‘God Save Sex Pistols’
‘God Save Sex Pistols’ is the brand spankin’ new book that chronicles the Pistols in all their filth, fury and punk rock glory
Four decades have gone by since the seminal and shameless ‘Anarchy in the U.K‘ kicked us in the teeth. From punk rock’s coolest chronicler Jon Savage, editor Johan Kugelberg, and the Pistol’s ace archivist Glenn Terry, comes ‘God Save Sex Pistols‘, a deluxe tome (500 pages in all) that teems with rare press clippings, never-before-seen photos, silkscreen prints, concert tickets, fanzines, and album artwork from the band that gave us the most iconic, psychotic ‘fuck you’ filth, fury and sonic belligerence ever. Mashing-up manic memorabilia — posters, fliers, scribbled verses, Q&A’s, legal docs, Polaroids and even propaganda from zealous anti-punk crusaders like politicians and the Christian far right — this bang-up book is a visual tour de force and unflinching anthology of the Pistol’s irreverent and irrevocable impact on youth culture, art and everything else in pop.
