Troublemakers and Boys in the Street: Vintage Trouble w/Greg Holden on tour.
One of the most exciting live bands of recent note, Los Angeles’ Vintage Trouble hits the road again, this time in promotion of their latest, 1 Hopeful Road (Blue Note Records). The band has barely been in existence for five years, yet struts with a swagger like bands that have been around for decades.
Having just finished stints playing huge venues with the likes of The Who, Paloma Faith, and AC/DC, the band scales back to smaller venues for its own headlining tour but count on singer Ty Taylor to scale the speakers, possibly crowd surf, and otherwise be a part of the crowd.
Arrive early as well, as Scottish born/New York based singer/songwriter Greg Holden opens. His latest, Chase the Sun (Warner Bros Records) contains the effervescent single, ‘Boys in the Street’ that’s receiving local airplay, and Holden is also the co-writer of Philip Phillips’ ‘Home’, which ruled the airwaves in 2013.

After leaving the legendary punk band The Sex Pistols, singer Johnny Rotten (real name: John Lydon) decided to form Public Image Ltd., often abbreviated to PiL, with former Clash member Keith Levene and school friend Jah Wobble (of Jah Wobble's Invaders Of The Heart, who had a great hit with Sinead O'Connor with "Visions of You" in 1992).
Anyway, I'm happy to report that PiL is back with a new album What The World Needs Now…, and the preceding single "Double Trouble" is just brilliant.
There will also be a world tour, in support of the new album... and joining Lydon will be former The Damned guitarist Lu Edmonds, bassist Scott Firth, and The Pop Group's drummer Bruce Smith.
Let's hope for a US tour after their European dates (listed below).

London band Pink Film (singer Ziyad Al-Samman, bassist Frank Styles, guitarist Laurence Hammerton and drummer Danny Brooks) will be releasing their new single "Trouble" (with b-side "Rubber") this October 2nd.
The single was recorded with sonic-sorcerer Shuta Shinoda and features an impromptu sax addition from a Parisian jazz prodigy who happened to be recording in the other studio.
The special 'Trouble' show will also be held on October 2nd at the Garage in London.
