FT/9 comments • 4,753 views

Plenty of words have been written about the seminal Sex Pistols’ seminal gig at the seminal Manchester Free Trade Hall in 1976. There has even been a whole book about it! Everyone knows that the gig was really very important indeed and that everyone who attended became a very extremely important person. HOWEVER does everyone know exactly who was there? Does everyone have access to a crumpled piece of paper which – archaeological evidence PROVES – contains the ACTUAL LIST of attendees at that gig? Freaky Trigger does. And here it is:

  1. Morrissey
  2. Mick Hucknall
  3. Howard Devoto
  4. Pete Shelley
  5. Ian Curtis
  6. Barney
  7. Hooky*
  8. Linder
  9. Tony Wilson
