The Pretenders’ Chrissie Hynde also performed
Two of the Sex Pistols’ founding members reunited to play an impromptu gig at a London pub this weekend.
Drummer Paul Cook and bass guitarist Glen Matlock performed a short set at The Boogaloo in Highgate on Sunday evening.
The pair were joined by The Pretenders’ Chrissie Hynde later in the evening.
Last month, The Libertines played a secret gig at the North London venue. The show was the first time the band have played on home soil since their arena tour ended in January with a show at London’s O2.
The band hinted the gig is likely to be their last for some time, quoting Vera Lynn’s World War II anthem ‘We’ll Meet Again’ in a Twitter post which said: “We’ll meet again, don’t know where, don’t know when.”
But both Carl Barat and drummer Gary Powell have recently said that they hope to follow ‘Anthems For Doomed Youth’ with another Libertines album soon, so the Twitter post is unlikely to hint at any more permanent delay.
