It is now almost 40 years to the day since the Sex Pistols‘ Never Mind The Bollocks was released and to mark this significant anniversary USM/UMC are proud to revisit the out-of-print super deluxe edition of the album, which was originally issued in 2012. Released in limited numbers at the time, this set is widely considered to be the definitive version. Unlike its 12” by 12” predecessor this new, smaller-sized edition still boasts 3CDs which include the original studio album with 1977 B-sides, a disc of outtakes and one disc of live material. Additionally there is a DVD featuring 1977 footage of the band playing live from the infamous boat party held on the River Thames, London, the Winter Gardens, Penzance in Cornwall and the Happy House, Stockholm, Sweden. Bringing it all together is a 48-page hardback book with narrative from music journalist Pat Gilbert plus rare photos from John Tiberi, Bob Gruen, Dave Wainwright and Barry Plumm. Condensing the very essence of the punk era, Never Mind The Bollocks, Here’s The Sex Pistols is the only studio album by the group, released amidst a furore of controversy and outrage, following their being dropped by not one but two record labels, banned from gigging in most parts of the UK and swearing live on TV. From its iconic day-glo cover by Jamie Reid to its risqué title, the album encapsulates a moment in time when punk set the world of pop music on fire.
