The Sex Pistols: Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols

Ira Robbins, Trouser Press, January 1978

HO HUM, ANOTHER album from the Pistols. No, seriously, this is it. After all the controversy, bannings, bullshit and speculation, the Pistols finally have something tangible for the American audience to judge them by. While England has been exposed to four singles from the group you love to hate, America only knows what it's read; most of that has, unfortunately, been utter rubbish. This stateside release has one track not appearing on the initial British copies, but otherwise it's the real thing.
