However GLEN MATLOCK and his band will still be playing;

This Thursday the 29th November, the Punk Rock icon Glen Matlock will be performing live at The Thunderbolt. Matlock will perform alongside Neal X ( Sigue Sigue Sputnik & Marc Almond) , Jim Lowe and Chris Musto.

Being the youngest Sex Pistol at only 16, Glen Matlock joined the band and co-wrote most of ‘Never Mind The Bollocks.’ The iconic album is known for including the hits, ‘Pretty Vacant’, ‘Anarchy In The UK’ & ‘God Save The Queen’. In true punk fashion, he left amidst controversy and spitting feuds. However, we’d expect nothing less from the band who spawned the punk movement.

Glen Matlock has played, performed and written with many greats from decades of music including Iggy Pop, Ronnie Wood, The Dammed, Primal Scream, Mick Jones, Midge Ure, Gary Kemp, Wendy James as well as contemporaries from the punk scene Rusty Egan, Mike Peters, Tom Robinson & Kirk Brandon.

2018 sees the release of his long awaited solo album, ‘Good To Go’, which was released on 21st September. ‘Good To Go,’ features long-time friends and recording comrades Earl Slick & Slim Jim Phantom (Stray Cats.) Glen offers an album that’s well-travelled, worldly wise & soul searching. In addition, ‘Good To Go,’ brings us a whole range of human experience and emotion that many artists strive for, but rarely attain!

EMILY BREEZE: Longtime cult heroine of Bristol’s underground music scene Emily Breeze, former frontwoman of psychedelic post-punk outfit Candy Darling, scales new heights with her remarkable solo album.“Rituals”!

Lead single “Limousines” combines acerbic lyrics and to-die-for melodies with lush production by Bristol luminary Stew Jackson (writer producer for Massive Attack, who has also worked with Tom Waits, Patti Smith and Nick Cave). Breeze and her band – Rob Norbury (guitar), Andy Sutor (drums), Duncan Fleming (organ) and Graham Dalzell (bass) – conjure vast lonely cityscapes reminiscent of Cigarettes After Sex and a woozy glamour!

“Emily Breeze is a bona fide star. Her intense musical vision is a jaw dropping experience” (Louder Than War)

“A Lou Reed, Trent Reznor Hybrid” (The NME)

“Rebel music, the lovechild of P.J Harvey and Johnny Cash” (The Sunday Times)

Doors Open: 7.30pm Admission: £18 on the Door
