Episode 16 - Shanne Bradley

Episode 16 - Shanne Bradley

I was put in contact with Shanne Bradley by some friends of mine in London who told me of her relationship with Shane MacGowan and the songs he had written for her and the fact that she was the founding member of The Nipple Erectors which included Shane on vocals.
I met her on a sunny afternoon in London and at her suggestion we visited Highgate Cemetry where Malcolm McLaren is buried.
She told me of her first encounter with McLaren and the Sex Pistols at St Albans School of Art and how she was unaware that she was witnessing the very birth of punk rock. For anyone interested in early punk bands like The Pistols, The Damned, The Clash or The Jam.
I think you'll find this quite a revealing listen.
