Remarquable Records issued a Limited 10-track LP. It contains 10 previously unreleased studio recordings co-produced by Steve Lillywhite and featuring Steve Jones and Paul Cook (Sex Pistols); Phil Lynott (Thin Lizzy); Peter Perrett and Mike Kellie (The Only Ones); Patti Palladin (Snatch); Paul Gray (Eddie and the Hot Rods) plus the Heartbreakers. The set has a 20″ x 10″ four page poster insert, as well as a download card for the songs.

JOHNNY THUNDERS : 1978 is the banner of our first REMARQUABLE project which documents Johnny’s career-peak year with releases that reveal for the first time the extent of his studio activities accompanied by restored or previously unpublished photographs from the period, plus an ongoing narrative allowing an insight into the year that produced his personal favourite album ‘SO ALONE’ and his most popular solo single ‘You Can’t Put Your Arms Around A Memory’. Original tapes have been sourced and restored and surviving participants – musicians, producers, engineers, designers, photographers, managers and record label personnel have contributed to our project allowing for as comprehensive a tale of 1978 as is possible.

Johnny Thunders. New York Doll. Heartbreaker. Rock’n’roller. Addict. Johnny has simultaneously inspired guitarists from his own, and every following generation and conversely sidestepped inclusion in any and every Top Guitarists listing over the same period. Critical pariah, and popular hero, Johnny exalted the very essence of the classic twentieth century rock’n’roll myth. (Stick his name in a web browser if you need to know more – or check out the official 1978 biography which accompanied his ‘So Alone’ album and is reproduced in our forthcoming special edition re-issue).
