Will Pfeifer of Rockford IL fills in as host while Jim and Patrick take a week off. Will goes through his book shelf and recommends some rock tomes, including books about the Sex Pistols and Elvis Presley and works by critics Lester Bangs and Chuck Klosterman.
Perhaps the single-most influential album was released 40 years ago. “Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols” came out on Oct. 28, 1977. It was the band’s only studio album, and it’s safe to say that rock music has never been the same.
Patrick got caught up on his reading. Here are his book reports on Steve Jones’ “Lonely Boy: Tales from a Sex Pistol” and Kim Gordon’s “Girl in a Band” (that band being Sonic Youth).
It’s Clash Week on Rockin’ the Suburbs! In honor of the 40th anniversary of the band’s debut album, we are taking a deep dive into the catalogue, starting with that first record (U.K. and U.S. versions).
Our interview with Chuck Prophet continues, as the roots rocker talks about meeting Chuck Berry and being inspired by another musical pioneer on daytime TV.
