Although never used, Mark has picked up his pencils once again to adapt it for God Save the Sex Pistols. Rotten, Matlock, Jones, Cook and Sid Vicious in “God Save The Sex Pistols! Be sure to read the Disclaimer before you enter the site. Sex Pistols Bio Amidst the chaos that was the Sex Pistols, it’s often overlooked just what a great band they are, and what great records they made. The Pistols were inspired by anger and poverty, not art and poetry. There never was a punk movement. There was the Sex Pistols and there was the rest.

Fabrications are constantly spouted that when The Ramones came to England in 1976 the Sex Pistols turned up at their first show at London, Roundhouse, and asked them how to form a band. For 30 years the Pistols have had to put up with these kind of lies and petty jealousies. There is always someone, somewhere, trying to undermine them. It just proves they were doing something right in the first place. Glen Matlock later joined in 1974.

John Lydon to audition in his shop. Lydon launched into a series of self-mocking fits, hunches, and weird dances, while the others fell about laughing. However, deep down they knew they had found their man, someone who could help vocalize their thoughts. Lydon was an individual of the highest order. This was a time where your haircut and clothes could get you into serious trouble. With their unique look and sound, the Sex Pistols were such a bolt out of the blue that they would often find themselves in physical danger. They would regularly have to fight their way to their van after having the plug pulled on them!

They wanted the biggest and best. December 1st, 1976 changed the Sex Pistols and the music scene forever. Today’ TV show, hosted by one Bill Grundy. A notorious drunk, Grundy had no time for these young upstarts. Around this time tensions between Matlock and Rotten came to boiling point. Matlock was steeped in rock and roll tradition, while Rotten clearly wasn’t. Despite being practically unable to play bass!

M deal, the band staged a mock signing outside Buckingham Palace. The next record company headhunt ended with them reluctantly signing to Richard Branson’s Virgin Records in May 1977. Just in time for the Queen’s 25th Silver Jubilee. The nation was gripped by Royal fever. The Queen was a national treasure. Everyone loved her, everyone except the Sex Pistols.

God Save The Queen’ sent shockwaves up and down the country. The band also had a perfect collaboration with Jamie Reid on artwork. This was Britain 1977 long before Diana, Fergie, Edward and the likes had exposed the Monarchy for what they were. No one had ever spoken up so publicly about them. The nation was up in arms. Government Members of Parliament even called for the band to be hung at London’s Traitors’ Gate!
