Nihilistic English Bubblegum

Sex Pistols Some Product Carri On

This is an old Sex Pistols interview record, just a fan product to make some extra money off of, but the cover is so perfect. The Sex Pistols' manager Malcolm Mclaren pulled a Warholian avant garde underground art/cultural event as commodity before the Sex Pistols even had a chance to properly dissolve & become part of history. With Jamei Reid executing this larger vision, you've got something quite weird & quite wonderful.

The Great Rock&Roll Swindle is seen as one of the most terrible movies ever made, but i just love it. It's so English.

An old fuck recalls.....
Staying up 'til 3am on a school night to watch rock'n'roll swindle with the sound turned down really low so's not to wake my parents. The hanging scene, the s/m gasmask, Sid Vicious being an arsehole in a swastika t-shirt and who killed bambi?
Spooky, exciting stuff to a teenager....
Hey Sean, I was delighted to see that on your myspace photo you look EXACTLY like one of your drawings! (i mean that as a compliment).

Speaking of Sex Pistols and candy bars, did you ever see that episode of Comic Strip Presents where they had... ah.. the actress from Absolutely Fabulous, as Nancy meeting what was supposed to have been Sid in the episode and instead of drugs they get addicted to eating chocolate bars?

And I was looking at the filmography of the guy who directed the Sex Pistols flick and I saw that he did Earth Girls Are Easy! I love that movie! The part where they're fighting over who gets to check out the hot chicks in bikinis from their space ship is one of the funniest things I've ever seen.
