The double entendre of "EMI" {a swipe at the record label and A&M as well as meaning "every mistake imaginable} is pretty clever, "God save the Queen" is actually a superb slab of primal rock and teenage insight and "Pretty vacant" for me outweighs anything I ever heard in punk. In the days when the censor ruled, it was such a funny way of being able to say "c u n t" on a record without being pulled up on it. 14 year olds all over the land had a field day.
    I cant doubt or disagree with what you say there, but God Save the Queen and Pretty Vacunt were hits down to the 'pantomine' about the Sex Pistols and them being banned everywhere which made all us younguns go out and buy their records. All thanks to Malcom McClaren really.

    The Stranglers on the other hand (the other Punk band of the time) actually had some good stuff which appealed to a lot of people. But then I remember it was Peaches which grabbed our attention for obvious reasons. Was there a concert in the Isle of White with all naked girls?
