Ever Get The Feeling You've Been Cheated?

Nearly two years of posts at Bagging Area and I've never had put up anything by the Sex Pistols. They split up in 1978 after a traumatic tour of the US, finishing with a gig at San Francisco's Winterland Ballroom. Ending (the gig and the band, at least until that mid 90s reformation) with a cover of The Stooges' No Fun, Johnny Rotten, soon to revert to John Lydon, introduced the song with 'This is No Fun, no fun at all' and the question at the top of this post. All of which is on this legendary recording.

Fantastic stuff - I remember being blown away by the booty of this gig. And following on from your last post Iggy's sticky fingers are all over punk - I Feel Alright closes the Damned's debut album. The fact the Pistols chose the slab-handed riffing and The Damned went for rip-roaring speed is an indicator of both bands attitudes...

PS if you're passing a newsagent or Smiths keep an eye out for Vive Le Rock mag I've written 8 pages on The Damned for it (inc new interviews with Capt, Rat and others)
