A Tale Of Two Cities! Sex Pistols V’s Ramones Remix By London DJ Paula Frost Featuring Glen Matlock & Ed Tudorpole.
A tale of two cities indeed... DJ Paula Frost has mixed the Sex Pistols Pretty Vacant with legendary New Yorkers the Ramones Blitzkrieg Bop. The video features a cameo from Glen Matlock (original Sex Pistols bassist) and Ed Tudorpole (Sex Pistols vocalist during the ‘Swindle’ period, lead singer of Tenpole Tudor & Crystal Maze presenter). The Video was directed by UK Subs drummer Jamie Oliver, and filmed around iconic London punk locations. These Included Vivienne Westwood's famous ‘Worlds End’ boutique on Kings Road where the Sex Pistols came together and famously auditioned Johnny Rotten!
Even Jason Williamson from Sleaford Mods rates it "I like it. I shouldn't. But I do!" and he doesn't like much...
The 'mash up' comes straight out of the traps with the Pistols iconic guitar intro of Pretty Vacant mixed with the equally iconic chorus of 'Hey ho lets go 'from the Ramones... there's dance beats, even dub percussion, at times it does sound a little disjointed, but overall it bops and bouncers along nicely.... a fun mix. The video is colourful, and fun, who is the guy with the dog lurking in the background??
Paula has toured New Zealand, Japan, Italy, Vietnam, Cambodia, Russia and Croatia. Worked with Tippa Irie, played Rebellion online festival, and supported rock duo Slaves. Paula is set to support Ska legends Los Fastidios in Italy for their 30th Anniversary.
