Sex Pistols – Ultra Rare May 1977 Glitterbest Press Kit, Issued with “God Save the Queen” Release
An extremely rare May 1977 press kit for the Sex Pistols issued by Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren’s Glitterbest Ltd., in conjunction with the release of the Sex Pistols’ second single, “God Save the Queen.”
This is the fourth (and perhaps rarest) of the Glitterbest Sex Pistols press kits, and undoubtedly the most interesting, as it covers the entire chaotic history of the Pistols, up until the release of their masterpiece second single, including reprints of Melody Maker article detailing the chaos around the band, their signing to EMI, the Bill Grundy affair, being dropped by EMI, insulting the Queen with their new song GSTQ, their signing and dropping from A&M, and Virgin signing and their upcoming single, “God Save the Queen”.
Designed by Jamie Reid and Glitterbest’s Sophie Richmond, and printed by Reid’s Suburban Press. 12 pages, printed on thin card stock, this is the only example we’ve ever seen. In excellent condition, 8 1/4″ x 11 3/4″. Exceptionally rare and sought after.
