    To say that 1977 was a seminal year for music doesn't even begin to describe its importance

    Was listening to Never Mind The Bollocks the other night, and it's frightening just how little filler there is on there compared to other, supposedly more "talented" bands.

    Strip away all the attitude, hype, & fluff which surround them, and that's still a belting listen.

    This is the thing about the Sex Pistols - take away all the controversy and Malcolm McLaren and all the other bollocks and on that one album you're simply left with twelve great tunes that changed the whole of music

    The pistols were far better musicians than they would have you believe.

    Indeed. Although partly the reason that album sounds the way it does is that Glen Matlock played most of the bass on it rather than Sid Vicious, who was mostly in the band just to look the part

    Matlock was on bass on Anarchy, but Steve Jones played bass on all the other tracks.

    My comment about 1976 was a little tongue in cheek but the point I always make really is that the mid seventies sort of marks the time when music started to become corporate again. In the sixties and early seventies most of the music was coming from the people mainly to be said the working classes, primarily public taste was driving the music industry more than it had ever done before. There were loads of independent record labels which in many cases were owned by musicians themselves. The way for a band to work its way to the top was by starting in pubs and clubs, they had roots. Sure there were brief flutters like punk and the inde stuff that emerges from time to time.
    After the mid seventies the independent labels disappeared one by one , Sony Music seemed to buy every thing and within a few years the corporations were back in control.
    The situation now is that public taste in music is driven by the corporations rather than the other way around. Which ever way you shape it modern main stream music is the height of blandness.

    The major labels were very careful about their buying of the indie labels, just enough ownership to have a say, but no so much that they were disqualified from the indie charts and seen as selling out. All of the time that Creation were seen as an indie label they were 49% owned by Sony.

    As a mid-forties male, I'm not sure I've seen a music scene develop like punk which scares us older folks. Is that because we've grown up with edgier stuff, so we're not bothered by genres like grime, or is it because music is now so fragmented that a new style would simply not gain enough traction across all walks of society?

    If we’re up for music club we’ll let Alf pick first seeing as he started the thread and let’s say we’ve got until the end of this week and we’ll let someone else pick one every Monday and go from there...

    Cracking choice! Everyone knows the big hits but I'm not sure if I've ever listened to the album in order, in one go.

    There's only 1 song I ever skip out the 12. The other 11 are 5/5 on my I-Tunes

    Looking forward to seeing what everyone makes of it

    I had a listen earlier while I was making tea, obviously the big hits are absolute bangers

    I'll have a few more goes before Monday & then score each track

    I think G&R maybe a touch too heavy for me

    Be interesting to see what you make of songs like Mr Brownstone & Rocket Queen. Yeah there's a few heavy tracks on the album, but there's a lot of relatively lighter contrast to that too IMO.
