ED TUDOR POLE
If you think that punk music should be like
a McDonalds burger, ie:- utterly predictable and the same every time then
your view differs from Tenpole's!
"The sprit of punk has always been
there - it's something to do with rebellion, e.g. Jerry Lee Lewis
or Keith Richards, just happens that in 1976 they named this spirit
'Punk'.! " say's Ed.
Tenpole was glad to find out what he was at
last, for he'd been playing guitar and trying to write great songs in that
spirit since he was a boy, long before 1976 came along.
"Punk is an attitude not a form of
music, ask Steve Jones!!? Sayís Tenpole. " I date back to the birth of
punk rock when it was all about being original, create your own look, and
before the time when it became a competition to see which band could
sound the most similar to another! I've always rebelled against uniformity.
If it is just a simple formula then it is not subversive, and if there is no
subversion, ladies & gentlemen, it ain't Punk!!"
"At the moment Iím trying to see how
much excitement can be generated with a man, a guitar, & an audiences. If
you have to label what I play, call it Rock'n'Roll. Ever onward my fellow
being's! Avoid stagnation: whatever else it is, Punk is surely
"By the way, all your view's on what
punk represents are as true & valid as mine, however different, we
all think our opinion is the right one, but who can judge?? Come and see
me play, Iím getting good now, but ultimately, it's down to YOU how good the
Love to you all, the spirit
will never die. - Edward Tudor Pole. 24/10/05
RADA Trained Edward Tudor Pole briefly joined
the Sex Pistols in 1978 after the departure of 'Johnny (Rotten) Lydon',
surviving with the band for four or five rehearsals in the Pistols den &
practice room on Denmark St, but in the short association he had with the
band still managed to help produce some memorable moments, most notably his
performance in the film 'The Great Rock & Roll Swindle', adding his own
distinctive vocals on the title track, as well as the crazy 'Who Killed
Bambi', & beefed up version of Bill Haleys 'Rock Around The Clock' . Then
Sid Vicious moved to New York, leaving Ed to move on to front his own band
'Tenpole Tudor, with whom he had U.K chart hits with 'Wunderbar', Throwing my
baby out with the bathwater, & 'Swords of a thousand men'.
These day's he's probably best known for his
appearances on Ch4's 'The Crystal Maze', & 'Tops of the pop's'! Ed
has appeared in numerous films & plays, including the 'Rocky Horror
Show', 'White Hunter Black Heart' with Clint Eastwood and more recently as Mr
Borgin in 'Harry potter 2', and the life & death of Peter Sellers, in
which he played the part of Spike Milligan.
His recent re-awakening to the live music
scene has seen some classic performances, especially alongside the 'Sex
Pistols Experience' tribute show, and his 'one-man acoustic show' has to be
seen to be believed. Ageing punks & new fans attracted by his T.V &
film roles are treated to a mix of punk, country, and pure rock 'n' roll.
Each of his catchy tunes pays tribute to a variety of stars. His new material
blending in with the classic punk anthems & his 80's chart singles.
Some people were just born to be on stage, Ed
has boundless energy, and leads any audience into a charismatic, witty,
madcap & fun-filled performance, captivating the attention of all those
lucky enough to catch him live. But this is a new age Ed Tenpole,
not wanting to be seen living on memories, a new album is being worked
on, and he can be seen on club circuit with his solo show, or on the
larger venue's warming up the crowd for the Sex Pistols Experience.
