“…Stunningly distinctive…pummeling…rip-roaring…Sensible would approve!”
– Jack Rabid, Big Takeover Magazine
On Tuesday, May 3, No Future: A Tribute To The Sex Pistols, the Clash, the Damned will be released by UK label Released Emotions, and distributed in the US by E1.
This is tribute to the three bands that pioneered the punk revolution in the late seventies, and are still influencing new bands to this day, includes cover versions provided by a varied selection of established UK indie and alternative acts from the last twenty years.
There are 18 tracks on the album, with 6 tracks each dedicated to the Pistols, the Clash and the Damned. All the bands were tasked with providing covers of a high standard. Expectations were high, and yet the artists managed to create something new & radically different.
The bands featured are The Sex Pistols Experience (UK’s top tribute to the band), Leatherface, Terry Edwards (Serious Drinking, Higsons, Tindersticks), Steve Drewett (Newtown Neurotics), Attila the Stockbroker, The Blaggers ITA, Bleach, Anhrefn, The Price, Red Letter Day, The Bolsheviks, Identity, Exit Condition, Robb Johnson and The Urchin String Quartet!
In light of the recent passing of legendary X-Ray Spex singer, Poly Styrene, this is a timely release, and shows that the urgent fire of the original punk movement burns as brightly as ever. Digital copies are available for review.
MP3: “Melody Lee” – Leatherface (originally by the Damned, cleared for posting)
