Let's face it, this is the best recorded Sex Pistols gig we are going to get, so enjoy it: they sound great and have enough energy to provide plenty of wallop. The crowd go mental; young and old alike.
Put simply: get some booze in, turn it up and lose yourself in anarchistic reverie!
Highlights: a rocking 'Did You No Wrong'; a cracking 'Holidays'; an incendiary 'Bodies'; Lydon forgetting the words but coming off as strangely loveable for it; and Lydon spitting brandy into his own eyes!
The extras (Pistols' guide to London) are enjoyable; Lydon's anti-corporate rant is marmite, I love it!
The extras, as most other reviewer's agree, are great to have, and with other opinions captured on the 'NMTBollocks' classic album DVD, what else could they have done? Top-notch disc for my money, and it will be played hard, believe me. Great that so many member's of the audience will be able to see themselves on it, too, especially the great looking chick wearing the green panties, rock on, babe; you most certainly had a great time, didn't you!
There are not many bands that are as milked as the Pistols. A band that released only one single "true" album but the sheer numbers of music discs and videos released under their name is quite mind bloggling! The performance being more recent means a paunchier, slower and less aggresive Sex Pistols but the newer recording means better sound and picture quality and that must have meant something to their equally aging followers like myself but hey, they have newer younger fans too and I know them personally. Having said that, I'm quite amazed to see young chaps not even born when the Pistols were the king of punks donning Pistols t-shirts even here in $ingapore! The highlight of most Pistols' concerts, apart from the music is John's wit and humour. Most concerts will have the lead saying something lame like "Are u enjoying yourselves tonight?" but not John. He talks to the audience like a mate, sometimes even slagging them off and his colourful swear words are a joy to listen to! They may be older and have less teeth in their mouth but the music is still rock solid and made me dance the pogo when I watched this video. For those of you in Asian countries who may have a slim chance to catch them live, this IS the best alternative!
but what really made this dvd for me were the extras. one part is "the knowledge", which is the band's guide to what places in london were important in the history of the Pistols, and within this is john lydon's open-top bus trip around london - you get a taste of it from the trailer but the full segment itself is excellent. it's refreshing to let them do their own talking given all the hype that normally surrounds the band and I think you have to give a lot of credit to Julien Temple for capturing it all.
all in all I think this is a great DVD that didn't disappoint me in any way - not bad for under a tenner!
