Sex Pistols create new songs for UK festival
The Sex Pistols have been crafting new tracks for the upcoming Isle of Wight festival. Other artists scheduled to perform at the three-day event include The Police, Kaiser Chiefs and Kate Nash.
“There's talk of new material,” drummer Paul Cook said in a recent statement. “The only problem is that it's a bit hard to work on anything as John (Lydon) and Steve (Jones) are in America and Glen (Matlock) and I are in the U.K., so it's a case of finding the time to get together.”
Although the songs will be their first new offerings in 30 years, the Sex Pistols definitely have had somewhat of a presence lately. Nevermind the Bollocks, the band’s most notable album, was re-released in a digital format last October. The band also revamped “Anarchy in the U.K.” and “Pretty Vacant” for Guitar Hero III. Not to mention the various adventures of John Lydon.
There has been talk of an new record, though at the moment it seems unlikely.
“We might not pull together an album but hopefully there will be some new stuff in time for the summer," Cook said.
