classic pistolian raunch,
This review is from: I Didn't See It Coming (Audio CD)
A forgotten classic of early eighties rock and roll.For many the engine room of the hugely lionised Sex Pistols was the throbbing, snarling and unique sound of Steve Jones and Paul Cook on guitar and drums,and its here in spades. Tracks such as The Magnificent and Little boys in blue reach through the years to shake the most ramshackle old queen! Only one quibble,why no "Action man" the b-side from the first single? There are lots of extra tracks so why not the aforementioned earth shaking instrumental? Con -The master.

i agree with the gumption that the said hitherto afformentioned sex pistols would not have reached a zenith of unparalleled magnitude(punk wise), if it wasnt for steve jones guitar sound and cookies pile driving tubthumping. on the subject of action man, whilst this playful ditty is at the fulcrum of jones's style, it would be merely cankerous to put a b-side on a bands retrospective of hits. that said, for geek fans, the endurance and desire to downlaod it can be just as much fun as absorbing the musical offering itself.
for future reference...GET YOURSELF A COMPUTER !!! my friend jim slip (kev smith lookalike) has one to give away i believe

the impetus to buy a computer is sadly lacking within me , i prefer to access music the way it was intended by the artist not in a bastardised ,cheapened way which i feel lessens the impact , power and range of the music when married to todays "quick fix " computer generation to be "just another track" .

your intensions are most honourable sir. i have total respect for you and your family....and indeed, all who have sailed in her. its the money grabbing record industry that has turned normal citizens to a wave of downloading crime. whilst they surf the chaos by the means of mediums such as itunes and ofcourse amazon itself, it is that surfing that sees them as merely a veneer on the miniscus of peoples needs. they need to dive under the surface to see if there is a solution, without the fear of being bitten by a shark or two along the way. i strongly advise wage capping to curtail the so called 'superstars' from genuinely believing they are more than a mere menudo of yesterdays pioneers.

The passion and indeed elegance in which you couch your socialist dream of the music industry is a considerable string to to your already heavily laden quiver . However minor cul-de-sacs appear in your invective which when exposed to the cold light of day become yawning chasms that easily swallow the no doubt revolutionary zeal of the impassioned auteur.

ahh...let me start from the beginning. well no actually, it was simply far more refreshing to see jones/cook sporting a new bolero. the betatron akin to their sound was like a Chateaubriand placed in front of the consumer for breakfast, dinner, tea, supper and that little evening nibble you thought no one saw you take. ah ah..norty norty!
anyhow, in my domicile there was simply no egress whilst taking in the delights of these now punk gurus. the hardihood entwined in their endeavours was hardly juxtaposed to their prior offerings.
more of a moquette than wooden floor, i didnt see it coming is more of a pachinko than pachisi experiment.the pathos shared by many over the pistols demise will always rile the most passionate of advocate, but this scheming is like a sirocco encased in a silo waiting to be relased by the listener after he/she obeys a stretto of verbal wishes.
overall jones and cook are thalassocracy with their urbane efforts that dwarf any second rate vaudeville.heres hoping their apparant zenith doesnt hinder the hope of a whirlgig of material to influence more contemporary menudos.
