So last gig of 2014 on Friday 19th Dec will be our Christmas party at the Cardiff 'Globe' venue, with guest Ed Tenpole Tudor, sure to be a fantastic night to round-off what has been an incredible year for the band, the busiest ever, with more sold out shows up & down the u.k & into Europe than we've ever 'experienced' before.
2015 is looking like more of the same with plenty more live dates all over the u.k, & tours of Europe planned & being planned, festival dates coming in, & one or two special announcements to come early in the year.. Check back soon.! We have our New "Anarchy in the E.U" Live C.D out which we're very happy with, recorded at the last 'Sold out' London 100 Club gig & available at all shows, or over on the 'Store' page.
So once again, as we head into our 14th year of activity, we "thank you" for the unrivaled & unwavering support, & look forward to catching up with you all somewhere on the road in 2015. Keep up with us over on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/sexpistolsexperience , our new Twitter page, or right here on our trusty website...

The band are just about recovered from a couple of storming weekends overseas, with sell out shows in Zagreb, Berlin & Hamburg, here's a review from the messy mosh-pit in Hamburg:-
Anyone there may of noticed a couple of slight changes to the line-up with 'Sleepy Jones' & 'Kid Hazzard' filling in for us whilst our regular 'Clones & Vicious' guitar/bass combination were trapped in the u.k with family/work commitments, made no difference as the sweat was still pouring from the roof, the Mosh-pit was swirling in chaotic disorder, & everyone had a great time.!





After 2 successful, packed out & crazy shows in Croatia over last weekend (30th jan/1st Feb') the band prepare to travel to do a mini tour of Germany, including Thursday 6th Feb' at the Donkey Club Eindhoven Holland. Hamburg is almost 'sold out' so if your going make sure to get tickets for the Indra club, with guests 'Menace'. Saturday night we're in Berlin at Cortina Bob's. Then we're back to Germany in May for further dates.







Its been 35 yrs since Sid Vicious' untimely demise in the New York Bank Street apartment, on 35th anniversary the band will be over in Zagreb Croatia a 'Punk-Rock-Party' in celebration of all things 'Sid'- flights are cheap this time of year if you fancy it.!
See the Facebook event group for further info: www.facebook.com/events


A spot on the 'SATA24' T.V news channel from the Zagreb show, dunno what they're saying - doesn't matter really - but "Thanks" to the T.V music news for coming down to see us & all those local Croatians who made it such a great night..











2014 has got off to a flying start with a whole load of shows booked already months ahead. We're still filling all the gaps, & looking at a few festivals, but take a quick glance at where we're at for now & make a note in your new 2014 calendars if you can get along to any - & don't forget your advance tickets where applicable - especially for the 02 Academies & March 8th London 100 Club gig, further info for all shows is over on the tour dates pages.
