Nevermind the History, Lets See Something New

Ahoy fellow followers of the Bob Ross Path. It's indeed good to be back. I've got my own electronic computing machine and now write to you from the comfort of the green lair. Which means now I can finally write these things half drunk and in my underwear. Lately the Sex Pistols have been in the news quite a bit, but not for any real music news. Nah, it's much easier to take the piss out of Billie Joe Armstrong.

Now I'm not a real fan of the Sex Pistols. They had some a couple good tunes and Rotten is a snazzy vocalist. But anymore they come off as sad and bitter has beens, the exact kind of rock dinosaurs they were put together to kill in the first place. it'd be stupid and revisionist to deny the Sex Pistols of their impact, if not for them the UK punk scene might have been a lot different.....well maybe not them per se, I should say if not for Malcolm McLaren, he provided the (ripped off from Richard Hell) fashion that we have all come to associate with punk rock. but in any case the Pistols did exist and did influence a lot of bands. Like a lot of bands of the era the Pistols did a single album then broke up. Fair enough, a lot of brilliant bands did this. But to still beat the dead horse of that album 20 something years later? I know Johnny can write new tunes, I own several Pil albums, but why do that? People want nostalgia and the Pistols are ready to deliver. the Damned have only 2 of their original members but they still put out new stuff every so often. The Toy Dolls have been around nearly as long as the Pistols and Olga still puts out ace tunes. The Addicts still have all their original members and manage to release every so often. is Johnny Rotten scared he can't match the supposed genius of Nevermind the Bollocks?

Being the angry men that they are, the Pistols didn't attend the rock hall induction of their band. Hell, I don't blame them. I wouldn't want to be in the stodgy room of aging hippies either. But trying to make some statement about it while previously attempting to cash in by selling songs to corporations? F**k off Johnny Rotten. You have no place slagging Green Day for ripping off your supposed ideals and what not. I'm not going to debate the overall sub par quality of Green Day, but I am saying Johnny Rotten really should look in the mirror before opening his mouth. 

green's song of the month this month is: The Toy Dolls' "sod the neighbors" for no other reason than I like it.

Greenmuse loves to hear from you, post a message below or send him an email at greenmuse@antimusic.com (he does get some rather strange emails from time to time... there was this one from a 14 punker girl who asked him if he wanted to...)
