Summary
"A definitive celebration packed with previously unseen material of the original punk band--the group that defined a movement, energized a generation, and brought punk music and the safety-pin aesthetic to the mainstream. The Sex Pistols have defined the look, sound, and feel of the punk movement since they formed in London in 1975. Together for less than three years--a short run that included just four singles and one studio album before they broke up in 1978--their impact on the musical and cultural landscape of the last forty years is nothing short of remarkable. The Sex Pistols--Johnny Rotten, Steve Jones, Paul Cook, and Glen Matlock (later to be replaced by Sid Vicious)--were brought together by the cultural impresario Malcolm McLaren. Between the cultivated attitude of the players themselves, the aggressive management of McLaren, and the tremendous success of their era-defining album Never Mind the Bollocks Here's the Sex Pistols, the band embodied the punk spirit and colored the worlds of music, fashion, youth culture, and design forever. Published to coincide with the fortieth anniversary of the band's formation, Johan Kugelberg and Jon Savage draw on an unprecedented wealth of material--from McLaren's handwritten letters to never-before-seen photographs of the band, Jamie Reid's iconic album artwork, and a range of ephemera from concert tickets to fanzines--to produce the most comprehensive visual history of the band ever produced and a bible of popular culture for years to come"--Publisher's website
