Our new Sex Pistols collaboration pays tribute to the infamous TV interview that catapulted the band to notoriety. And the subsequent headlines that helped put the band on the map. For those that don’t know, here’s what happened that day.
The band plus entourage were hurried into the studio’s Green Room while the producers began damage control. Thames Television’s phone lines were jammed for hours with complaints. Due to a fault in the system, unanswered calls were getting diverted to another part of the studio. The Green Room. People were ringing up to complain about the Sex Pistols, and the Sex Pistols were answering the phone and winding them up.
