Punk pioneer Pole plays pub gig at Charles Bradlaugh


Musician, actor, punk pioneer and former Sex Pistol, Ed Tudor Pole, returns to the county this weekend.

Pole briefly joined the Sex Pistols in 1978 after the departure of Johnny Rotten and despite only spending a short period with the band, which included a handful of rehearsals, he still produced some memorable moments with them, including appearing in the The Great Rock & Roll Swindle, singing on the title track, Who Killed Bambi, and a version of Bill Haley’s Rock Around The Clock.

Following the demise of the band, he formed Tenpole Tudor and the band wrote a series of hits during the early 1980s, including Wunderbar and Swords of A Thousand Men. Pole is also known for his appearances as presenter on Channel 4’s The Crystal Maze.

He plays the Charles Bradlaugh in Earl Street, Northampton on November 15. Support is by Kevin Hewick and DJ Alex Novak.

Doors open at 8pm, tickets cost £5.
