Sex Pistols - Anarchy In The UK

I remember when they arrived they were excited since it was a massive venue, maybe 3, people. It was finally a chance to play a big gig and prove to people they were a great live band. Well, the show started and, to their horror, they realized it was a backline sound system.
We were creating mayhem and eventually police boats pulled up to us. The band kept saying, 'Fuck off!

Fuck off! Malcolm made sure he got arrested and he made his statement about the oppression of the society and God knows what else. That sort of sums it up.
Most people don't realize that fans back then didn't have Mohicans. That came after the demise of the Pistols, around In and nobody had them. The main thing about punk back then was self creation.
It was about buying an old jacket, writing words on it or whatever and making it your own. People used to show up at the clubs with plastic bags. They'd disappear into the toilet and come out looking glorious.
Sex Pistols-Pretty Vacant Lyrics
They knew they couldn't leave their homes like that. Johnny kind of walked out of the shot.
If you look at Sid's jacket, it's slightly open and you can see where he was cutting himself. He did that quite a lot. The same goes for Steve Jones on guitar.
The sadness for these two is that their abilities have gone so unrecognized. They really crafted the sound of the band. John's voice is on top of them, but all the sound is coming from them.

John, however, really worked it. We opened the curtain, moved away some furniture and that was it. This shot with Sid winking is one of the most bootlegged shots of mine. It's been ripped off so many times.
It's just unbelievable. People often tell me they thought it was public domain or they come up with some other excuse.
One guy actually told me he had no memory of bootlegging it because he had Bird Flu! I had no sympathy for him.
These people will come up with any excuse they can think of. It was a disco club and they had to play on the floor. Again, there was no division between the crowd and the band. Just a rope.
The gig was pulled after a few songs, just complete chaos. It was exactly what Malcolm wanted. When I look at this picture, I see Sid becoming stronger within his presence in the band.

John was an amazing frontman, one of the best I've ever seen, but Sid had huge potential. He just didn't know what he had, but he slowly figured it out.
You can see Sid coming forward in this photo and John kind of lurking back. Richard [Branson] had a real vision, and after they were dumped by a bunch of labels, he knew signing them was the best way to break out of the hippie thing.
It was a very brave move, and it caused Virgin to just go through the roof. It allowed them to sign Human League, Culture Club and many others.
Signing the Sex Pistols was the best move he ever made. The band resisted mainstream popularity many times, one occasion being their induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inrefusing to attend the ceremony and calling the museum a "piss stain.
