Glen Matlocks gets his final payoff today for being a Sex Pistol, a cheque for £2,965. Not a lot considering the £50,000 advance EMI paid into the bands account. He heads out for a drink to the Nashville later on and emnds up in a punch up with the Damned's manager Jake Riviera who still held a grudge against the Pistols camp coz of the McLaren snub during the 'Anarchy' Tour.
