WHO DIDN’T SEE THIS COMING?
With three of their members reuniting onstage together for the first time in 30 years, THE PROFESSIONALS are being celebrated with the definitive box set.
Across three CDs and 47 tracks on The Complete Professionals are the whole of 1981’s I Didn’t See It Coming, plus non-album singles ‘123’, ‘Just Another Dream’ and ‘Join The Professionals’, unreleased demos, outtakes and BBC sessions. There are also four rare tracks featuring THE CLASH’S Paul Simonon and actor Ray Winstone, recorded as The Looters for the film Ladies & Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains, and two tracks sung by SHAM 69’s Jimmy Pursey under the name Sham Pistols.
Check out the video for ‘123’.
The Complete Professionals is released through Universal on 30 October. Before that, Paul Cook, Ray McVeigh and Paul Myers will reunite onstage at a sold out 100 Club in London on 16 October to celebrate the band’s music. FASTLANE ROOGALATOR guitarist Tom Spencer will stand in for the absent Steve Jones.
