‘Never Mind The Bollocks, Here’s The Sex Pistols‘ Gets Deluxe Reissue

September 20, 2017

It is now almost 40 years to the day since legendary punk trailblazers Sex Pistols‘ debut album ‘Never Mind The Bollocks, Here’s The Sex Pistols’ was released. To mark this significant anniversary UMG are releasing a 3CD+DVD edition of the album on 27 October 2017.

The deluxe edition of the album was originally issued in 2012, but only in limited numbers, and this new edition is widely considered to be the definitive collection. This new, budget priced smaller-sized edition still boasts 3CDs which include the original studio album with 1977 B-sides, a disc of outtakes and one disc of 1977 live material.

In addition, there is a DVD featuring 1977 footage of the band playing live from the infamous boat party held on the River Thames, London, the Winter Gardens, Penzance in Cornwall and the Happy House, Stockholm, Sweden. Bringing it all together is a 48-page hardback book with narrative from music journalist Pat Gilbert plus rare photos from Bob Gruen, Barry Plummer, John Tiberi and Dave Wainwright.

Condensing the very essence of 1977, Never Mind The Bollocks, Here’s The Sex Pistols is the only studio album by the group, released amidst a furore of controversy and outrage, following their being dropped by not one but two record labels, banned from gigging in most parts of the UK and swearing live on TV. From its iconic day-glo cover designed by Jamie Reid in collaboration with the Sex Pistols to its risqué title which led to an infamous court case which the band won, the album encapsulates a moment in time when the Sex Pistols set the world of music on fire.

To coincide with the deluxe reissue of Never Mind The Bollocks, Here's The Sex Pistols, Cassell Books are issuing The Sex Pistols: 1977 - The Bollocks Diaries. The official inside story of the whirlwind year of 1977, straight from the mouths of Sex Pistols, the book also features a selection of photographs and rare visual items from Sex Pistols' archive.

The 3CD+DVD deluxe reissue of Never Mind The Bollocks, Here’s The Sex Pistols will be released on 27 October. Scroll down to read the full tracklist and order the box set here.
