Sex Pistols Sign New Record Deal For 'Never Mind The Bollocks' Re-Release

Punk rock legends the Sex Pistols have signed a brand new record deal ahead of the updated re-release of their seminal 1977 album ‘Never Mind the Bollocks’.

The band will be putting out a re-issue of the album to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the release, and has been said to have been ‘expanded and re-packaged’ in time for fans to celebrate the milestone since the album changed the music scene all those years ago. And, to go with the release, the band have penned a deal with Universal Music Catalogue UK – who are excited at the prospect of ‘re-evaluating the Sex Pistols catalogue’.

“To be given the opportunity to re-evaluate the Sex Pistols catalogue is every music lover’s dream,” said Universal Music Catalogue’s Karen Simmonds. “We’re looking forward to working with the band and celebrating their impact on worldwide culture.”

Sex Pistols frontman Johnny Rotten added: “Music can be great, when done by the great. The Sex Pistols are the greatest. Universal now has a trophy room, music is the imitation of nature, the Sex Pistols are nature, so please give generously. Thank you.”

Fans will be pleased to know that extra releases and other events are lined-up for the rest of the year.

It doesn’t take a team of Musicologists and a supercomputer to come to the conclusion that politics is featuring less and less in our most popular music. Now more than anytime in our post-war history, the inclusion of economic and social issues as a staple of modern popular music is becoming increasingly non-existent – as a record buying public, we simply don’t seem to be that bothered about the ‘next revolution‘ or the overthrow of the ‘establishment‘.
