Los Angeles: Warner Bros. 1977. First Edition. 33" x 24" approx. color poster printed verso only. Folded in sixths, presumably as issued. Some wear at edges. Very good. Very good. Item #13599
Original 1977 promotional poster for the US release of the Sex Pistol's only studio album NEVER MIND THE BOLLOCKS HERE'S THE SEX PISTOLS. Featuring a large B&W image of Rotten with a smaller photo inset of the band and a two line quotation from "No Future" ("We're the flowers in the dustbin..."), the poster lacks the signature Jamie-Reid designed intensity of the Pistols' UK promotional items. Warner Brothers Records signed the Pistols in October 1977 and released BOLLOCKS less than a month later - rushing the album into print in order to capitalize on the various UK Pistols controversies as well as the band's upcoming (and ultimately aborted) US tour. Scarce. Not in Burgess and Parker, but reproduced in Savage's ENGLAND'S DREAMING (see color photo inset).
