You can't manufacture this type of hype. Members of The Sex Pistols, The Who and Primal Scream will form a one-night-only supergroup that will perform on July 24 at London's 1234 festival, held in Shoreditch. Primal Scream's Bobby Gillespie told NME that the project is dubbed "Silver Machine" and features current The Who drummer Zak Starkey, Sex Pistols' bassist Glen Matlock and Primal Scream guitarists Andrew Innes and Barrie Cadogan. The band will perform songs by their favorite bands, including Troggs, MC5, Chocolate Watch Band, The Creation and Flamin' Groovies.
Clearly, Silver Machine will come, see and conquer, and then get right back on their horse and ride off into the sunset, never to be heard from again. Unless, of course, this little covers troupe catches fire and demand becomes deafening.
Should they try and get Pete Townsend to drop by and throw a few licks down?
