SEX PISTOLS / Spunk (1977)

Originally a bootleg leaked about a month prior to the slicker sounding Never Mind the Bollocks, this collection of demos eventually received an official release in various forms over the years.  It’s not as frantic as NMTB, and the vocals are sadly lacking that stylistic Lydon sneer in places but the rawness, the lack of production, is appealing to some Pistols fans.  Plus, it still had Glen Matlock on bass.  If you know NMTB well, you’ll notice a few lyric changes had taken place before its eventual release.  One for fans only.


3½ screwed up track titles out of 5
