JOHN LYDON has hit out at troubled rocker Pete Doherty´s substance abuse and tabloid domination - slamming the singer as a joke. Lydon accepts the appeal of publicity but urges the Babyshambles frontman to curb his wild ways to salvage his IQ. He says, “Every season there's a new one. Come on, he's just trying to do whatever he's trying to do and they are paying him well and keeping him in all the gossip magazines. He's kind of got himself caught in his own trap and the danger there is becoming a parody. Honestly, have a look at Ozzy Osbourne. Is that in your future? Rich and dumb as a doorbell - I'd rather be poor and bright.”

Bei der Info zu der DVD „THE PUNK ROCK MOVIE“, die letzte Woche erschienen ist, handelt es sich um einen „klassischen Fehlerteufel“, da der Bonus-Anteil mit voellig anderem Material bestueckt ist. Und zwar zeigt es ein gut 30-Minuten-Interview mit Johnny Rotten, das Peter Clifton 1983 in Sydney fuehrte. Clifton hat uebrigens den Film 1978 in seinem kleinen Studio in Notting Hill Gate produziert. Ausserdem gibt es noch einen Sektion „Peter Clifton´s Commentary“.
„This Widescreen Special Edition DVD is, without doubt, producer Peter Clifton's baby. It is certainly worth getting, but the definitive, DON LETTS version, still eludes us.”

SEX PISTOLS - Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Fall-Out!
Glen Matlock (The Independent on last Sunday): “Its nothing to do with the bands - it's all to do with business. When I first heard about it I was quite excited... but then I found I was going to have to pay thousands of pounds to take my kids. It's just a big corporate event, a bunch of Herberts in suits... just a money-making opportunity for multi-million shysters.”
Steve Jones (on Indie 103.1 Opened his Friday programme (24th Feb) by singing: “We're not going/To the museum/You can shove it/You can have it.”
Statement from John Lydon issued by johnlydon.com: “Next to the SEX PISTOLS rock and roll and that hall of fame is a piss stain. Your museum. Urine in wine. Were not your monkey and so what? Fame at $25,000 if we paid for a table or $15,000 to squeak up in the gallery, goes to a non-profit organization selling us a load of old famous. Congradulations. If you voted for us, I hope you noted your reasons. Your anonymous as judges. but your still music industry people. Were not coming. Your not paying attention. Outside the shit-stem is a real SEX PISTOL.”
PS: Auf ihrer Website veroeffentlichten die Sex Pistols einen offenen Brief, bei dem sie recht drastisch ihre Abneigung gegenueber der Rock-Institution aeussern. Siehe unten:

Fxxx Off! To The Rock'n'Roll Of Fame from the SEX PISTOLS!

! CHARGE - “Perfection Plus”! CD out this month on “Cherry Red Records”. Formed in the squat punk communities of London in the late 70s, Charge, led by the inimitable Stu P Idiot, stood out from the crowd by incorporating elements of sexual deviance, high camp, glam and baroque punk, alongside an engaging and often surreal sense of humour. They were one of London’s best live acts of the period, cultivating an impressive fanbase, and were especially popular in mainland Europe where they regularly toured. This release sees them immortalised on CD for the first time, featuring all their studio recordings for the “Kamera Label”, including the much cherished album “Perfection”, and three Independent Top 10 hits, notably the hugely amusing “Fashion”. The deluxe package also features the band’s extremely rare debut single “King’s Cross” for the Test Pressing imprint. It was compiled as a tribute to the late vocalist with contributions from the musicians and friends who knew him, who have also provided exclusive photos and memorabilia.
