My Life Soundtrack: Sex Pistols’ Glen Matlock


I remember hearing that

Big Bopper – “Purple people meet a magician”

“When I was about four or five, my uncle gave me the old one [records]. He was a bit of a toy kid, so he was Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Earl Bostick, but what I really liked was the Big Bopper. There are accelerated poems and Big Bopper with his big voice: “There was one, there were two, three purple people ate …“Even though they’re stupid songs, it’s somehow shaky. With 78-inch old records, you put a lot of shellac on them, very thick plastics that crumble if you don’t treat them properly. It’s a bit of a firecracker.” If you could wear it, fly away and take your head off, you would go and stand on the other side of the room. At that time, there was something that endangered my musical taste. ”

The first song I fell in love with

Kinks – “You really got me”

“I remember buying it from my own pocket at a washing machine shop in Harlesden, north-west London. There was no record store, but you could go ahead and buy the Top 20, whose grid lockers had table position numbers written on them; meanwhile, moms and dads were queuing up that week to pay for TV or radio rentals. It was a different time then. ”

The first album that belongs to me

Beatles – Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band ‘

“I picked it up when I went out for Christmas and found it the other day when I was finally trying to sort out my LPs. I haven’t played this ass for years, but there are still cut-outs from the cardboard that came with it: you got the mustache you wore like Sgt Pepper, but I never cut them because when I was ten, even a ten-year-old boy with a dark brown mustache at the time looked a little dull. It’s something I can never get rid of, it’s a family legacy. “

The first concert I went to

Pentagon at Royal Albert Hall, 1968

“I got free tickets from the back Melody creator [magazine] When I was 15, I went to school with my girlfriend. They were fantastic, I was very creamy de la cream of English prog-rock, I didn’t know that, but I’m glad to see them. It was performed right, the music standard was fantastic. ”

A song reminiscent of my home

Kinks – “Waterloo Sunset”

“It’s a song about cherries on a cake by London and Ray Devies, a great songwriter. Where I live, I occasionally see Terence Stamp walking down the street, as if Terry in the words “Terry and Julie …” is comfortable. I was once on a train on the Bakerloo Line, where there was Terence Stamp, but he looked like a hippie wearing pants and wearing Jesus sandals. He sat down next to me and no one said anything. When he falls early, [another commuter] from me: “Who was that ?!” he asked. and I said, ‘Don’t you know who this is? This is Superman’s father! “

If I write the song I want

David Bowie – “Heroes”

“It’s just glorious,” he said. There is great hope in the lyrics and it’s great to play there. It’s kind of like “Anarchy …”, a kind of mid-speed song that I’m trying to please. People have always said “pistol” is really fast, but that’s not true. It’s a bit like a cup of tea and a hairstyle, you know, “How do you like, sir?” That’s right. “

A song performed in karaoke

Emil Ford and Chess – ‘What do you want me to do with these eyes’

“I play roles in a little old rock. In the closed position I rode my bike and there was a blue plaque on the wall at the bottom of Kensington Church Street, opposite the church where they sold flowers, and it [dedicated] Emil Ford. It said he was the first British African-Caribbean guy to set a record in the country. I didn’t know it, so it went up a bit, I guess. ”

A song that never leaves my mind

Snow – “Mah Na Mah Na” (from.) Puppet show)

“Since you started singing in this pub and everyone joins it, it drives everyone crazy. About a week later, while you were drinking coffee, one of your friends came in and said “Mah na mah na” and you left again. I think it’s an Italian thing – I go to Italy a lot and there’s a really nasty “ha haa music” of 60s rock and n ’roll music. “

A song you want to dance to

Chubby Checker – “Let’s go around again”

“I’m not ashamed to dance, I think you should seize this opportunity. Gone are the days of turning to “Mnnnn”. I love to join, but only five minutes. “

The song I wanted was performed at my funeral

Lee Marvin – “I was born under the star of” Wand “

“I was lucky enough to go to Joe Strummer’s funeral, and when we wrote,‘ I was born under Vandrin’s Star. It was a very good choice and maybe I could make him a monkey monkey. This applies to any musician, especially now. We’ve been stuck for a long time and I want to get on a plane and go to a slightly more exotic place than usual. ”

The film, “Live Recovery,” starring Glen Matlock, will be screened at Sky Arts on June 3 at 9 p.m.
