Flowers In Your Dustbin
God Save The Sex Pistols Gavin Walsh (Plexus).
Published as competition for Parker & Burgesss Satellite (or Set-A-Light & Retire - as its known in the darker corners of the tMx Bunker Ed) God Save The Sex Pistols is somewhat of a damp squib by comparison.
There is absolutely nothing new in this book - whatsoever. Nothing any half-soaked Pistols collector hasnt already seen. Its all common gear. Its a well-known fact amongst Pistols collectors that Gavin has a stash of acetates that are unique so why hasnt he included these???? Listing catalogue numbers for foreign releases & bootleg LPs. Boooooooooring, maaaaan! Lets see something new that we cant get on the friggin internet.
A quick straw poll of some of my most trusted fellow Pistols collectors has concluded that God Save The Sex Pistols is a beginners guide at best & a missed opportunity at the very worst.
