Sex Pistols sing new songs

first new material for 30 years

The Sex Pistols are set to record their first new tunes in 30 years after the success of their recent reunion tour, they have been inspired to head back to the recording studio according to www.wenn.com. The legendary punks returned to the live scene for a series of gigs in November last year. They were so excited about how well received they were by fans that it has convinced the band to start to create the new songs.

You can read a review of their show at the MEN Arena, Manchester here.

Johnny Rotten (John Lydon), Glen Matlock, Steve Jones, and Paul Cook hope to start recording their new material in the first half of this year.

This will mean the new songs could be showcased during their appearance at the Isle of Wight Festival in June.

Drummer Paul Cook said, "There's talk of new material. The only problem is that it's a bit hard to work on anything as John and Steve are in America and Glen and I are in the UK. So, it's a case of finding the time to get together."

Although a whole album looks unlikely, Paul suggested, that the band are indeed hoping to have the new material would be ready for their festival appearance, "We might not pull together an album but hopefully there will be some new stuff in time for the summer."

Whether the new songs will become as legendary as their classics "Anarchy in the UK", "God Save the Queen", "Pretty Vacant", and "Holidays in the Sun" remains to be seen. Very few bands have taken a long hiatus and reformed to make successful 'new' classic tunes.
