Punk's Dead # 357


Matthew D'Ancona, editor of the Spectator, has announced that his favourite record is Pretty Vacant, by the Sex Pistols.
He told the journalism weekly Press Gazette: "There is no pop record ever recorded that has such menace and attack. If you assume the purpose of pop is to conjure up that sense of teenage rebellion, I don't see how you can beat that record really. Everything after it is second rate. It is a full-blooded sonic attack that nearly 30 years later still has the power to put the hairs on the back of your neck up."
Lester Bangs, eat your heart out.
