Sex Pistols release boxset
It's to celebrate the 35th anniversary of Never Mind The Bollocks...
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 25 Jul 2012
Of course, you could argue that repackaging and expanding the Pistols' incendiary first album to tie in with some nostalgic anniversary runs contrary to every thing they initially said they stood for... But it's still pretty exciting.
On September 24, you can pick up a 'super deluxe' boxset of Never Mind The Bollocks, Here's The Sex Pistols, as the seminal work turns 35.
The long-lost master tapes have been re-masterd by Tim Young, whilst we get demo recordings of 'Belsen Was A Gas' (yes, it seems Sid was behind those obnoxious lyrics) and six Spunk bootlegs, as well as demos and outtakes. You'll also get posters, stickers, handwritten lyrics, a withdrawn 'God Save The Queen' 7", as well as a 100-page 1977 Diary and DVD.
If you don't fancy a blast from the past, let's look to the future – John Lydon will play with his beloved PiL at the Button Factory on July 26. Tickets are still onsale.
