Synopsis:
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 was 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 interview 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. John Lydon gives his unique take on the songs, his lyrical inspirations and the whole Pistols phenomenon. Steve and Glen demonstrate riffs and licks from the songs, and explain the development of the music. 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 band's dynamic musicianship. There are also contributions from 'mis-manager' Malcolm McLaren, live sound engineer Dave Goodman, journalists and record executives from the time. The programme is illustrated by archive footage from the Sex Pistols in concert including very rare footage of 'EMI', 'New York' and 'Seventeen', TV performances, home movie footage, promotional videos, and early demo recordings. This programme provides a unique insight into the making of a record which still remains a milestone in rock history, a true Classic Album.
