Carbon/Silicon frontman Mick Jones has revealed that the band will play this year's Electric Picnic on August 29.

The Hot Press Newsdesk, 12 May 2008

The Sex Pistols aren’t the only punk legends appearing at the Electric Picnic, with former Clash man Mick Jones informing Hot Press last night that his new outfit, Carbon/Silicon, will be playing the Friday night at Stradbally Hall.

“People keep telling us what a great festival it is, so we thought we ought to find out for ourselves,” Jones told us after the band’s barnstorming show in the Dublin Village with his former Generation X and Sigue Sigue Sputnik partner in crime, Tony James.

Having run through pretty much all of their The Last Post debut album, the chaps finished with a mash up version of The Equals’ ‘Police On My Back’, which The Clash re-worked on Sandinista!
