Sex Pistols – “Anarchy in the U.K.”

The Sex Pistols’ manager’s son is currently in the process of creating a documentary titled Wake Up Punk. The film will focus on Corre’s strange celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Sex Pistols’ 1976 single “Anarchy in the U.K.” The song helped push the punk movement forward and to mark the occasion, Corre publicly burned $6 million worth of punk memorabilia, including a rare acetate copy of the single.

Beastie Boys – “(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party)”

Beastie Boys just dropped a new documentary through Amazon Music in honour of the 25th anniversary of Ill Communication. The short film, titled Still Ill, contains interviews with surviving band members Mike D and Ad-Rock in addition to archival footage from the 80’s and 90’s. You can watch the mini-doc in full here.

The Cure – “Pictures of You”

The Cure are really making headlines recently, and this week, they livestreamed their concert celebrating the 30th anniversary of Disintegration. The band has been playing a five-night run of shows at Sydney’s Vivid LIVE festival to celebrate the anniversary. The final show was live-streamed on Facebook and YouTube, and is now available for all to watch.

Pavement – “Cut Your Hair”

Late last week, Pavement’s Stephen Malkmus teased that the odds of another Pavement reunion are “realistic.” Pavement broke up following their 1999 album Terror Twilight and later reunited for a tour in 2010. “Anything’s possible…if there’s interest, you know, that’s always a factor,” Malkmus explained on the podcast Rolling Stone Music Now. “If people are really psyched about it, I’d be psyched about it too. So we’ll see.”

“Radio Radio” – Elvis Costello

A few weeks ago, Elvis Costello and The Imposters released the Purse EP on streaming services. The collection of tracks was originally released as a sold-out Record Store Day Exclusive vinyl on April 13th, and now it’s available for all to listen to. The EP contains “Everyone’s Playing House,” “The Lovers That Never Were,” “If You Love Me,” and “Down On The Bottom.”
