Formed by Paul Cook and Steve Jones, The Professionals arrived on the scene in 1979 following the demise of the Sex Pistols.
The Professionals reformed in October 2015 (minus Steve Jones and with the addition of Tom Spencer) for a critically acclaimed, sold out 100 Club show. Fast-forward to 2017 and the new band spearheaded by Paul Cook, Paul Myers and Tom Spencer released the first material under the Professionals name in 35 years with the full blessing of founding member Steve Jones.
The album featured a handful of special guests, all lending their distinctive sounds including Marco Pirroni (Adam and The Ants), Billy Duffy (The Cult), Mick Jones (The Clash), Duf McKegan (GnRs), Phil Colin (Def Leopard) and of course, Steve Jones.
Following trips abroad to Germany, Sweden, Spain, Hong Kong and Japan that saw the band develop into the formidable live force that’s out there now, 2023 promises to be an equally exciting year.
