Early Sex Pistols recordings set for new box set release

From Loudersound.

A new Sex Pistols box set will be released later this year which will contain 80 alternate versions of tracks that would go on to appear on their 1977 album Never Mind The Bollocks.

Titled Sex Pistols 76-77, it’ll be released as a 4CD box set and on digital and streaming platforms on September 24, with all the tracks in the collection recorded between May 1976 and September 1977.

It’ll also include a total of eight previously unreleased versions alongside 30 tracks which will be available digitally for the very first time.

A statement reads: “This Sex Pistols set is an audio journey of demos and outtakes plotting just how Never Mind The Bollocks came to be. It wasn’t luck but instead inspiration, creativity and hard work over a short and intense period of time full of infamous and now legendary stories.

What follows is a background into how these tracks line up with the bands history and the release of the final album.”

Sex Pistols 76-77 is now available to pre-order.
