Punk ad in Horticulture Week

Punk ad in Horticulture Week

A good friend of mine is the current drummer with the Subway Sect, a 70s punk band who were contemporaries of the Sex Pistols and The Clash. Despite having a few minor hits with (excellent) singles Ambition and Nobody’s Scared, the band never did particularly well and singer Vic Godard, who is the only original member still in the band, works as a part-time postman to pay the bills. As my friend is now on the punk revival circuit, playing festivals at holiday camps with the likes of UK Subs and The Exploited, I get all the gossip about what all of our other punk rock heroes are up to. Apparently original Sex Pistol and Rich Kid Glen Matlock is a mad-keen gardener and is training to become a nursery manager with tree and shrub nursery Rochfords Gardens – I guess he must be behind this pastiche of Jamie Reid’s infamous Sex Pistols album cover that appears as an advert in the current issue of Horticulture Week .
