Get some Anarchy in your life!
on 5 August 2013
Alright, so this was filmed in 07, when the Pistols are all pushing/past 50. Fear not, for Uncle Johnny gives it loads of welly! He's ably backed by Jones, Cook and Matlock who sensibly concentrate on laying the musical foundations, whilst Rotten provides the music-hall face mugging, expletive ridden pronouncements and vocal histrionics.
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!
