Strip away the swearing and the puking, the spitting and the sneering, the safety pins and the shredded clothes, and the Sex Pistols were just another great pop band. Colourful, compelling, winningly ridiculous, The Sex Pistols followed in a long line of impudent singles bands- The Who, Pretty Things, Yardbirds, Small Faces- who were embraced by spotty teen miscreants around the globe while alienating their parents. Their first three singles were, quite literally, a blast. Anarchy in The UK , God Save The Queen and Pretty Vacant were cultural hand-grenades: detonations of gleeful din, bright flashes of melody and energy and noise, lobbed across enemy lines to rain shock and awe upon a slumbering population whose pop charts had gotten slick, safe and stale. Pretty Vacant in particular still sounds as raw and audacious as the day it was made. It's brash, thrilling, a joyous outrage.
