PRETTY VACANT (Sex Pistols Tribute Band)

PRETTY VACANT is a tribute to the SEX PISTOLS, one of rock’s most notorius, recreating the Pistols short lived but fiery career performing the songs as they did. Experience the exitement, fury and raw power of the epitome of the all punk bands,  the SEX PISTOLS, in their full blown glory with PRETTY VACANT! 
While Pretty Vacant looks and acts like the Pistols, they certainly improve on the sound as most live recordings and bootlegs show how the Pistols were ‘orrible in live performances.
Pretty Vacant came about due to the feeling that stagnation has fully reared its head again in today’s music with its carefully calculated record company marketing formulas who dare not take any gamble on conceptual or cutting edge music due to fear of not appealing to the lowest common denominator and therefore being consumed by the internet’s impact on the industry.  With Pretty Vacant, there is a cry for individuality and anarchy, which was stifled with 80’s new wave and disco which promote conformity and being part of a group with rules and laws to adhere to or you’re “out”. Pretty Vacant looks to break down the barriers between the listeners and the performers, not distance themselves from them as the evil empire record companies seek to do with the “buy the album, go home and listen to it curdled up with a hot cup of cocoa” mentality. There is not a quest for a record contact, quite the opposite. Punk rock is the music of all classes expressing the suppression of the working class and the decadence of the elite.  They’re Pretty Vacant and they don’t care!

KINGS OF QUEENS (Ramones Tribute Band)

Atlanta's Ramones Tribute Band "The Kings Of Queens" play songs from the first four Ramones LPs: Before Phil Spector, synths, hardcore or outside writers.
