New Sex Pistols Collecting Site

There's a new Sex Pistols vinyl collecting site: sexpistolsvinyl.com that well know Pistols collector Duncan Turner has set up.

I know that Duncan is very keen to determine which are the orders of the pressings of the various albums, and heaven knows there's plenty of them and it's incredibly complicated.

Gavin Walsh's book is a very good starting reference point, but it is out-of-date, there are mistakes and new information has since come to light.

It'd be great if any of you hardcore Pistols collectors could visit the site and advise of any omissions so that the mysteries of the various pressings can be solved once and for all.

Killing For Company Charity Single

It was with heavy hearts that we all first heard the saddening news about the passing of Stuart Cable, founding member of Killing For Company, former drummer of the Stereophonics and tragically missed son, father, brother and band-mate.

To honour the life’s-work of this talented and giving individual, on July 25th Stuart’s current band members from rock group, Killing For Company, will be releasing a single dedicated to his memory.

The proceeds from ‘Former Mining Town’ will be donated towards the charities, Teenage Cancer Trust and Tŷ Hafan, the family hospice for young lives.

In the past Stuart regularly involved himself in charitable events, raising funds throughout the years for Macmillan Cancer, NetAid and other charities. He was part of a billboard campaign for Testicular Cancer Awareness in 2002 and recently completed a 50 mile Welsh Cycle Challenge for PACT – Parents & Abducted Children Together, only a few days before his tragic death.

His Killing For Company band members commented: “To think Stu won’t be joining us on stage anymore is a hard thought to face and although his passing is tragic, we hope to draw some positive from this difficult time. As a band, we are honoured and privileged to have shared the experiences we've had with Stu.

We will be releasing the single, ‘Former Mining Town’, and dedicating it to Stuart; he was hugely proud of the album and this track in particular. All funds raised will be donated to Teenage Cancer Trust and Tŷ Hafan.
Not only have we lost a rock legend but also a best friend and the heart of our band. The stage will not be the same without him.”

‘Former Mining Town’ was written and recorded by Killing For Company in 2009 and will be available for download only from July 25th 2010 via iTunes and all other major online stores. Please join us in this worthy cause and pay tribute to the talented musician that has been lost to us all.
