“This is what the Sex Pistols might have been like if Johnny Rotten had never been born, and Sid Vicious was the singer.” So says The Independent in its homage to Towers of London.
Actually, we think these self-styled bad boys of rock – and there's always room for a new set of “bad boys of rock” sound more like Spinal Tap than punk people, especially on their head banging biggie of the moment, the contentious sounding I'm A Rat. But what do we know?
Donny Tourette ( the controversy element in this year's Celebrity Big Brother before they got the racists) and brother Dirk will be leading the thundering hooves into Liverpool next Thursday (March 8), hanging out of the back of the van and giving everyone the fingers as they soar over the Rocket Flyover for a gig at the Barfly which is sold out, sold out!
Their manager, Nathan McGough, is well placed to show them around the Iron Men or perhaps take them on the Ducks. So duck! After all, he is a scouser, the stepson of poet Roger, actually, and a sort of Simon Fuller of the bad boyband world.
After a crazy career “in charge” of the Happy Mondays, who really set the standard in unruly antics, we bet Nathan, who we haven't seen for a long time in these parts, be wielding a cricket bat backstage when his new babies crank it up to eleven next week.
Be there or be square by entering our competition today - and we hope you have a lovely “*+%&::^!” time if you win.
This competition has now closed. Congratulations to Dave Hanley, have a great night!
