Weekly Vinyl – Sex Pistols

31 Jul

No Future UK?
Sex Pistols
This is an album of what can be best described as studio outtakes from the punk band Sex Pistols. This band’s output was quite small, just one studio album, but its impact was huge.
It is no doubt that many people wanted to exploit their notoriety and no doubt that the members of the band wanted to get paid for their music.
There are no liner notes on this album denoting the origin of these recordings except that the album was, “released with kind permission of Glen Matlock, Steve Jones and Paul Cook.” This was the original bassist of the band and the guitarist and drummer. No Johnny Rotten – the vocalist. Interesting. Especially since it is his face on the cover.
The music is what you would expect – Most of the songs are very familiar to anyone who has heard the band play. The songs are rougher and less polished than what appeared on Never Mind the Bollocks, their only studio LP.
It is an interesting album for fans and/or collectors.
