Review

For a band that rescued rock & roll from the Uriah Heeps of the world in the late '70s, and made a mark on everything that followed, the Sex Pistols left behind precious little in terms of their recorded legacy. Their only official release being the earth-shattering NEVER MIND THE BOLLOCKS, enthusiasts have to turn to collections of outtakes and live material to further satisfy their Pistols jones. PRETTY VACANT is perhaps the most comprehensive of the lot, a double-disc affair that combines the previously released albums NO FUTURE UK and ORIGINAL PISTOLS LIVE. The NO FUTURE half of this set is essentially a repackaged version of what was originally called SPUNK; a bootlegged alternate version of the Sex Pistols debut album with some different songs and mixes on it, which was released to the gray market at the same time as NEVER MIND THE BOLLOCKS. For a glimpse into the early live sound of the Pistols, there's the second disc, which reprises ORIGINAL PISTOLS LIVE, offering an illuminating view of the punk pioneers in a very early stage of their development.
