Britain in 1976 was a country divided by class and deeply wounded by industrial unrest and unemployment. The music industry was almost comatose with the effect of overblown supergroups producing self indulgent ‘progressive rock’. Consequently the stage is set for four working class, individualistic and dispossessed teenagers to create chaos and mayhem among the established order of the music business and in 1977 produce one of the most influential albums in rock music. They were The Sex Pistols. This programme tells the story of the making of ‘Never Mind The Bollocks -Here’s The Sex Pistols’, the album that was, and remains today, a key inspiration worldwide for the alternative music scene. In exclusive interviews with John Lydon, Steve Jones, Paul Cook and Glen Matlock we tell this incredible story and take a track by track look at the making of the album. Malcolm Mclaren, their ‘Manager’ tells his side of the story whilst Chris Thomas (Producer) and Bill Price (Producer/Engineer) set the record straight about the recording sessions and return to the original multitrack tapes for evidence of the bands dynamic musicianship. Steve and Glen demonstrate riffs and licks from the songs and explain the development of the songwriting. There are also contributions from Dave Goodman (early demo recordings producer), journalists and record executives from the time. The featured songs include ‘Anarchy In The UK’, ‘Pretty Vacant’, ‘God Save The Queen’, ‘Holidays In The Sun’, ‘EMI’, ‘Bodies’ and ‘Problems’. The program is illustrated by archive footage from the Sex Pistols in concert, TV performances, home movie footage, promotional videos, and early demo recordings. ‘Never Mind The Bollocks’ set the standards for all future punk rock recordings. This program provides a unique insight into the making of a record which still remains a milestone in rock history. A true Classic Album.
