Poster promoting the Sex Pistols' last shows in the UK: their ''Never Mind The Bans'' tour. The poster's designer Jamie Reid puts the punk band's image to work, proudly displaying a collage of rejection letter clippings from venues that refused to host them. One reads: ''...The unfortunate reputation they have gained seems to bring in its wake inevitable scenes of violence and resulting damage...'' Slated to play eight shows in the UK from 16-25 December 1977, the turmoil-laden band had to cancel half of them and would never play the UK again. Sid Vicious would die shortly thereafter of a heroin overdose on 1 February 1979 at age 21. This is a single-sided test print used in creating the ultimately double-sided poster. Measures 11.5'' x 16.5'' with toning and foxing in spots and various small tears forming along edges. Tear along right edge has been taped back together. A tiny pinhole has formed near ''Mind'' in ''Never Mind''. Else very good condition. A scarce Sex Pistols poster from the height of their punk rock reign.
