JUMPING THE SHARK-THE CLASH & THE SEX PISTOLS

The Clash MkII
Vince White Nick Shepherd Paul Simonon Joe Strummer Pete Howard

With the departures of Mick Jones and Topper Headon Joe and Paul decided to carry on regardless and put together a new version of the once mighty Clash. They looked more like a boy band than the revolutionary originals and the album Cut the Crap was something of a disaster, a number of the songs sounded like the kind of dross released by Punk frauds who jumped on the safety pin bandwagon. True fans of The Clash therefore view Combat Rock as their final album.

Dirty Punk
Sounding like the numerous dodgy Punk copyists.

Silly Thing
Pistols go pop
The Sex Pistols?
Post John Lydon were a mish mash of Malcolm MClaren ideas. Vocals were provided by Sid Vicious, Ronnie Biggs, Edward Tudor-Pole, Steve Jones and Paul Cook on the soundtrack to the Great Rock 'N' Roll Swindle. A depressing end to a legendary band. The Pistols ceased to be the moment Lydon finished singing No Fun at The Wintergarden in January 978. The records released afterwards were merely novelty in execution and content
