The Sex Pistols: The dead horse is shaken again

Just to reassure you, it IS 2012:

Punk rock band The Sex Pistols have signed a record deal with Universal, it has been announced.
Why? Seriously: what is point new Sex Pistols deal?
An "expanded and repackaged edition" of the band's Never Mind The Bollocks, Here's The Sex Pistols album will be released later this year.
Repackaged? Isn't the original packaging kind-of the bit that's stood the test of time?
"To be given the opportunity to re-evaluate the Sex Pistols catalogue is every music lover's dream," said Universal's Karen Simmonds.
Really, Universal's Karen Simmonds? You think that not just anybody who believes that there's anything left to re-evaluate, but that every music lover is dreaming of doing it?

Record labels. They're really their own worst enemies, aren't they?
