JAMIE REID / SEX PISTOLS

The Sex Pistols may have only been together for two years in the late ’70s, but they changed the face of popular music. Through their raw, nihilistic singles and violent performances, the band revolutionised the idea of what rock & roll could be. In England, the group was considered dangerous to the very fabric of society and was banned across the country. Jamie Reid’s artwork to the Sex Pistols ‘Never Mind The Bollocks’ sleeve was the No.1 most voted for album cover of all time. He was the graphic artist and back-bone to Malcolm MaClaren & Vivienne Westwood’s Seditionaries label and punk gods, The Sex Pistols. He remains the country’s top anti-establishment big name artist and is infamous as the agitator who put the safety pin through the Queen’s lip to visually define punk and it’s icons, the Sex Pistols.
