Albums Of The Week: Glen Matlock | Consequences Coming

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE:Sex Pistols bassist and Rock Hall Of Fame inductee Glen Matlock has crafted a timely and politically pertinent new rock album that’s perfectly in tune with the chaos of our times.

Backed up by a collection of legendary players, (in)famous cohorts, and rock royalty including the likes of Earl Slick and Clem Burke, Matlock has never sounded better. And his new solo album Consequences Coming proves once again that he is undeniably one of the greatest songwriters of his (or any) generation.

As the original bassist and songwriter of The Sex Pistols, Matlock is responsible for co-penning some of history’s most iconic songs, including Anarchy In The UK, God Save The Queen and Pretty Vacant. After his time with The Sex Pistols, Matlock went on to form several well-regarded bands including Rich Kids with Midge Ure. He has collaborated with such artists as Iggy Pop and Primal Scream, and is also a highly in-demand player, performing with the likes of the legendary, reformed Faces. Most recently, Matlock signed on as the touring bassist for legendary punk / new wave band Blondie.

“The album was written and recorded in Britain over the last 18 months or so with a posse of seasoned but en point performers,” says Matlock. “All done during the debacle that is Brexit and the rise and fall of the turgid Trump episode in the U.S. These songs reflect my take on the whole sorry mess that has ensued. The tunes are pretty catchy too… ”
