The first incarnation of Slinky Vagabond

The first incarnation of Slinky Vagabond was in 2007 when Keanan Duffty formed the band with Earl Slick (David Bowie) producing and playing guitars, Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols) on bass and vocals, the legendary drummer Clem Burke (Blondie), with backing vocals from Pete Shelley (Buzzcocks) featuring on their cover of Bowie’s ‘Boys Keep Swinging’-

After recording and live performances in New York, with the reformation of Sex Pistols in 2007/2008 and Blondie’s touring schedule, this version of Slinky Vagabond soon split up, but the members still remain good friends.
