orms, it is clear that a modern redevelopment will destroy the c17th character, history and legacy of this small street in London's west end. A street that has a major part in english rock n' roll history and none more so than in the story of Sex Pistols and their residence at number 6. Enterprise (rehearsal) Studios, music venue 12 Bar Club, the street's numerous guitar and music shops and numerous other businesses face certain demise under current plans. Please join and share this petition to increase the pressure upon Camden Council and English Heritage to preserve the heritage of this precious community. The awareness and support of the global Sex Pistols audience would undoubtedly support this cause. This isn't just about music history. It's about music's present and future. Thank you."

Mark has provided the following background information: "It was actually my PhD which I then turned into a book.

Never Mind The Demos Vinyl LP. Yet another fake? Yes. As expected Sod In Heaven is the YouTube mash-up. Anarchy & Vacant are the Guitar Hero versions. Other demos are from official releases. Worthless. Buy it if you must but prepared to be disappointed. The "sleeve" is a fold-around type which are becoming more common in the bootleg world. Not sure they qualify as sleeves. Cheap. Even the labels are rubbish.

"Unreleased" NMTB & Swindle Mixes?
Unreleased NMTB & Swindle Mixes

The appearance in 2014 on the internet of recordings claiming to be unreleased mixes of Never Mind The Bollocks and The Great Rock 'N' Roll Swindle sessions naturally caused much excitement amongst aficionados.

So GSTSPs has got on the case.
Are they too good to be true?
Check out our special feature.

4th March
Some interesting recordings have been turning up on the web recently.
First, more 7" vinyl from Greece.
The latest claims to be from Westfield College, London, 21st November 1975!
Don't Give Me No Lip Child / New York. Limited to 100 copies.
Is it what it says it is? I've no idea but it seems unlikely a recording was made so early in the band's career. If it had, why would it end up in the hands of a bootlegger in Greece 40 years later? Is someone brave enough to splash out? Not me!

Of more interest are the Unreleased NMTB & Swindle Mixes.
These appear to have surfaced earlier this year and are now apparently making the rounds via the murkier corners of the internet. The mixes are said by those who have heard them to be different to all those currently/previously available.
The 18 mixes are as follows:
Anarchy In The UK (Rejected Wessex Overdubs) / Belsen Vossa Gassa (Backing Vocal Live Mix) / The Great Rock 'N' Roll Swindle (Guitar & BV Take) / C'mon Everybody (Guitar Overdub mix) / Something Else (Guitar Overdub Mix) / Friggin' In The Riggin' (Guitar Mix) / Rock Around The Clock (Piano Mix) / EMI (Wessex Studio) / No One Is Innocent (Backing Vox Mix) / Submission (Wessex Studio) / Holidays In The Sun (Wessex Studio) / My Way (Steve Jones Mix) / Lonely Boy (Overdub Mix) / Body (Wessex Studio) / No Feelings (Wessex Studio) / Substitute (overdub Mix) / No Lip (Overdub Mix) / Stepping Stone (Overdub Mix). [thanks Matt & Glyn for info]
Note: GSTSPs does not condone the manufacture or distribution of bootlegs. Please don't ask. Thanks.
