Diese Nummer ist dermassen absurd, die muss einfach hier in der Gruft dokumentieren! „The Great Rock’n’Roll Swindle“ eben. Nach dem Parfüm, dem Dschungelcamp und dem Werbespot für Sportwetten nun also Kreditkarten.
Virgin Money, the bank backed by Sir Richard Branson, has launched an series of Sex Pistols credit cards, including two featuring the artwork for the band’s 1977 album Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols, in its full uncensored glory. A third card features imagery relating to the single Anarchy in the UK.
It is not clear that own-brand credit cards were what John Lydon had in mind when he spat out the line “Your future dream is a shopping scheme” on that debut single, released in November 1976. More recently, he starred in a TV advertising campaign for Country Life butter.
