Sex Pistols Poster Sold at Nate D. Sanders Auctions
The Sex Pistols were a punk band formed in 1975 whose attitude and actions largely influenced pop culture at the time. The band was started by Malcom McLaren to promote his London apparel store, Sex. Original members included Johnny Rotten, Steve Jones, Paul Cook and Glen Matlock. Sid Vicious replaced Matlock in 1977. Their sound was an infusion of pop and rock influences such as “The Who” and the “New York Dolls”. Despite having only one studio album “Never Mind the Bullocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols”, it remains a punk classic and has inspired numerous bands.

The Famous ”Oliver Twist Manifesto” Poster for the Sex Pistols’ Last Ever Show in Britain — Single Sided Test Print Before Poster’s Final Issue

This was the last show the tragic punk band would ever play in Britain. The concert was put on to benefit working class children whose parents had been laid off.

They have been pulled out of the French European Punk Rock Festival on August 21 at Mont de Morsan by the promoters who think they have gone ‘too far’…responsible for an incident during the recent Flaming Groovies and Ramones concert when a door was broken and a bottle thrown at Joey Ramone…” Time Out calls them ”The nastiest cluster of individuals to have boarded a London stage in years”.

Sex Pistols 1977 “God Save the Queen” Original Virgin Records Promotional Poster — Designed by Famed Anarchist Artist Jamie Reid
Original Sex Pistols 1977 “God Save the Queen” Virgin Records promotional concert poster designed by Jamie Reid, the anarchist artist who designed many of the band’s controversial covers. Designed for the album that became known as the “most heavily censored record in British history,” poster depicts a black and white Queen Elizabeth II with her features obscured by the song and band names in cutout letters against a traditional Union Jack Flag. The Queen’s eyes and mouth are torn to reveal “God Save The Queen Sex Pistols”. Arguably the single most memorable image to come from the Punk era. When the record sleeves were originally printed, the plate makers became incredibly offended at the Queen’s distorted image and halted printing. After much talk, production resumed and the record was finally released. Poster measures 39″ x 27″ and has various chips to edges, creasing and toning throughout. Good condition. Sold for $285.
