Sid Vicious 'Sid Lives'

2 x CD

Sid Vicious 'Sid Lives' CD cover

The resurrection of SID VICIOUS continues with a deluxe double-CD ‘SID LIVES’ of Sid’s last ever four shows.  It will coincide with the 30th anniversary of the Sex Pistols’ ‘Never Mind The Bollocks’, the Pistols’ live reunion and an NME campaign to get them to #1 in the charts.  

Containing 39 tracks, mostly previously unreleased, it comes packaged with a comprehensive 8,000-word 24-page booklet.  This tells the story of Sid: firstly in an eyewitness account from pre-Pistols early days to his demise (and inevitable Nancy death theories), from surviving guitarist Steve Dior; secondly in a lengthy SID, NANCY and SEX PISTOLS day-by-day timeline; plus a song-by-song background.

Since his death Sid has come to symbolise the Sex Pistols – always courting controversy he out-did old college-mate Johnny Rotten in the punk outrage stakes.  With an impressive rock’n’roll voice and an abundance of attitude, just three memorable solo singles was all that he left – plus an industry of posters, documentaries and films.  

These recordings, backed by the New York Dolls’ late rhythm section of Arthur Kane and Jerry Nolan along with Steve Dior (at that time trading together as ‘The Idols’), show the direction Sid may have gone for his next recordings had he lived.

Priced at ‘under-a-tenner’ in the shops this is the definitive Sid Vicious release for all fans of the punk-rock scene.
