Classic Catalogue Album: 'Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols'
In their short lifespan Sex Pistols produced just one studio album, but they changed the face of popular music and culture in general. 'Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols' was released by Virgin in 1977 and perfectly articulated the frustration and rage of Britain’s disaffected youth. Johnny Rotten’s vitriolic vocals are matched by the punishing power chords of Steve Jones, expertly captured by producer Chris Thomas.
Following the outrage caused by singles 'God Save the Queen' and 'Anarchy in the UK' the album was housed in another distinctive cover designed by Jamie Reid. 'Never Mind the Bollocks...' has inspired countless musicians across the world to produce work that questions traditional values and social conventions.
'Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols' was re-released by Universal records on 24th September in a super deluxe edition with bonus tracks and other exclusive material.
The album was written by Rotten/Jones/Cook/Matlock – Sid Vicious is credited on two songs. Universal Music Publishing Group is proud to represent Steve Jones and Paul Cook
