The Filth And The Fury!

I got this for £1 a few weeks back:

Sex Pistols - Never Mind The Bollocks (1977)

The Sex Pistols were signed to EMI in Oct 1976, but then dropped on Jan 6th 1977, not long after a controversial TV appearance where some effing and blinding had taken place.  It wasn't their first public controversy, or indeed their last.  After a very short-lived signing to A&M, they finally released Never Mind The Bollocks on Virgin.

My favourite song is the album closer, written about their first record label.  It ends with Rotten blowing them a raspberry:

Sex Pistols - EMI

The former owner of this copy has identified it with their punk name.  Just inside the cover, scrawled in biro, is the alias 'Sick Nick'.  Brilliant.

Spotify:  Sex Pistols – Holidays In The Sun        Sex Pistols – God Save The Queen
