Punk40, Sex Pistols - 5th September 1976, Chalet du Lac, Paris France

Well here it is - Sex Pistols gold - Chalet du Lac 1976. Everyone knew both nights were recorded but for 40 years only a very few select people have been able listen to the recording,

Hopefully the recording of the first night will be shared soon. But for now this recording will have to  titillate your ears.

I have created CD artwork to go with the recording which is available in the download for you all.

set list

 Anarchy in the UK
 I Wanna Be Me
 New York
Don't Give Me No Lip
Stepping Stone
 No Feelings
Pretty Vacant
 No Fun


Please note I believe this to be a mislabeled gig and I actually think its the second night in Paris from 5th September. 

On release it has been billed as the first night.

 My reasoning is this - from the God save the Sex Pistols site, in an interview with someone who was at both gigs it has been stated that the second gig was shorter in length due to the band having to catch a plane. 
The set list posted on the GSTSP site states that Flowers was played at the start and a 2 track encore (Did You No Wrong and Anarchy) at the end. Yet all 3 of these tracks are missing from this recording. The supplier of this recording states it is the complete gig (and there's no reason to doubt that claim) - therefore logically this must be the shorter second gig on the 5th.

If anyone can categorically clear this up, without any doubt please get in touch.

Whatever the truth is this is still a fantastic recording - very, very enjoyable to listen to.

A massive thank you must go to Partners in Crime from France, for sharing this with all of us - it's very much welcomed and appreciated.

Eddie & the Hot Rods, 10th September 2016, Undercover Festival, Brighton

Eddie and the Hot Rods played a blinding performance at the Undercover Festival this year. In fact the whole weekend amazing. Apart from one band in particular all the artists turned up and delivered a quality professional performance. The atmosphere was so friendly and I would urge everyone to put the Undercover Festival on their list of things to do next year.

Anyway here's Eddie and the Hot Rods set.

This comes with artwork created by myself.
