Night Music: Anarchy In The UK

September 10, 2022

For those of us of a certain age, the release and success of the Sex Pistols’ “Anarchy In the UK” single on November 26, 1976, was the sign — if we still needed it — that the summer of love was long forgotten.

I became a hardcore punk — my wildly abandoned pogo’ing was known on three continents — and while my tastes became more attuned to the Clash and the Ramones, we have to look back on these pre-Sid Vicious Sex Pistols days with a certain nostalgia.  In the late-90s, they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame but they disdained the “honour”, calling the Hall “a piss stain”.  Ah, the charm of it all!

Back when this was new, I remember swapping a copy of the Stones’ “Not Fade Away” for a copy of “Concrete and Clay“.  Ahh, the foolishness of youth!
