The summer of punk.
Celebrating forty years of punk, legendary outfit the Sex Pistols will release live recordings from their 1976 UK tour as a deluxe vinyl box set.
Remastered at Abbey Road studios, the release sees four historic live performances come together across four LPs. The first recording is from their mythical appearance at Manchester’s Lesser Free Trade Hall, aka “the gig that changed the world” and the gig that thousands of people claim to have attended but probably didn’t.
The other three shows include their ‘Midnight Special’ gig at Screen on the Green, a live show at Chelmsford Maximum Security Prison and a performance at 76 Club, Burton on Trent.
The set also include photographs from the era and an original facsimile press kit with articles from Melody Maker, Sounds, Rock Star and Rock New.
Due on 19 August 2016, pre-order the Live ’76 box set here.
