The Sex Pistols’ only official album was released October 28th, 1977 on Virgin Records. By mid-January 1978, they had broken up, Johnny Rotten quitting at the end of a concert in the US, saying “Ever get the feeling you’ve been cheated?” as he walked offstage.

I was actually put onto the band from the standout track Refuse/Resist, after seeing it used as the soundtrack for the Manga video promo seen below. On the inside was the first time I had seen the Supultura logo. Which would have [...]
You don’t often see cover art like this anymore. Just a simple graphic element that withstands any trends. It’s timeless. The less you explain to the viewer the more intrigue you create.
