I really need to get caught up. I haven't read any issues since "Scab". The story sounds interesting. There's never been a Hellblazer storyline with The Sex Pistols has there? I haven't seen a cover a like from Simon Bisley though.

There was that one issue, early on, where they accidentally raised the spirit of Sid Vicious. I think it was a Delano issue? Or maybe an Ennis? Somebody help me out here. It was definitely a flashback to John's early career. Maybe it was in Son of Man? Damn it, somebody help me out!

You're right. It was in Son of Man. I vaguely remember a line where John comments on how shitty he sounded.

I think his bass gets given to the medium during Jenkins' run as well.

umm..."Anarcho-punks" and "Sid Vicious"? No, no, no.

Punks worship Sid Vicious.

Anarcho-punk is something like Dead Kennedys, Against All Authority, or Millions of Dead Cops, those following in the legacy of Crass, when anarchism was a political statement after the New Left died when autonomism was seen as the future of the Left, before the Sex Pistols.

That's a bit like saying "Offspring" and "underground".

All of those bands (including Crass who have the best claim by a mile) were formed after the Pistols split, Christian.

Now if you were saying The Deviants or Hawkwind, you could maybe have a point about pre-Pistols pop anarchists...

I was only referring to Crass as pre-dating the Pistols and saying that the other anarcho-punk bands followed on from Crass rather than the Pistols.

But, yes, I did think that Crass pre-dated the Pistols.

You're sure they were after the Pistols?
