Sex Pistols / Never Mind The Bollocks... Super Deluxe Edition box set

Sex Pistols / Never Mind The Bollocks... Super Deluxe Edition box setUniversal Music will reissue an expensive Super Deluxe Edition box set of the Sex PistolsNever Mind The Bollocks… album on 17 September 2012.

The reissue ties in with the 35th anniversary of the record. No details have been released yet, but amazon.co.uk have a pre-order listing stating four discs will be contained within the set.

Given the plethora of compilations over the years and box sets such as the reasonably comprehensive 61-track Sex Pistols from 2002, it remains to be seen whether Universal can serve up anything new, or if this release turns out to be a Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Swindle. 

A cheaper (probably two-disc) deluxe edition will also be issued at the same time.

    oooh, will the set include an audio dvd with the remastered 5.1 mixes in 96khz/24bit?
    anyway, will check it out ofc, would prefer a vinyl box though.

    They did the deal with Universal in the first place! I’m sure they will say “thank you very much” and happily take the filthy lucre for their pension funds!

    I’ll bet that most of the material comes from the 2002 box set + remastered stuff + maybe a handfull of unreleased songs.

    A deluxe boxset? Kind of anti-punk dontchathink? I wonder what the Pistols themselves have to say? :-)

      I think they’d say that it’s time to earn yet another cartload of money for next-to-nothing. All that soul-searching about credibility and selling-out was the preserve of nouveau-hippy fakers like The Clash.

      The Sex Pistols always made it perfectly clear that they want to earn a fat wad while p*ssing off as many people as possible, and they’ve did a good job of meeting those objectives, even if it took them a while to do the first and they’re now incapable of doing the second any more.
