An Evening with Sid and Nancy – The Odd Couple Behind Closed Doors.

Chris Salewicz, New Musical Express, 4 February 1978

SWAYING CRAZILY, Sid Vicious clambers up off the bed. He manages the three or four steps to where, obeying live-in-lover Nancy's instructions, he removes the "God Save The Queen" tablecloth from the top of the colour TV and turns to his visitor. He doesn't appear to notice that he should first have removed the two glasses of fresh orange juice resting on top of the cloth. They tumble down the front of the TV set and onto the carpet.
