Glen Matlock


Singer songwriter and bona fide punk pioneer,  original bassist and chief songwriter with the legendary Sex Pistols!’ Glen’s contribution to the Sex Pistols, and thus culture itself, is well documented. Penning the anthem Pretty Vacant, arguably the most famous punk song ever, Glen wrote the music to all the Sex Pistols classics, including Anarchy In The UK and God Save The Queen. The Sex Pistols, however, represent only a fraction of Glen's legacy. His next band, the Rich Kids with Midge Ure and Rusty Egan, put out one of the most influential albums of the late 70s, Ghosts Of Princes In Towers, packed full of rock ’n’ pop gems. Working with Iggy Pop, (who recorded Glen’s song Ambition), during the 80s kept him sharp and sought-after with a body of work during this period giving rise to releases by bands such as The Spectres and Hot Club.
