Punk legends to release first official full-length film
A new DVD of the Sex Pistols’ 30th anniversary gigs at Brixton Academy is due for release this summer.
Filmed over their five sell-out shows in London last November, “The Sex Pistols –There Will Always Be an England” is the only official concert-length DVD to have ever been endorsed by the band.
The eighty-minute film is directed by Julien Temple, famed for his insightful music documentaries “The Filth and the Fury”, “Glastonbury” and “The Great Rock and Roll Swindle”.
Bonus features include the Pistols’ alternative guide to London in which Johnny Rotten, Steve Jones, Paul Cook and Glen Matlock is filmed revisiting their old haunts.
The DVD, recorded in HD/5.1 surround sound, is set to appear in June to coincide with the Pistols’ European festival dates, which include headlining this year’s Isle of Wight Festival.
