Virgin Money to issue three cards featuring Pistols branding
The Sex Pistols are to feature on a new range of credit cards launching by Virgin Money.
The bank, founded in 1995 by Richard Branson, will issue three cards with Sex Pistols branding on them: two featuring the artwork for the band’s 1977 album Never Mind The Bollocks, Here’s The Sex Pistols, with a third single utilises imagery from the single, “Anarchy In The UK“.
In a statement, Virgin Money said it was “time for consumers to put a little bit of rebellion in their pocket”. Michele Greene, the bank’s director of cards, said: “In launching these cards, we wanted to celebrate Virgin’s heritage and difference. The Sex Pistols challenged convention and the established ways of thinking – just as we are doing today in our quest to shake up UK banking.”
“Even after nearly 40 years, the Sex Pistols’ power to provoke is undimmed,” said Richard Branson.
