Sex Pistols - No Future UK (2001) Retail CD
Don't be confused by the title of this album, because what we have here, is non-other than Rock's most famous bootleg, 'SPUNK', albeit under another name, with 3 extra tracks added to the original 12. Castle have improved the sound quality (compared to the version put out by Receiver in the early 90's), making it an essential purchase for all Pistols' fans.3 recording sessions make up 'No future UK': Tracks 1-7 from July 1976, 8&9 October 1976, and 10-15 January 1977, all produced by Dave Goodman.Although of Demo quality, they represent an historical document of one of the most important bandsmore… in Rock history, and make fascinating listening.The July '76 session is the best, and anyone used to the mega-production of the 'Bollocks' album will be surprised. They sound raw, yet full on, and utterly compelling. 'Submission' stands out with some great guitar work from Steve Jones. 'I Wanna Be Me' will be familiar to many, as this version was used as the B-side of the 'Anarchy In The UK' single. The October '76 'No Fun' was also a flip side, this time to 'Pretty Vacant'. Rotten's vocals on 'Anarchy...' from the same session, are amazing, he sounds quite terrifying.The January '77 session produces versions of songs not too dissimilar to the familiar 'Bollocks' versions, but again, the lack of layer upon layer of guitar differentiates them.Throughout this album, Glenn Matlock's bass can clearly be heard, driving the songs along, and his importance to the band as a musician/song writer should not be underestimated.It remains the source of much debate as to which is superior, the raw appeal of these demos or the perfect sound of 'Never Mind The Bollocks'. I say it's a pointless argument, because both are essential in different ways. But make no mistake, owners of 'NMTB' MUST own this CD, they belong together, side by side, in your collection.Unfortunately, I can't complete this review without commenting on the presentation of the CD, which really lets the music down. It is far too important to be lumped in with the other advertised releases in Castle's so-called 'Punk Collection'. To add insult to injury, the sleeve notes are inaccurate and lack information. Music which is, in effect, history in the making, deserves better...much better.
