Sid Vicious: Sid Lives!
2019 RSD Black Friday Release
The resurrection of SID VICIOUS continues with SID LIVES' - a 2xLP set of Sid's four last-ever shows, containing 39 tracks, mostly previously unreleased and packaged with comprehensive 8,000-word notes in the gatefold sleeve. It tells the story of Sid: firstly in an eyewitness account from surviving guitarist Steve Dior; secondly in a lengthy SId, Nancy and Sex Pistols day-by-day timeline from pre-Pistols early days to his demise (and inevitable Nancy death theories); plus a song-by-song background.
Since his death Sid has come to symbolize the Sex Pistols - always courting controversy he out-did old college-mate Johnny Rotten in the punk outrage stakes. With an impressive rock'n'roll voice and an abundance of attitude, just three memorable solo singles was all that he left - plus an industry of posters, documentaries and films.
These recordings, backed by the New York Dolls' late rhythm section of Arthur Kane and Jerry Nolan along with guitarist Steve Dior (at that time trading together as 'The Idols'), show the direction Sid would have gone for his next recordings had he lived. This is the definitive Sid Vicious release for all fans of the punk-rock scene. TRI-COLOR (RED, WHITE & BLUE) VINYL.
