Sex Pistols – The Artist
The Sex Pistols were an English punk rock band that formed in London in 1975. They were responsible for initiating the punk movement in the United Kingdom and inspiring many later punk and alternative rock musicians. Although their initial career lasted just two and a half years and produced only four singles and one studio album, Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols, they are regarded as one of the most influential acts in the history of popular music.
The Sex Pistols originally comprised vocalist Johnny Rotten (John Lydon), guitarist Steve Jones, drummer Paul Cook, and bassist Glen Matlock. Matlock was replaced by Sid Vicious in early 1977. Under the management of impresario Malcolm McLaren, the band provoked controversies that both captivated and appalled Britain. Their concerts repeatedly faced difficulties with organisers and authorities, and public appearances often ended in mayhem.
Pretty Vacant – The Song
‘Pretty Vacant’ is a song by the English punk rock band the Sex Pistols. It was released in 1977 as the band’s third single and was later featured on their only album, Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols, released during that same year. The song reached No. 6 on the UK Singles Chart and marked the band’s first appearance on the British chart music TV programme Top of the Pops. The song gained attention for vocalist John Lydon’s phrasing of the word “vacant”, emphasising the last syllable to sound like the vulgar word. According to bassist Glen Matlock, the song’s main riff was inspired by hearing “S.O.S.” by ABBA.
Punk Girl – The Shape
Modelled into a silhouette of the a punk girl sporting a mohican or mohawk haircut. The mohawk (also referred to as a mohican) is a hairstyle in which, in the most common variety, both sides of the head are shaven, leaving a strip of noticeably longer hair in the center. The mohawk is also sometimes referred to as an iro in reference to the Iroquois (who include the Mohawk people), from whom the hairstyle is supposedly derived – though historically the hair was plucked out rather than shaved.
