Description

By January 1978, the Sex Pistols were the most talked about band on the planet. They also enjoyed the sobriquet of being the "scourge" of the British Establishment. The Pistols' anarchic antics had largely gone unnoticed in America, and it wasn't until Warner Bros secured the U.S. rights to distribute the band's debut album Never Mind The Bollocks in November 1977 that the American media sat up and took notice. Plans were soon underway to bring the Pistols over to America, but Warners hadn't counted on the band's manager, the irascible Malcolm McLaren. In purposely eschewing New York and Los Angeles in favor of off-the-rock'n'roll radar outposts such as Memphis, San Antonio and Baton Rouge, McLaren sowed the seeds for a countercultural clash that continues to resonate across America. No Feelings, No Future, No Fun: the Sex Pistols' '78 U.S. Tour covers the tour from varying perspectives-with many people sharing their experiences for the first time. The book also endeavours to separate fact from the many fallacies that still surround those twelve days of mayhem when the Sex Pistols wended their way across an unsuspecting USA.
