The Ex-Pistols: The Swindle Continues



I remember back in the middle eighties when the record racks were all of a sudden flush with semi-legit Sex Pistols records. For a band with one album the Sex Pistols section in Records on Wheels was fat with product. Obviously a lawsuit had been lost somewhere.




Early Sex Pistols producer Dave Goodman,  discussed previously HERE and HERE, is clealry behind this dog's breakfast which includes his early demo recordings of the real Pistols (Glen Matlock era) from 1976 plus a side of of oddities by his studio-created 'group', The Ex-Pistols. (Check out this documentary about Goodman, on You Tube in its entirety:)

  6. This is a must have for me. For years I had the 12" single of Land Of Hope & Glory and loved it and oft wondered if there was anything else by The Ex's out there. Now I've found some.

  9. A great soundalike band. But Here We Go Again and Silly Thing (Along with Lonely Boy and Black Leather) are Steve Jones/Paul Cook semi-legitimate recordings and not the Dave Goodman Ex-Pistols, unless they rerecorded these, which I'm not so sure they did.

  10. Yeah Cook and Jones are shadow members of the band...
