Sex Pistols Squirt Flood Gush

Kris Needs, New York Rocker, July 1977

AFTER MONTHS of concentrated opposition from about every form of authority under the sun, The Sex Pistols are finally winning. Everybody from record companies to local councils, as well as radio and television, has been trying to stifle the Pistols and shove 'em under the carpet where they can inflict no harm on the nation's children. I've had the sad job of reporting the group's latest sacking or banning in the last few New York Rockers, but now it's great to be able to say the Pistols are at last coming through.
