FlinterFile: The Sex Pistols- Anarchy In The UK
The first single of the Sex Pistols was quite controversial.The album, Never Mind the Bullocks, was first refused by two record labels and should appear on Virgin. There advertising was difficult, but the controversy did the work. However, it could only be released a year later, as the distribution was a problem: some organisations didn’t want to ship the album. As a stunt, they wanted to sing the song on a boat (the Queen Elizabeth) when passing the Houses of Parliament. It never happened, as the police stopped them. Punk had started and the band did bring some ‘anarchy’ in the UK. Strangely enough, the song only became number 38 in 1977 in the UK. Enjoy
