Punk pioneers unplugged in A.C.
It's an evening of some of the 1970's most influential music when Glen Matlock and Sylvain Sylvain bring their "Sex Doll Tour" to the Boneyard in Atlantic City tonight.
Matlock was a founder and original bass player for the pioneering British punk band The Sex Pistols. Although he left the group before it entered the recording studio, he is credited with co-writing 10 of the 12 songs on the band's ground-breaking "Never Mind The Bollocks, Here's The Sex Pistols," including "God Save the Queen" and "Anarchy in the U.K."
Sylvain Sylvain played guitar with The New York Dolls from 1971 to 1977 and then continued to collaborate with fellow Dolls bandmate David Johansen in the following years.
The show will feature the musicians playing acoustic versions of their material in a "punk unplugged" show. Also playing are Up For Nothing, Rising Miyagi and Brandon Smith.
