There are descriptions of early Sex Pistols gigs as told by fans (the above Doncaster and Sheffield ones included) in this book Our Generation: The Punk and Mod Children of Sheffield, Rotherham and Doncaster
and also more accounts and rare Sex Pistols photos and contracts in Out of Control: Punk Rock at the Doncaster Outlook and Rotherham Windmill 1976-1978 (Our Generation)
This is Our Generation Calling: Punk and Mod in and Around Sheffield - The Conclusion
and why not read another genuine early Punk account
The Secret Life of a Teenage Punk Rocker: The Andy Blade Chronicles
It's a great book & gives loads of info that no other Pistols books I've read has.
There's no way of telling which of the many available books is the most concise, but I enjoyed reading this one loads.
This is as unbalanced as most biographies, which is fair enough, but at the end you're left realising exactly why he was booted out in the first place. He deserves his place in history and he deserves his say but what is glaringly, even more, obvious after reading this is that had any other singer been roped in to front the sex pistols then, well, I wouldn't be writing this and Glen Matlock would probably still be a shop assistant. John Lydon is, was and always will be the beating heart and soul of the band, the reason why so many people love, hate, idolise and despise them still. Glen cannot accept that.
There are some interesting insights into the band in here but its all clouded by the underlying bitterness and, frankly, poor writing.
