A bizarro collage of the PISTOLS corpse and a McLaren vanity project... this album is the soundtrack to the 1980 film.
Johnny Rotten refused to take part and had already left the band. Despite that the band re-recorded the music and used Rotten's demo session recordings. A few new songs, novelty covers by other bands / performance artists, Ronnie Biggs singing "Belson was a Gas"(!), and most famously Sid Vicious covering "My Way".

Never Mind The Bollocks, Here's The Sex Pistols was the sound of a hydrogen bomb being dropped on your head, and The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle collects some of the debris left after the explosion; parts are brilliant, but it's ultimately a padded and slightly depressing look at a great band in collapse. - All Music4/5
