That Sex Pistols played their first gig at Saint Martins College or whatever it was called back then.



They might not have been the very first punk band and, as the Damned will tell you, they weren't the first punk band to release a record in the UK.

But the fact is, they had a massive impact on music, society and, er, me.

Plus a few other people too.

Like my mate Jedd who lives in a shed down Gover.


PLUGS
Yep, 40 years ago today (6/11/15) Sex Pistols played their first gig at London's Saint Martins College as support to Bazooka Joe.

Before they could finish their set, though, the plugs were pulled and the Pistols' first live performance was over.

Little did they know it then (probably) but history had been made and just six months later they would be playing in front of 42m people, apparently, at the Lesser Free Trade Hall in Manchester.

Or something.

I could go on but I can't be arsed.

Why?

Because I'm a lazy sod.

Ladies and gentlemen, Sex Pistols...

IDOL NOISE

Ladies and gentlemen, be upstanding for the world's first 'Idol noise band', the truly glorious BiS Kaidan.

The same old chords

Ever wondered why so much pop music sounds the bloody same?
