HISTORY REPEATS, REMEMBER THE OUTRAGE?

Way back in 2001 ‘The Sex Pistols Experience’ decided the tribute band scene could be changed. The days of false wigs, poor musicianship, & comedic efforts were no longer acceptable. After some lengthy auditions & many cold winter months rehearsing, the band burst onto the scene like ‘Rebels with a Cause’. They looked the part & nothing was false. The band sounded the part, exactly like the real deal -in fact many would later say ‘”better than them”. The gigs were hot, sweaty & crazy, just as a proper Punk show should be, a long way from the tame lightweight tribute shows of old. They were loud, chaotic, & controversial, but made it into many music press & publications for all the right reasons. There was no desire to ever settle for 2nd best, & nobody will ever match the band for the achievements they later reached. They changed the way tribute shows should be presented Worldwide, & set the height barrier that others try & consistently fail to reach.
