Jimmy Norton's Explosion - 1979 - Peel Sessions 30-07-1979 (UK)
An early incarnation of The Spectres came together after the split of the Rich Kids and consisted of a line up of Glen Matlock, Rich Kids guitarist Steve New, former Tom Robinson Band (TRB) guitarist Danny Kustow, and drummer Budgie who was between spells with The Slits, and Siouxsie & The Banshees. Glen had previously hooked up with Budgie as part of a Bette Bright & The Illuminations tour after the demise of the Rich Kids, and he had met Kustow at a TRB gig some three years before. Kustow bit on a blood capsule during the set which alarmed Glen who thought the band's singer had punched him in the face! The band were tentatively titled 'The Jimmy Norton Explosion'. They recorded a Peel Session which was aired in July 1979 and Glen has since said that this may have featured Mick Ronson (Ronson had produced the Rich Kids album and in the 90's Glen performed at two Ronson tribute gigs as well as dedicating the track 'My Man' to him). Glen contributed three tracks; 'Getting Away With Murder', 'Lazarus' and 'Ambition'. The other track was the Danny Kustow penned 'Lost In A Landslide'. There were also a couple of live performances under the Jimmy Norton moniker
