THE BERMONDSEY JOYRIDERS
Brian Jones/Johnny Thunders Double A-Side Tribute Single
Radical punk blues trio The Bermondsey Joyriders have released a 7" white vinyl double A-Side single in homage to two of the most loved and missed characters from the golden age of rock 'n roll.
The Bermondsey Joyriders are not only proud of their English heritage but here is a band whose roots are firmly rooted in Carnaby Street of the Swinging Sixties and the glory days of Tin Pan Alley and the spirit of Wardour Street's Marquee Club when punk was ready to explode.
This band don't need a time machine, they're still living happily living in the past believing that the three day working work did in fact come into fruition.

Stand out track is 'Brian Jones (The Real True Leader Of The Rolling Stones)' and although the real true leader of the Stones is debatable this groover has an infectious riff and sing-along chrous that will get you jiving and your hips shaking.
The AA side is 'Johnny Thunders Was A Human Being' is a reworking of an earlier Joyriders song from their debut album in 'Part Of My Problem' which had more of a garage edge compared to this version.
The lyrics have been changed a little to feature the titles of tracks written by Thunders, but with Chris Musto on drums who played in Thunders Oddballs this is a neat little tribute and is a nice little appetizer before the next full length album arrives at the end of May.
You'll be advised to snap one of these singles rather sharpish as the white vinyl is only limited to 300 copies. It's out now on Fuel Records.
