Pistols Post-Rotten

Any good?

Pick two











It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

I don't think I'd seen the video for 'Silly Thing' before. Cook & Jones were happy to turn The Pistols into a mainstream metal act, which makes you wonder how much they got punk in the first place. Basically The Pistols without Rotten is completely pointless, although I did think 'My Way' was great.

I don’t even know if I’d credit them with that much. They did all sorts of shit. They just wanted cash. Fucking idiots the pair of them.

My wife told me, when one of her teachers taught the class about the word "irony", he played them the Sid version of My Way.

It's all garbage innit?

Does anybody remember the "Sid Sings" LP? It was awful too I bet.

I loooove "Swindle." "Silly Thing" is okay in a pop-punk sort of way. "My Way" has a perverse power to it, though it's not something I'd want to listen to all the time.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

I loved it all I was only 13 and drew no distinction between the earlier stuff and this.
Swindle is one of the greatest things they ever did and I love Tenpole Tudor on it, same with Who Killed Bambi.

I must say by dad baulked at No One is Innocent. I didn't know who Brady and Hindley were but it obviously scared his generation deeply.
And if you tolerate this then your children will be next

Suddenly your love of the Manic Street cleaners becomes understandable.

It amuses me that people are offended - from either angle - by it

I bought them all at the time. I like them all for the most part.
Silly Thing and No One Is Innocent - I had a French copy that was titled 'Cosh the Driver' - are my two favourites

I love Silly Thing – it’s a great track.

Something Else – I can take or leave it

No One is Innocent – my motto! They wouldn’t get away with it these days of course.

My Way – love it

TGRnRS – an embarrassment

Friggin in the Riggin – gratuitous filth? I used to like it but now it makes me cringe a little. Those lyrics! I don’t think I heard “delighted squeals revealed the eels had found her sexual quarters” at the time.

It's all good; I love a good loud guitar tune you can whistle or sing a long to, I am a man of simple but melodic tastes.

My dad liked that one, I think it took him back to drinking in the Student Union bar on a Wednesday night.
