Regardless of what you may have read in the press, Dave Parsons and Ian Whitewood, together with new bass player Zee, and new singer Scazz, are carrying on under the name SHAM69 - more news as it comes in.
Sham69 will be playing the Concrete Jungle festival. The band, who are currently putting the finishing touches to their new album which will be released later in the Summer, are currently in demand in Europe and the States. It has been of course an active time for the band since the departure of JP, however in keeping with the NEW 'fans first' policy the band are really excited about the future. The decision to do The Concrete Jungle festival was on the grounds of wanting to get out there and play which, as many people know, was one of the major concerns of the band late last year.

DUANE PETERS got in a car accident a couple of weeks ago (collapse lung etc) and the band had to cancel the East Coast, Mid-West dates, but the West Coast, North West dates are still on, including their appearance at SXSW. DIE HUNNS' new album "Live Fast Die Hunns" is coming March 27th. This is the band's second studio album, finally rescued from the safe where it was locked up for more than a year! A true punk album recorded months before 'Your Rot Me' (2006 - Volcom), 'Live Fast' is the expected follow up to 'Long Legs Die Hunns' (2004 - Disaster), and it is another "catchy, dirty, ugly-as-hell" product of Duane and Corey's musical collaboration. And yes, she sings a lot on the album! 'Live Fast Die Hunns' includes 7 original songs never recorded before, plus 5 songs such as 'You Want The Truth', 'Back In Black' and 'Ain't It A Shame' which were limited releases, now available together for the first time on this album, where they belong. "A total of 12 killer tracks, on an album that rocks out," says Duane. This missing link in Die Hunns' discography also features great cover art by graphic designer Tom D. Kline. The release is a Disaster world exclusive on CD, and a must-have for fans of 'The Master of Disaster' and his long-legged partner in rock'n'roll crime.

Chaos! Ex Pistols' Secret History – the Dave Goodman Story Part One On DVD. Release Date: 05. March 2007. DVD extras include additional interview material, plus audio of many of those infamous Goodman produced “Ex Pistols” songs.
“Plenty of genuine contributors who were there in the Pistols formative years. Ray Stevenson himself, Bob Gruen, Paul Gorman, Terry Chimes (who sheds light on the birth of The Clash), Andy Blade and Dee Generate (who recall their night at John Rotten's house), PIL drummer Jim Walker (“I've seen hell”), broadcaster Tony “So It Goes” Wilson, Don Letts, Roadent, Marco Pirroni, and others. Plus fresh insight on Goodman's input from Glen Matlock, who doesn't dodge the Goodman/bootleg issue. In fact, fresh insight is the key to the film's success. What you are watching is NEW. It's tightly edited, neatly presented, fast moving, entertaining, and above all informative. Whether learning from Dave himself why he put sound effects on his Pistols demos, or listening to Ray Stevenson discuss both his own and his late brother, Nils', involvement, it all adds up to an engaging and enthralling 100 minutes.
A valiant, heartfelt film that deserves a place on any Sex Pistols fan's shelf”. (from Sex-Pistols.net)

On Thursday 15th February, BBC Producer Mickey Bradley of the UNDERTONES went back to a presenting role with this Radio Ulster programme. It is part of a new weekly series dedicated to punk rock classics. Playing everything from the New York punk of The Ramones and The Heartbreakers through to the London scene of the Sex Pistols and The Clash, to the one hit wonders and the influential icons of the genre.
Mickey says: "This programme will be an unashamed wallow in the best punk records of 1977, before and beyond. Thirty years after they played, the influences and effect of bands like the Clash, Buzzcocks and the Sex Pistols are more widely felt than they were at the time."

THE JAM are to reform and tour but without frontman Paul Weller! Bassist Bruce Foxton and drummer Rick Buckler have not toured together in 25 years but will play a 20-date tour from 2 May, beginning in Oxford. The new tour will feature a mix of old hits and new material.
Paul Weller, who has had a successful solo career, has been invited to join the tour but has not commented.
Foxton said: "This tour is deliberately intimate and something of a warm-up to our own material to launch later. The plan is for us to get close to the fans, have some fun and then follow with a larger tour in the autumn."
Buckler added: "Paul is always welcome to join us for the reunion, but until then, we've got a tour and a new album to do!"
The tour will take in venues across the UK such as Aberdeen, Nottingham, Liverpool and Guildford, before ending in Portsmouth on 27 May.
The album is planned for release in the autumn.

THE STOOGES – not so much a band but a force of nature. In this month’s MOJO Magazine, MOJO spends 4 months tracking the remarkable comeback of America’s greatest and gnarliest rock ‘n’ roll band. Fear, loathing and heroin killed them first time round. Thirty three years later, they’re back to claim what is rightfully theirs. In a host of exclusive interviews and eye-popping pictures, witness the likes of Alice Cooper and Bobby Gillespie reduced to mere quivering fan-boys.
