Punk legends celebrate 30th anniversary with vinyl release
Sex Pistols are to release a special 30th anniversary edition of their classic debut album 'Never Mind The Bollocks...Here's The Sex Pistols'.
The album will be re-issued on October 29 in heavy weight vinyl with a 7" insert of 'Submission' and a poster. The format is how the record was originally released on October 28, 1977. 'Submission' was missed off the original tracklisting when the album was mistakenly released a week earlier than planned. Due to the band's insistence, the first 50,000 copies of the album included a one-sided 7".
The band are also set to re-release their four classic singles: 'Anarchy In The UK', 'God Save The Queen', 'Pretty Vacant' and 'Holidays In The Sun'. The tracks will be released throughout October on seven-inch vinyl in reproductions of their iconic single sleeves. According to the band's label Virgin, The vinyl re-issue of the album will "re-create all the original artwork from the first editions' front and back. It will be housed in heavyweight paper sleeves". The limited edition reissues will take place throughout October.
'Anarchy In The UK' will be released on October 1, 'God Save The Queen' on October 8, 'Pretty Vacant' on October 15 and 'Holidays In The Sun' on October 29.
