We asked The Sex Pistols to do one of their songs in a Revenge of the Lawn stylee and, to our aghast surprise, this is what we got.
They started their set at the Isle of Wight 2008 Festival with Pretty Vacant - not in the usual wall-of-sound distorted rock guitar way that we've all come to know and love, but in a very rickety, choppy, jerky rhythm, more associated with Revenge of the Lawn. A genius beginning, absolutely unsurpassable by any other band.
We began to think that all those pestering letters from us to them might not have been in vain, and that the restraining order on us and the injunction the Pistols had taken out against us might have been all worth while. However, their set went downhill from there.
