Anarchy In The UK. The SEX PISTOLS.


Anarchy In The UK.

Original large-size promotional poster designed by Jamie Reid for the Sex Pistols' first record, overprinted with an announcement for their Anarchy tour concert at the Electric Circus, Manchester, 19th December (1976). Offset litho. 69x104cm.

The image is taken from a photograph by Ray Stevenson of a small ripped up souvenir union jack flag, blown up and screenprinted by Reid. The Electric Circus concert, which replaced the cancelled Guildford date, occurred ten days after the Sex Pistols' first appearance at the venue, and was one of only seven dates of the tour's original twenty-four they actually played.

Very light restoration, o/w Near Fine. Conservation linen backed.
