Although Johnny Rotten and company failed to amuse the monarchy, the Sex Pistols did manage to entertain 500 or so persons detained at Her Majesty's pleasure with a show at a top security prison in Chelmsford on September 17, 1976, three days before their fabled 100 Club gig and 21 days before signing to EMI. Interesting fact: the Pistols' nice-guy Paul Cook, who began his apprenticeship as an electrician at Watney's Brewers that very day, turned up drunk and proceeded to fall off his drum stool--an event sadly not captured on this mix-board recording. Much audio negligence is in evidence throughout--in fact, Glen Matlock's bass is completely inaudible. Still, this impudent live shambles has plenty of Rotten's lip and cackling menace and--while hardly as essential as Never Mind the Bollocks--reminds us just how nasty it all must have sounded in the very same week the Wurzels, Acker Bilk, and the Bay City Rollers were hogging the U.K. top 10. --Kevin Maidment --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Thanks for a great blog and for this historic concert.
Just a little question why is Sid on every single Sex Pistols bootleg-cover , even the ones from concerts, like this one, long before he joined the band?
