GLEN MATLOCK: On Something: CD

Yes, I know this is over a year old, but it’s only been available as a pricey import for awhile. El Cheapo Americans like myself have to sweat it out until all the change from the couch cushions fall out. Third release with The Philistines. This cohesive backing band features Steve New (ex-Rich Kids) on guitar. With that introduction, you know it holds up underwater. “White Knuckle Ride,” “On Something,” and “On The Horizon” are the songs on here that hit home the most for me here. But you’ll probably enjoy them all. One bit of irony here—note the record label below. Does this mean a certain song has to be dropped from his “part time” other band’s set list? If it’s up to a Mr. Lydon, I think not!
