Sex Pistols original 1979 poster ''Young Flesh Required, The Great Rock N' Roll Swindle''. The infamous punk band turn their hostilities on their own record label with this very large poster designed by Jamie Reid. Banned by American Express, its image of a ''Sex Pistols'' credit card with ''Virgin Records'' named as the cardholder signifies the band's feeling they were exploited unfairly for profit. Titles put this sentiment in no uncertain terms: ''The Artist (The Prostitute) / Your name could be here. Your talents will become a source / of unlimited cash for the Record / Company (The Pimp) / The Record Company (The Pimp) / The people who own this, own you. They will spend the cash you / generate on schemes to increase / their own power. You will get a / small percentage of what you earn. The Business (The Swindle) / Played by everyone including / the Record Company The manager / the Promoter the Press the Disc Jockey / and if you're smart, you.'' Measures 39.75'' x 27.75''. Creasing, else near fine. With provenance from Christie's.
