1978, Spain. Nevada / ND-1.276
The greatest works of art sometimes are the most absurd: This Spanish supermarket budget LP with its glorious sleeve portrait of an anonymous hepkittie is a relentless onslaught of primitive punk noise. The band might have rehearsed their Sex Pistols cover versions, but then again, maybe not. Released in 1978, at the peak of punk rock as a media event, someone at a rackjobber budget vinyl operation thought that there’d be enough curiosity surrounding the Sex Pistols to warrant an attempt to cash in. The result is completely glorious – barely-there ultra-crunchy versions of all the tracks on Never Mind the Bollocks.
