Sex Pistols to debut new songs at Isle Of Wight

Veteran punks penning first tunes in three decades

The Sex Pistols could play their first new songs in nearly 30 years at the Isle Of Wight Festival this summer.

The reformed punks headline the event which takes place in June, and have admitted they want to write some new songs for the appearance.

“There’s talk of new material,” drummer Paul Cook told eGigs. “The only problem is that it’s a bit hard to work on anything as John (Lydon) and Steve (Jones) are in America and Glen (Matlock) and I are in the UK. So, it’s a case of finding the time to get together.”

He added that a new album from the Sex Pistols was unlikely, but they were targeting the festival for the new songs.

“We might not pull together an album but hopefully there will be some new stuff in time for the summer,” Cook explained.
