Ever get the feeling you've been cheated again?

The Sex Pistols have announced plans to mark the 30th anniversary of the death of punk - which coincidently occurs on the 30th anniversary of Never Mind The Bollocks - by rereleasing a bunch of old stuff. There's going to be a new pressing of the album, and four singles throughout the month of October, in sleeves designed to make them look like punk records rather than EMI having a little birthday cash-in.

A 30th anniversary de luxe edition of a punk album. It not only records the failure, it is a record of own failure in the form of its own defeat.
