PISTOL: Danny Boyles’ Sex Pistols Tribute 

‘’One word: Destroy!’’

Premiering on May 31, FX’s mini-series biopic brings the story of the world’s most rebellious band – The Sex Pistols. 6-episode show is written and created by Craig Pearce (who wrote screenplays for The Great Gatsby (2013), Moulin Rouge (2001), Romeo + Juliette (1996)  and directed by Danny Boyle (Shallow Grave (1994), Trainspotting (1996), The Beach (2000), Slumdog Millionaire (2008).

The screenplay is an adaptation of Steve Jones’ memoir: Lonely boy: Tales From a Sex Pistol.

A bunch of newcomers features the series: Toby Wallace as Steve Jones, Jacob Slater as Paul Cook, Anson Boon as John Lydon, Christian Lys as Glen Matlock, Louis Partridge as Sid Vicious, Sydney Chandler as Chrissie Hynde, Talula Riley as Vivienne Westwood, Macy Williams as Jordan, Emma Appleton as Nancy Spangen and Thomas Brody-Sangster as Malcolm McLaren.

The brief official trailer for Pistol, titled ‘Destroy,’ was released on April 4 and features Boon’s Lydon telling his bandmates that “the monarchy has stolen our future” before we hear about the start of “a youth revolution.”

The Sex Pistols

Were a British punk rock band who, with their song “God Save the Queen” became a symbol of the country’s political and social unrest in the late 1970s. Defying the monarchy as a political system, and Margaret Thatcher’s regime, the band made a huge impact on UK’s youth, voicing their discontent and the doubts regarding the future. ‘’No future!’’ became a fueling and raging motto amongst the young. They wanted not to change the world but to destroy it completely, as they never wanted to be a part of the system that was so utterly unjust. 

Sounds fresh and revolutionary even today, doesn’t it? 

Even though The Sex Pistols recorded only one studio album, the 1977 Nevermind the Bollocks, Here’s The Sex Pistols, the album is considered the most influential of all times, for the whole movement it created. Countless artists were inspired by the punk movement, continuing to address the issues of the society they were part of, promoting anarchy as this new idea, as it seemed the only way out. 

And yes, punk’s not dead!

Come see us play, we’re awful!
